Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms.
Plan and conduct an investigation to gather evidence to compare the structure of substances at the bulk scale to infer the strength of electrical forces between particles.
Develop and use models to explain the differences between chemical compounds using patterns as a method for identification.
Use mathematics and computational thinking to apply Coulomb’s law to determine scale, proportion, and quantity of forces between particles.
Use mathematical representations to quantify matter through the analysis of patterns in chemical compounds.
