Why do different atoms have different chemical properties?
because they have different structures
How would atoms of the same element be different and would these atoms have different chemical properties?
Different elements have different chemical properties because they have different atomic structures and characteristics. Different chemical elements have different atomic structures, and particularly different electron shell structures. Chemical bonding is generally based on electron structures of atoms, and as these structures vary (or are similar) so the chemical properties vary (or are similar).
A combination of two or more atoms that has physical and chemical properties that differ from the atoms that compose it is called?
What if a large atom bonds with a small atom will the new molecule be the same as a large atom or the same as a small atom or different from both atoms?
In any molecule containing a chemical bond between two atoms, irrespective of the relative sizes of the two bonded atoms, the chemical properties of the molecule will be different from the chemical properties of either bonded atom in isolation. the mixture is physical, properties from both elements get used. But if it is chemical, properties are totally new
A natural chemical element may be monoisotopic or has isotopes. Isotopes are atoms but they differ from other isotopes by the number of neutrons. This involve a different atomic mass and different physical properties or sometimes (for light isotopes) different chemical properties. Also, all chemical elements have radioactive, artificial isotopes.
If all atoms are composed of the same subatomic particles why do different atoms have diff chemical properties?
In 1802, John Dalton stated his Atomic Theory; these are the five characteristics of atoms he had discovered: Matter is made of individual and indivisible atoms. All atoms of a given element are identical in their physical and chemical properties. Atoms of different elements differ in their physical and chemical properties. Atoms of different elements combine in simple whole number ratios (Also Dalton's Law of Definite Composition). Chemical reactions involve the rearrangement of atoms.
The chemical properties of atoms are significantly changed when they form compounds. When elements combine to form compounds it is called a chemical reaction. The compound is then a collection of molecules and each molecule has in it atoms from the elements used in the formation. The atoms in the molecule are still the same atoms as one started with, but the arrangement of the electrons in the atoms has changed. It is the electronic…
1)all matter are made of very tiny particles called atoms2)atoms are indivisible particles, which cannot be created or destroyed in a chemical reacition3)atoms of a given element are indentical in mass and chemical properties4)atoms of different elements have different masses and chemical properties5)atoms combine in ratio of small whole numbers to form compounds6)the relative number and kinds of atoms are constant in a given compound
Chemical bonding is the joining of atoms to form new substances. The properties of these new substances are different from the properties of the original elements. An interaction that holds two atoms together is called a chemical bond. When chemical bonds form, electrons are shared, gained, or lost.
dalton's 6 postulates are- 1. all matter is made up of tiny particles called atoms 2.atoms are indivisible particles thtical elemat cannot be divided 3.atoms of identical elements are equal in mass and chemical properties. 4.atoms of different elements have different masses and chemical properties. 5.atoms divide in the ratio of small whno.ole
The postulates of John Dalton: 1. All matter is made up of atoms. These are the ultimate particles, and are indivisible and indestructible. 2. All atoms of a given element are identical, both in weight and in chemical properties. 3. Atoms of different elements have different weights and different chemical properties. 4. Atoms of different elements can combine in simple whole numbers to form compounds. 5. When a compound is decomposed, the recovered atoms are…
ISOTOPES= SAME element with different number of ""NEUTRONS"" *chemical properties ONLY depend on the outer arrangement of electrons and the way they are shared with other atoms ---->so the change in # of neutrons wouldn't affect its chemical properties *physical properties ( boiling and melting points, density...) would definitely be affected by any change in your element.
In an element, all the atoms are of the same type. That is, they all have the same number of protons in their nuclei (atomic number). A sample of an element cannot be separated into two or more components that have different chemical properties . (Isotopes don't count because they don't have different chemical properties. In a compound, atoms of different elements are connected into molecules or arrayed into crystals, but each molecule has the…
They all have the same number of neutrons. All atoms of a given element have a specific number of protons. That is what gives an element its elemental identity. But we know that different atoms of a given element can have different numbers of neutrons. These different atoms of the same element are the isotopes of that element. All the atoms of a given isotope of a given element will have the same number of…
Which statement is true Isotopes are atoms of different elements with equal mass. For the same element they have equal numbers of neutrons. Isotopes of a given element have similar chemical properties?
Atomic Number is the number of protons in the nucleus. It is also the number of electrons the atom has. It is the number of electrons that determines the chemical behavoir of the atom. Mass number is the number of Protons and Neutrons the nucleus has. Neutrons have no effect on the electron number and therefore on the atom's chemical behavoir. So atoms with the same Atomic Number and different Mass Number all have the…
