Memorization?

Postby TanveerDhaliwal3G » Sun Dec 08, 2019 5:33 pm

Are we required to memorize the amphoteric oxides?

I think it is a good idea to know general atoms that make an oxide amphoteric such as Al and Be, but it’s not a bad idea to know the actual formulas too.

Memorizing the oxides (group 1 and 2 and all the nonmetals) and that great acids and bases are generally good. The ones that aren't in that list would be considered amphoteric. This is generally how I like to think of it.

It's always helpful to memorize but I don't think it's necessary

Memorizing the amphoteric oxides is really helpful!

Memorizing a couple examples can be very helpful to understanding the topic! If you know a couple, you can generally apply that knowledge to other parts of the periodic table.

Should we memorize the oxides themselves or just the other molecules without their oxygens?

Yes I would definitely recommend memorizing the amphoteric oxide compounds (oxides and the other molecules)

I think memorizing some can be helpful, especially if you want to understand the topic better!

I think it is very helpful to know them and have them memorized.
