Lesson Notes
Elements and the Periodic Table
Elements are the basic building blocks of minerals.
Over 100 elements are known.
Smallest particles of matter
Have all the characteristics of an element
The nucleus is the central part of an atom and contains
 protons, which have positive electrical charges
 neutrons, which have neutral electrical charges
Energy levels, or shells
 surround the nucleus
 contain electrons—negatively charged particles
The atomic number is the number of protons in the nucleus of an atom.
 Isotopes of an element have the same number of protons but varying numbers of
 Have different mass numbers: the sum of the neutrons plus protons
 Many isotopes are radioactive and emit energy and particles.
 The mass number is the number of neutrons and protons in the nucleus of an
Why Atoms Bond
When an atom’s outermost energy level does not contain the maximum number of
electrons, the atom is likely to form a chemical bond with one or more atoms.
• A compound consists of two or more elements that are chemically combined in
specific proportions.
• An ion is an atom that gains or loses electrons.
Types of Chemical Bonds
1. Ionic bonds form between positive and negative ions.
2. Covalent bonds form when atoms share electrons.
3. Metallic bonds form when metal ions share electrons.
