Periodic Table and Sodium

Sodium, one of many elements in the periodic table is being used in everyday life, it is also an essential element within your body. It is just another element, but one of the differences is that this element is something that most people consume every day. Sodium has played an important role in everyday life because of its uses in medicine, industry, and agriculture(Shriver). Sodium was discovered in 1807 by a man named Sir Humphrey Davy. He was well known for his discoveries of most alkali metals...

Sodium Intake

Sodium is a mineral that is present only in small quantities in most natural foods, but salt is added, often in large amounts, in food processing and by cooks to enhance flavor. Sodium is the predominant ion in extra cellular fluid. Sodium (Na) is the predominant cation in extra cellular fluid and its concentration is under tight homeostatic control. Excess dietary sodium is excreted in the urine. The kidney very efficiently reabsorbs the mineral when intakes are low or losses are excessive. Sodium...

Sodium Chloride

Sodium chloride, also known as salt, common salt, table salt, or halite, is an ionic compound with the formula NaCl. Sodium chloride is the salt most responsible for the salinity of the ocean and of the extracellular fluid of many multicellular organisms. As the major ingredient in edible salt, it is commonly used as a condiment and food preservative. [edit] Properties Thermal conductivity of pure NaCl as a function of temperature has a maximum of 2.03 W/(cm K) at 8 K and decreases to 0.069 at...

Sodium Chloride and Ml Density

water as well as the density was calculated. The same process was performed to calculate the density of an unknown substance. The third part Section C 5-25% of sodium chloride was prepared by the instructor. For each percent concentration of sodium chloride a 25 mL was prepared. Weighing the graduated cylinder before and after the sodium chloride was transferred the density were calculation. Pre- Laboratory Questions: 1. A metal sphere weighing 15.45 g is added to 21.27 mL of water in a graduated...

Decomposition of Sodium Chlorate Lab

Decomposition of Sodium Chlorate Mass, Moles, and the Chemical Equation Introduction: Sodium chlorate is used as a source of oxygen in emergency oxygen generators. So-called oxygen canisters or oxygen candles are found on airplanes, submarines, even the space station–anywhere where oxygen might be in short supply in case of an emergency. Sodium chlorate decomposes upon heating or in the presence of metals to give oxygen gas. What the chemical equation for the decomposition of sodium chlorate? ...

Chemical Reactions- Sodium Hydroxide

Chemical Reactions- Sodium Hydroxide A chemical reaction is a change where two or more substances are changed into a new substance. You can identify a chemical reaction by colour change, effervescence (bubbles), when light or heat given off, and the change is usually irreversible. There are 6 main types of chemical reactions- combustion (often called burning), synthesis, decomposition, neutralization, single replacement and double replacement. A combustion reaction is a reaction with oxygen, and...
