Because 3SO4–2 is on the left, make 3SO4–2 on the right by using coefficient 3 for CaSO4. Quantitative Calculations or Stoichiometry in Chemical Reactions Equations also have quantitative significance. The quantitative relationship of reactants and their products is known as stoichiometry. We can calculate amounts of reactants required to produce any desired amount of a product by using the mass ratio of these substances from their formula weights. Let us return to the equation in the previous example where calcium hydroxide reacts with calcium bicarbonate to produce calcium carbonate and water.

8. What is the name for atoms with the same atomic number, but different mass number? 9. Define valence shell and valence electrons. book Page 25 Monday, February 18, 2002 5:03 PM 4 Compounds E very substance in the world is either an element, a compound, or a mixture of various compounds and elements. A compound is formed of two or more elements, which are always present in the same definite proportion. 11 percent hydrogen by weight. Law of definite composition: The composition of a chemical compound always contains the same proportions, or a chemical compound has a definite composition by weight.

The group number indicates the number of electrons in the outermost shell. Group IA has one electron, IIA two electrons, IIIA three electrons . . and VIIIA eight electrons in their outermost shells. Helium, in group VIIIA, is the only element with two electrons, as it has only a K shell, which is in the stable state with two electrons. In the middle of the table, there are 30 elements, known as transition elements. They have electrons in the d sublevels of the third, fourth, and fifth shells. The lower two rows of 14 elements each, known as rare earth elements, have electrons in the f sublevels of the fourth and fifth shells.
