Chemical Reactivity Reflection

A.     3 things that I have learnt this unit are that everything around us is made of atoms but atoms are made of three particles Protons, Neutrons and Electrons. I also learned how find out information on the periodic table about the element like how many protons a single element atom is. He last thin I learnt is that the protons and electrons of a atom have to be the same or the atom will be unstable.

B.     3 things that I will always remember are the construction of atoms and how each Atom is made out of Protons Neutrons and Electrons, How to read information of the periodic table such as how many protons there are and the weight of a single atom and how many reaction can take place when to elements mix together.

C.     My favorite thing we did in this unit was when we had a look at the reaction between hydrochloric acid and magnesium and how they produce a flammable substance that can be popped with heat.

D.    I am curious about what kind of reactions take place with different substances but I am also curious about how the atoms are constructed in an element at the bottom of the periodic table like plutonium.
