A proton of electromagnetic radiation
How can an electron go to a higher energy level?

Emission spectrum of hydrogen atoms
1. Lymon Series
2. Balmen Series
3. Paschen Series
Emission Spectrum of Hydrogen atoms
Consists of thre series of lines
Lymon Series
– Produced by Uv photons
– Due to transition of electrons from higher energy levels to n=1
Balmen series
– Produced by visible photons
– Due to the transitions of electrns from higher energy levels to n=2
Paschen Series
– Produced by i.n. photons
– Due to the transition of electrons from higher energy levels to n=3

A quantum of energy
In Bohr’s Model, what gets closer the higher you go?
Energy levels
In Bohr’s model, the elecgtron goes up the ladder and gets further away from the nuclus, what happens to the energy level?
Quantum Mechanical model
Change Cloud model
Quantum mechanical model
Named after an area of physics which uses advanced math to study atoms and subatomic particles
Who was one of the main people who developed the quantum mechanical model?
The quantum mechanical model tells us atoms have:
– Prinicipal energy levels
– Sublevels
– Orbitals
What is similar to Bohr’s energy levels?
Principal energy levels
1, 2, 3, etc. What are these numbers called that are associated with principal energy levels?
Principal quantum numbers; These numbers are represented by the letter m
Principal energy levels conatin?
One or more sublevels
Each principal energy level has:
– N sublevels
– N squared orbitals
– 2 N squared electrons when completely filled
Sublevels of a prinipal energy level have:
– Equal energies when the atom contains only 1 electron
– Differen energies when the atom has more than 1 electron
Are not the same as orbits
Region in space in which it is most likely to find an electron
Each orbital can have a maximum of?
2 electrons (Called an orbital pair)
Used to describe the placement of electrons in orbitals
Orbital diagrams
What is a half filled orbital represented by?
A box or circle containing a single arrow pointed either up or down
What is a filled orbital represented by?
A box or circle containing 2 arrows, one pointing up and the other pointing down
A shorthand notation describing the arrangement of electron in an atom
Electron configuration
Principle energy level
Type of orbital or sublevel
Orientation of orbital (optional)
Number of electrons in an electron configuration
Equals the total number of electrons in the atom
Superscript Total of the Electron configuration
Equals Z, the atomic number (total number of protons), when the atom is neutral
Superscript total of the Electron Configuration
How to simplify Electron configurations:
1. Do not use subscripts
2. Use mobile gas symbols
Electrons enter orbitals of lowest energy first
Aufbou principal
An atomic orbital may have at most 2 electrons and they must have opposite spins
Pauli exclusion principal
When electrons occupy orbitals of equal energy, one electron enters each orbital until all the orbitals contain one electron with the same spin
Hund’s Rule
Ground state Electron configuration Rules
1. Aufbou principle
2. Pauli exclusion principal
3. Hund’s rule
Filled sublevels are more stable than what?
partially filled sublevels
Half filled sublevels are not as stable as filled sublevels, but are more stable than?
Other configurations
The quantu mechanical model grew out of the study of what?
Who thought of light as consisting of particles?
