CHEM1011 - Resources for Week 5

Topics and Learning Outcomes

  • The Periodic Table
    •  recognize the relationships between elements in the same periods and in the same groups
    •  predict the properties of an element from its position, including its metallic, semi-metallic or non-metallic properties and the acid, basic or amphoteric properties of its oxide
  • Atomic Energy Levels
    •  identify the number of sub-shells available for each shell and the number of electrons that can fit in each of these
    •  write down electron configurations for atoms and ions
  • Lewis Model of Bonding
    •  draw Lewis structures for molecules containing single and multiple bonds and with lone pairs
    •  draw resonance structures for molecules where more than one Lewis structure is possible
    •  recognize that molecules with resonance structures have bonds which are intermediate between single and double bonds
