1.1 What is Chemistry?
       the study of matter and its transformations

Why Study Chemistry?
       learn fundamental physical models

       gain technical perspective on current events

       develop problem solving skills

       appreciate life's little mysteries

Most of the building materials, clothes, and medicines today are the result of chemistry

Branches of Chemistry
       organic –the study of the structures, synthesis, and reactions of carbon- compounds

       inorganic – the study of the properties and reactions of inorganic compounds

       physical - dealing with the physical properties of chemical substances

       biochemistry - study of the chemistry of living things

       analytical - analysis of material samples to gain an understanding of their chemical composition
        and structure.

1.2 Matter and Energy
Matter – anything that has mass and occupies space

Inertia – the tendency of a body to stay at rest or to continue to move at the same velocity,
unless acted on by an outside force. A tractor trailer has more inertia than a bicycle. A
bowling ball has more inertia than a tennis ball.

Mass and weight – used interchangeably, but there is a difference…

        Mass – a quantity of matter, mass is measured using a balance

        Weight - a measure of gravity's effect on something; use a scale to measure weight

Law of Conservation of Mass
        Matter can neither be created nor destroyed in chemical or physical changes.

        Example – sodium metal + chlorine gas ---> table salt, an edible crystal

Everything that you see or sense is either matter or the interactions of energy and matter.
True or False?
Ex: a book – a chunk of matter – hold it up – potential energy – drop it – kinetic energy

Energy – the ability to cause change or the ability to do work. (two types)

        Kinetic –the energy of motion

                         Ex. baseball in flight, car rolling down a street

        Potential – stored energy waiting to be released                      Car transparency
                                                                               (figure 1-9)
                         Ex: gasoline, water behind a dam

Law of conservation of energy –
        Energy can change forms, but it cannot be created or destroyed by ordinary
         chemical or physical changes

Plasma – A highly ionized gas. The fourth state of matter (it does matter). 99% of all matter
in the universe is in a plasma state. Lightning, neon lights and fire are natural examples of
plasma on Earth.

Plasma tv’s? What are they all about?
Plasma in flat-panel display technology that ignites small pockets of gas to light
phosphors. Each plasma panel contains thousands of tiny tubes filled with ionized gas that,
when excited by electricity, glow in different colors and intensities to create an image.

Properties and Changes of Matter
Properties – characteristics that enable us to distinguish one kind of matter from another
       describe materials by listing their properties

Chemical properties vs. physical properties
       Measurement of a chemical property involves a chemical change.

       Ex: determining the flammability of gasoline involves burning it, producing CO 2 and
        H2O; wood burning, rusting iron, tarnishing silver, leaves changing colors, baking a

       Measurement of a physical property may change the arrangement but not the
        structure of the molecules of a material.

       Ex: density, color, boiling point, volume, temperature, and mass.

Intensive properties vs. extensive properties

       Extensive properties change when sample size changes; intensive properties don't.

Chemical change vs. physical change
       A chemical change occurs when a substance is converted into a different

       Ex. chemical change: sodium metal + chlorine nonmetal --> table salt (crystal,
        white, edible)

       Ex. physical change: cutting paper, chopping wood, freezing water

Signs of a chemical change
       evolution of heat and light

       production of a gas

       formation of a precipitate

Side note: the Law of Definite Composition states that when a compound breaks down, it always
gives the same proportion of its constituent elements (Joseph Proust – 1799)

Ex – sugar (C 6H12O6) always consists of 42.1% C, 6.5 % H, 51.4 % O
