Transition Metals (Periodic Table of the Elements)

Extra so than any of the opposite significant teams of components within the periodic desk, the transition metals have formed human background and feature been the workhorses of undefined. the invention of steel copper ended the Stone Age and ushered within the Bronze Age. Alloys of iron (especially metal) later took over, and the Iron Age changed the Bronze Age.

Figure 6 Ionic Bond, Sodium Chloride The sodium atom loses the one electron in its outer shell to the chlorine atom, which uses the electron to fill its outer shell. When this occurs, the sodium atom is left with a +1 charge and the chlorine atom a -1 charge. The ionic bond is formed as a result of the attraction of the two oppositely-charged particles. No single negatively-charged ion has a greater tendency to bond to a particular positively-charged ion than to any other ion. CH-01 Page 24 Rev.

They are separated from the table primarily to keep it from becoming too wide. Also, the elements within each of these two series show similar chemical properties. The number directly below each element is its atomic number, and the number above each element is its atomic weight. In several cases the atomic weights are in parentheses. This indicates that these elements have no stable isotopes; that is, they are radioactive. The value enclosed in parentheses and used for the atomic weight is the atomic mass number of the most stable known isotope, as indicated by the longest half-life.

Figure 7 shows the bonding that occurs in the methane molecule, which consists of four single covalent bonds between one carbon atom and four hydrogen atoms. Figure 7 Covalent Bond, Methane CH4 Two double covalent bonds result when carbon dioxide, which consists of one carbon atom and two oxygen atoms, is formed. Four pairs of electrons are shared by the carbon atom, two from each of the two oxygen atoms as shown in Figure 8. A combination of two electrons form a combination of lower energy than their energy when separated.
