Sample text

Pyrite, an iron ore composed of one atom of iron (ferrum in Latin) and one of sulfur, has the formula FeS, and its chemical name is ferrous sulfide. The name of compounds whose molecules contain three or more elements, usually including oxygen, ends in the suffix ate. Thus the chemical name for limestone, whose chemical formula is CaCO3, is calcium carbonate. That of green vitriol, also known as copperas, whose formula is FeSO4, is iron sulfate. The names and formulas of some chemical compounds related to archaeological studies are listed in Table 7.

Also, as the temperature and the amount of energy of any form of matter increases, the particles move faster and the order in their spatial arrangement decreases. When the temperature is lowered, all this is reversed. Any two samples of a particular mineral, whatever their source or place of origin, have the same basic composition and characteristic crystal structure; moreover, no two different minerals have identical chemical composition and crystal structure (see Textboxes 8 and 21). Quartz, for example, is a common and abundant mineral composed of silicon dioxide, a compound that occurs naturally not only as quartz but also in other crystal structures, known as polymorphs (polymorphs are minerals that have the same chemical composition but different crystal structure), some of which, listed in Table 23, have been used for a variety of purposes.

When an electric charge moves, it creates a magnetic field. If an electric charge oscillates (moves back and forth or up and down), its electric and magnetic fields change together, creating an electromagnetic wave. Different forms of electromagnetic radiation can be differentiated by their wavelengths, as listed in Table 6 and illustrated in Figure 7 (Bekefi and Barrett 1987). After inception, electromagnetic waves propagate through empty space (vacuum) or through matter, without displacing mass but displacing energy.
