Period: Name: Date: Now to Count Atoms Chemical formulas use the chemical element symbols found on the periodic table. Element symbols are either one capital letter or one capital letter followed by a lower case letter. For example, using H for hydrogen or He for helium. When counting atoms of each element in a chemical formula, first we need to identify which atoms are present. Next, we look for subscripts. The subscript affects only the atom that if follows. If no subscript is written, the atom is considered to have a subscript of 1. If a subscript follows parentheses, the subscript of each atom in the parentheses is multiplied by the subscript outside of the parentheses. Rewrite the problem after these calculations. Finally, we identify coefficients. Coefficients are distributed to all atoms in the chemical formula. The coefficient is multiplied by the subscripts. If no coefficient is present, it is assumed to be 1. Letâ€™s work some examples. Example 1:3H20 1. Identify the atoms. H and 0 Identify subscripts. 2. H subscript = 2 0 subscript = 1 3. Identify and distribute coefficients. Coefficient = 3 3xHsubscript= 3x2=6H 3xOsubscript= 3x1=30 coefficient H 0 Hydrogen Oxygen Total subscript 6 3 9 Example 2:4Co(N03)2 1. Identify the atoms. 4Co(NO3)2 Co, N, 0 Identify subscripts. Co subscript = 1 (NO3) subscript = 2 This subscript needs to be distributed because it is outside of parentheses! 2xNsubscript=2xl= 2 2xOsubscript=2x3 = 6 The problem can now be rewritten as CoN206 Identify and distribute coefficients. Coefficient = 4 4xCosubscript = 4x 1=4Co 4xNsubscript =4x2 = 8N 4xOsubscript =4x6 = 240 Name of Atom Cobalt Nitrogen Oxygen Type of Atom Co N 0 Total of All Atoms Total # of each atom 4 8 24 36 Name: Date: Period: Count each of the atoms, find the total number, and number for each element.
