Students Will Review:
This chapter summarizes the material students need to know about allotropy and common allotropes for a standard chemistry course. You'll study the allotropes of the following elements:
1. Allotropes of Phosphorus: Forms, Uses & Examples
You might have heard of the element phosphorous before. But did you know it exists in different forms that can each be used for a specific purpose? Learn more about these different forms and how they are used in everyday life.
2. What are the Allotropes of Oxygen? - Formulas & Examples
Allotropes are different forms of the same element and several elements have allotropes. In this lesson, we will focus on allotropes of oxygen, which are dioxygen, ozone, and tetraoxygen.
3. Titanium Allotropes: Definition & Examples
Titanium is a strong and lightweight element. It has two main allotropes, which each have specific properties. In this lesson we will learn about these allotropes.
4. Allotropes of Hydrogen: List, Structure & Occurrence
There are two versions or allotropes of hydrogen. In this lesson, we will list these allotropes, draw their structures and discuss their relative abundances in nature.
5. Allotropes of Iron: Types, Density, Uses & Facts
Iron is used in a variety of materials from kitchen tools to buildings. In this lesson, we will learn about the different allotropes of iron and how they are each used.
