Twelve compounds are named and each of their chemical formulas are printed on individual cards. Chemistry pupils place each beneath an Ionic or Molecular card, depending on which type of compound is represented.
For this compounds activity, students name ionic and molecular compounds given their formulas. They also write the formulas for molecular and ionic compounds given their names.
Binary compounds are explained with the periodic table, atomic charges, and examples. Viewers are taught to name binary compounds and then are presented with a chart of cations and ions. Finally, they see a few photos of forms of silicon...
A few basic facts about lattice energy are listed at the top of the page, including the formula used for calculations. Two charts follow: one for lattice energy and another for ion sizes. There is no work to do on this handout, but it...
In this nomenclature worksheet, students are given the formulas for ionic compounds, molecular compounds and inorganic acids and they write their names. They also write the formulas given the names of ionic compounds, molecular compounds...
In this naming molecular compounds instructional activity, students are given 8 formulas of molecular compounds and they write the names for each. Students are then given 8 names of molecular compounds and they write the formula for each.
In this bonding worksheet, students read about the types of bonds that hold compounds together. They are given fifteen common materials and they identify the types of bonds that hold each together.
In this formula mass worksheet, high schoolers read about molecular substances and their formula masses. They find the formula masses for six compounds using the atomic masses of its elements.
In this molecular compounds worksheet, students write the prefixes for the numbers one through ten. They name thirty compounds given their formulas. They write the formulas for twenty six compounds given their names.
In this compounds worksheet, students read about the rules for naming inorganic compounds. Then students complete 2 graphic organizers by filling in the compound name, formula, and anion name.
In this molecules worksheet, students research a substance that is made up of molecules with two or more elements. Students name the substance, write a short description of the substance, and draw a picture that illustrates the substance.
