Chemistry 1
  1. The Early Atmosphere
    1. formed by gasses produced by volcanoes
      1. contained large amounts of: carbon dioxide & water vapour
        1. Hardly any oxygen and small amounts of other gasses
          1. oceans
        2. the earth was very hot to start with.
          1. no oceans
            1. as the earth cooled the water vapour condenced to form liquid water
        3. The Atmosphere now
          1. Rocks and Their Formation
            1. Igneous Rocks
              1. Are formed when magma or lava solidifies.
                1. made of interlocking crystals
                  1. have small crystals if the liquid rock cooled quickly
                    1. have large crystals when rock cools slowly
                    2. Sedimentary Rocks
                      1. layers of sediment are compacted together over a long time being buried under more layers
                        1. it errodes earier than igenous or metaphorphic
                          1. made from rounded grains, may contain fossils
                            1. include chalk and limestone- natural forms of callcuim carbonate
                            2. Metamorphic Rocks
                              1. formed from existing rocks by heat or pressure
                                1. buried or from nearby magma
                                  1. causing new interlocking crystals to grow
                                  2. Marble (metamorphic rock) is formed from chalk or limestone
                                  3. Limestone and its uses
                                    1. Buildings
                                      1. base for roads or railwaus
                                        1. mostly made form calcuim carbonate (CaCo3)
                                          1. raw material used to make Glass, cement and concreate
                                            1. Limestone is heated when making cement and glass
                                              1. the heat decomposes the calcium carbonate in it to form calcium oxide (CaO) and carbon dioxide (CO2).
                                                1. in a process called THERMAL DECOMPOSITION Calcuim carbonate - calcium oxide + carbon dioxide
                                                  1. Thermal Decomosition
                                                    1. Metal Carbonates decompose when heated to form an oxide and carbon oxide.
                                                      1. some decompose more easily than others
                                        2. Reactions of calcium carbonates
                                          1. The Limestone Circle

                                                1. used to test for CO2. Turns milky.
                                                  1. CO2 + Ca(OH)2 = CaCo3 (s) + H2O. The solid is suspended in the water
                                                2. calcium carbonate is also known as lime stone CaCo3
                                                  1. calcium carbonate, oxide and hydroxide can all be used to nutralise acidic compounds.
                                                    1. some soils are acidic. Farmers use it on their fields to help the crops grow
                                                  2. Indigestion
                                                    1. our stomachs produce Hydrochloric acid
                                                      1. Kill bacteria in our food
                                                        1. help digestion
                                                        2. somethimes too much is produced. causing pain called indigestion
                                                          1. testing remideis
                                                            1. neutral liquids have a pH of 7. Acids less than 7
                                                              1. when an indigestion remedy is added to an acid. some of the acid is neutralise. pH increases


                                                                • to make the investigation a fair test, you must use the same volume of acid each time at the same consentration, and use one dose of each remedy. the remedy that produces the highest pH t the end has neutralised the most acid.
                                                            2. Neutralisation

                                                                                        3. Testing for Gasses
                                                                                          1. hydrogen:
                                                                                            1. hold a glowing alighted splint int the mouth of the test tube if the gas is hydrogen, it will explode with a squeaky pop
                                                                                            2. oxygen
                                                                                              1. hold a glowing splint into the mouth of the test tube. if the gas is oxygen it will relight.
                                                                                              2. chlorine
                                                                                                1. hold a peice of damp blue litmus paper in the test tube. if the gas is chlorine it will bleach the paper white
                                                                                              3. Ores
                                                                                                1. some metals are found as elements in the earths crust. the metal is not combined with other elements. these metals are very unreactive.
                                                                                                  1. extracting metals
                                                                                                    1. most metals are found as part of a compound in rocks. if the rock has enough metal compound to extract the rock is called an ore
                                                                                                    2. metals such as iron are exctracted their compounds by heating them with carbon. More reactive metals such as aluminium are extracted by melting the ore then carrying out electrolysis
                                                                                                    3. Oxidation and reduction.
                                                                                                      1. most metal oxides react with oxygen this causes corrosion. eg i ron + oxygen = iron oxide. the iron has been oxidised because it has gained oxygen.
                                                                                                        1. many metal ores contain oxides. the metal is extracted by removing the oxygen. aluminium oxide - aluminium + oxygen. The aluminium oxide has been reduced, the oxygen has been removed
                                                                                                        2. recycling metals
                                                                                                          1. when a metal object has reached the end of its life the metal can be melted down and made into something new. recycling has many beifits.
                                                                                                            1. recycling menas the earths supply of metals will last longer
                                                                                                              1. if recycled, we need fewer mines. this helps the enviroment- mining causes duast and noise pollution and damages the landscape.
                                                                                                                1. less land is needed for land fill
                                                                                                                  1. CO2 is emitted when fossil fuels are used to heat ores or generate electricity used in electrolysis. Far less CO2 is emitted from the recycling process as less energy is needed
