21

Electron configuration of an atom =

distribution of electrons among orbitals

New cards

22

Explain how electrons move to higher and lower energy levels

an electron absorbs a certain quanta of energy → moves into a certain higher energy level

an electron loses certain quanta of energy and emits light → moves down energy levels

New cards

23

orbital where the electron is located (its sublevel)

New cards

24

Bohr model =

Quantum mechanic model/electron cloud model =

Electrons have

**orbits**(clear, determined paths) dictated by**quanta**Treats the election as a

**wave**: Electrons have**orbitals**— where the electron is most likely to be based on its**principal****energy level**— but can vary in shape by**sublevels**(s, p, d, etc)

New cards

25

Light emitted from an electron moving energy down energy levels is directly proportional to _______

the energy change of the electron

New cards

26

3 rules for elec configs.

Aufbau: Electrons occupy lowest levels first (Aufbau, like ‘A’ B C)

Pauli Exclusion:: Orbitals can hold at most 2 electrons, only if they spin in opposite directions (Pauli, like “pair”)

Hund’s: Single electrons fill up as many orbitals in a level as possible before doubling up

New cards

27

How to do elec configs? (not noble gas notation

ex) Find the electron configuration of KNO₃ (first compound of data page of L

Find your element on the table (K = Potassium)

Go through all the elements before your element and write down their orbital + amnt of elecs in that orbital, aka, how many elements in that group

a: **1s²+2s²+2p^6+3s²+3p^6+4s^1**

New cards

28

How to do noble gas notation?

ex) Find the electron configuration of KNO₃ (first compound of data page of L

Find your element on the table (K = Potassium)

Go up one row and all the way to column 18 to find your noble gas and box it [Ar]

After your noble gas, continue the configuration until you reach your element

continue config by adding each orbital for each element (K, after Ar, is s1) (you can know what sublevel is each element based on where it is on the periodic table)

a: **[Ar] 4s1**
