Solubility Product Principle

The solubility product constant expression for a slightly soluble compound is the product of the concentrations of the constituent ions, each raised to the power that corresponds to the number of ions in one formula unit.

Nonpolar Bond

Covalent bond in which electron density is symmetrically distributed.

Electrolysis

Process that occurs in electrolytic cells.

Cation

A positive ion, an atom or group of atoms that has lost one or more electrons.

Equivalence Point

The point at which chemically equivalent amounts of reactants have reacted.

Paramagnetism

Attraction toward a magnetic field, stronger than diamagnetism, but still weak compared to ferromagnetism.

Metal

An element below and to the left of the stepwise division (metalloids) in the upper right corner of the periodic table, about 80% of the known elements are metals.
