Periodic Table Test THIS WEDNESDAY

Your Periodic Table Unit Test is this Wednesday, December 18. The following material will be on your test:

Standards:

  • Explain how properties of elements and the location of elements on the periodic table are related.
  • Explain how elements are arranged within the periodic table (valence electrons, atomic size, electronegativity, ionization energy)

Vocabulary:

  • Metal
  • Nonmetal
  • Metalloid
  • Alkali metal
  • Alkaline earth metal
  • Transition metal
  • Halogen
  • Noble gas
  • Conductivity
  • Malleable
  • Ductile
  • Brittle
  • Melting point
  • Physical property
  • Valence electron
  • Lewis dot diagram
  • Atomic radius
  • Electronegativity
  • Ionization energy
  • Shielding electron
  • Effective nuclear charge

NEED TO KNOW:

  • Properties of metals, nonmetals, and metalloids
  • Properties of the 5 periodic families
  • Valence electrons, charge, and Lewis dot diagrams for elements in groups 1-2 and 13-18
  • Whether atoms will gain or lose electrons depending on their valence electrons
  • Explain why each periodic trend occurs in words and draw the trend on a periodic table
  • Put elements in order based on their atomic radius, electronegativity, or ionization energy
  • Calculate the number of shielding electrons and effective nuclear charge of an atom
  • Be able to answer the following questions:
    • How are properties of elements and the location of elements on the periodic table related? Use at least 3 examples of properties to support your claim.
    • Why do atomic radius, electronegativity, and ionization energy increase/decrease down a group?
    • Why do atomic radius, electronegativity, and ionization energy increase/decrease across a period?
