Sample text

The next element in order is lithium (Z ˆ@ 3), the third electron in an outer L shell. With elements of increasing atomic number, the electrons are added to the L shell until it holds a maximum of 8, the surplus then occupying the M shell to a maximum of 18. The number of `valence' electrons (those in the outermost shell) determines the physical and chemical properties of the element. Those with completed outer shells are `stable'. Isotopes An element is often found to be a mixture of atoms with the same chemical property but different atomic masses: these are isotopes.

Cobalt has 3, and nickel 2. 6. In an iron crystal the magnetic axes of the atoms are aligned, unless upset by excessive thermal agitation. ) A single Fe crystal magnetises most easily along a cube edge of the structure. It does not exhibit spontaneous magnetisation like a permanent magnet, however, because a crystal is divided into a large number of domains in which the various magnetic directions of the atoms form closed paths. But if a crystal is exposed to an external applied magnetic field, (a) the electron spin axes remain initially unchanged, but those domains having axes in the favourable direction grow at the expense of the others (domain wall displacement); and (b) for higher field intensities the spin axes orientate into the direction of the applied field.

3 Liquids Liquids are classified according to whether they are nonelectrolytes (non-conducting) or electrolytes (conducting). In the former the substances in solution break up into electrically balanced groups, whereas in the latter the substances form ions, each a part of a single molecule with either a positive or a negative charge. Thus, common salt, NaCl, in a weak aqueous solution breaks up into sodium and chlorine ions. The sodium ion Na‡@ is a sodium atom less one electron; the chlorine ion Cl�@ is a chlorine atom with one electron more than normal.
