Valence Electrons

Outermost electrons of atoms, usually those involved in bonding.

Mass

A measure of the amount of matter in an object. Mass is usually measured in grams or kilograms.

Ternary Acid

A ternary compound containing H, O, and another element, often a nonmetal.

Ionic Bonding

Chemical bonding resulting from the transfer of one or more electrons from one atom or a group of atoms to another.

Oxidation Numbers

Arbitrary numbers that can be used as mechanical aids in writing formulas and balancing equations, for single- atom ions they correspond to the charge on the ion, more electronegative atoms are assigned negative oxidation numbers (also called Oxidation states).

Active Metal

Metal with low ionization energy that loses electrons readily to form cations.

Isomers

Viscosity

Resistance offered by the molecules of a liquid to flow is termed as viscosity.
