Name: ________________________ Date: __________________ Period: __________NOVA: Hunting the ElementsPart 1: Basic ChemistryPeriodic Table of ElementsUse the periodic table below to help you answer some questions covered in the documentary.Gold - Au1.Write the number of subatomic particles in gold:a. Protons: 79b. Neutrons: 118c. Electrons: 792. Give one property of gold.shiny, malleable (soft), high density, electrically conductive3. How much gold is in one ton of the mined rock?1 ounce4. How much is each truckload of ore worth, once the gold is extracted?$720,0005. What determines how reactive an element is?ability to give up/take an electron (willingness to share electrons)6. What are the nobel metals?ruthenium, rhodium, palladium, silver, osmium, iridium, platinum, and gold7. Why is gold so heavy?high densityCopper - Cu8. Write the number of subatomic particles in copper:a. Protons: 29b. Neutrons: 35c. Electrons: 299. List three uses of copper.Electronics, plumbing, wire10. Give one property of copper.Conductive, AntibacterialThe Alloy11. What alloy does tin make when mixed with copper?Bronze (20% Tin, 80% Copper)12. How are atoms arranged in pure metals?Orderly Rows & Columns13. Why isn’t pure copper used for bells instead of bronze?Copper is too soft and dents easily. Bronze produces a longer lasting ring.Electron Microscope14. How much would you have to zoom in on a map of the United States to replicate the power of anelectron microscope?100,000,000x (see a bug crawling in the grass)15. Why is the microscope wrapped in acoustic blankets?to absorb & reflect sound waves16. What part of the atom is actually visible under the microscope?the outermost boundary of the atom17. What do protons determine about an element?determines the identity or type of element18. What is the number of protons called?atomic number19. Label the atomic number, symbol, and atomic mass of calcium below:
