Example text

The number of protons in the nucleus of each atom of an element is the 9 of the element. Each element is represented by an abbreviation called a 10 . In addition to atomic number, name, and chemical symbol, each element has a characteristic 11 . Atoms of most elements consist of two or more isotopes that have different 12 . An arrangement of the elements in a manner © 2001 CRC Press LLC that reflects their recurring behavior with increasing atomic number is the 13 in which elements with similar chemical properties are called 14 and are contained in 15 in the periodic table.

Gases and the atmosphere are addressed in more detail in Chapter 14. At this point, however, it is important to have a basic understanding of the nature and behavior of gases. Physically, gases are the “loosest” form of matter. A quantity of gas has neither a definite shape nor a definite volume so that it takes on the shape and volume of the container in which it is held. The reason for this behavior is that gas molecules move independently and at random, bouncing off each other as they do so.

Mixtures can be separated into their constituent pure substances by physical processes. Liquified air is distilled to isolate pure oxygen (used in welding, industrial processes, for some specialized wastewater treatment processes, and for breathing by people with emphysema), liquid nitrogen (used for quick-freezing frozen foods), and argon (used in specialized types of welding because of its chemically non-reactive nature). 5) that can be isolated by means as simple as mechanical separation. 2) is such a mixture; individual grains of sand and pieces of gravel can be separated from concrete with a pick or other tool.
