qIntroductory Chemistry, q Third Edition helps readers master the quantitative skills and conceptual understanding they need to gain a deep understanding of chemistry. Unlike other books on the market that emphasize rote memory of problem-solving algorithms, qIntroductory Chemistryq takes a conceptual approach with the idea that focusing on the concepts behind chemical equations helps readers become more proficient problem solvers. What Is Chemistry?, The Numerical Side of Chemistry, The Evolution of Atomic Theory, The Modern Model of the Atom 1, Chemical Bonding and Nomenclature, The Shape of Molecules, Chemical Reactions, Stoichiometry and the Mole, The Transfer of Electrons from One Atom to Another in a Chemical Reaction Intermolecular Forces and the Phases of Matter, What If There Were No Intermolecular Forces?, The Ideal Gas Solutions, When Reactants Turn into Products, Chemical Equilibrium, Electrolytes, Acids, and Bases. For all readers interested in introductory chemistry.n = 3 n = 2 n = 1 The octet rule works well for many of the atoms found in biological and organic molecules (in particular, C, H, and N), and it is used to predict ... Like chlorine, sodium could do this by picking up more electrons, but each atom would have to gain seven electrons. ... An easier way for sodium to get its octet is for it to lose its single valence electron from the n = 3 shell, leaving this shell empty.
