Chemistry - a branch of science w/c deals

with the study of:

A. Composition and properties of
B. Changes that matter undergoes.
C. Energy wich accompany these
D. Laws and principles which govern
these changes.
1. It touches all human interest.
2. It serves as an illustration of what
science is.
3. It develops scientific mind.
Division of Chemistry
1. General Chemistry - general survey of
the entire field of chemistry with
particular emphasis placed on the
fundamental concepts and elementary
2. Inorganic Chemistry - concerned with
the preparation and properties of the
elements and their compounds. Carbon
compounds are not included.
3. Organic Chemistry - study of carbon
and its compound.
4. Analytical Chemistry - concerned with
the detection and determination od
substances and their constituents.
A. Qualitative Chemistry - deals with
the analysis of the compound part.
B. Quantitative Chemistry - deals
with the determination of the amount of
component parts.
5. Physical or Theoretical Chemistry concerned with the laws and
generalizations underlying chemical
changes wherever these laws are
expressed mathematically.
6. Biochemistry - study of compounds and
chemical changes that are brought about
by living processes.
7. Radiochemistry or Nuclear Chemistry study of changes that take place in atomic
nuclei when bombarded with suitable

Scientific Method
- rational ecplanation of facts and
laws designed to suggest why or how
something happen as it does.
- logical approach to the solution of
any problem w/c lends itself to
1. Recognizing a phenomenon and stating
it as a problem.
2. Gathering data.
3. Form a hypothesis.
4. Theory
5. Stating generalization
Matter - is anything that occupies space
and has mass.
1. Physical - characteristics w/c
describe a physical appearance
- could be perceived by our
- they can be observed
without causing any change in
chemical composition
2. Chemical - characteristics which
describe chemical behavior
- describe the tendency
of a substance to undergo
chemical change alone or by
interaction with other
substance and in so doing
form different materials.
A. Elements - simplest from of matter
- made up of only one type of
- cannot be broken down into
simpler forms by ordinary
chemical and physical means or

* Metals - conductors of electricity
- have luster
* Non-metals
- non conductors of
- not shiny
* Metalloids or Amphoretic Elements
- exhibit properties that are
intermediate between
* Inert or Noble or Rare Gases
- most chemically inactive
- unreactive
- stable elements
B. Compounds
- made up of 2 or more elements
that are chemically combined
- could be decomposed by simple
chemical means into 2 or more
different substances
- abide to the law of definite
- do not retain their properties
1. Acids
- sour in taste
- yield hydrogen ion (H^+) in
water solution
- turn blue litmus paper to
2. Bases
- bitter taste
- yield hydroxide (OH) in
water solution
- turn red litmus paper to
- slippery to touch
3. Salts
- made up of positive ion
other than H^+ a negative ion
other than OH
C. Mixtures
- made up of 2 or more elements
or compounds not chemically
- should be decomposed or

broken down or separated by physical

or mechanical processes such as
evaporation, decantation, distillation,
- do not abide to the Law of
Definite Proportion
- each component retain its own
characteristics or properties
A. Homogeneous Mixture
- also called a solution
- uniform in appearance
- single me phase
- particle size <10^7 cm
B. Heterogeneous Mixture
- also called SUSPENSION
- not uniform in appearance
- distinct phases
- composition and physical vary
from one part of a mixture to another
1. Caustic Soda (NaOH) - used to removes
fats and grease from clog drains.
2. Hypochlorous Acid (HClO) disinfectant for floors and wards in the
3. Bicarbonate (HCO3) - it is an extra
cellular negative ion in the body.
4. Pentose (C5H10O5) - simple sugar
5. Bauric Acid (H3BO3) - a gemmicide
6. Sodium Citrate (Na3C6H5O7) - prevent
clotting of blood.
7. Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3) - it is an
8. Sodium Sulfate (Na2SO4) - a cathartic clean out large intestines.
9. Ammonium Chloride (NH4Cl) - a
dioretic - urine.
10. Potassium Iodite (KI) - an expectorant.
11. Phosphate (PO4) - formation of bone.
12. Magnesium Hydroxide Mg(OH2)- it is
a laxative
13. Ferrous Sulfate Fe(SO4) - treatment of
14. Adenocine Triphosphate

15. Hydrogen Peroxide H2O2 disinfectant of wounds.
A. Physical
- only the physical condition or
property is altered
- chemical composition is not altered
- no formation of a new substance
B. Chemical
- chemical composition is altered
- involves disappearance of the
original substance and formation of a new
- formation of bubbles
- insuluble solid or precipitate
- moisture or water droplets
C. Nuclear Change
- results in a change of identity of the
atom and production of great amount of
ENERGY - the ability or capacity to
do work
1. Potential - possessed by a body by
virtue of its position.
2. Kinetic - possessed by a body by virtue
of its motion.

1. Exothermic - energy is given off by a

body to its surroundings.
2. Endothermic - energy is absorbed by a
body from its surrounding.
Laws Governing Matter and Energy
1. Law of Conservation of Mass - mass
can either be created nor destroyed in any
transformation of matter.
2. Law of Conservation of Energy energy can either be created nor destroyed
in any transformation of matter.
3. Law of Definite Composition - a pure
compound is composed of the same
elements combined in a definite
proportion by weight.
4. Law of Multiple Proportion - when 2
elements combine to form more than one
compound, the different weights of one
that contains with a fixed weight of the
other are in the ratio.
Language of Chemistry

writing and naming of compounds

element by Alchemists.
