Unit 10 atomic theory and periodicity

Unit 10: Atomic Theory and Periodicity

Section 1: Structure of the Atom


Structure of the atom

Structure of the Atom

  • The organization of the periodic table is based on the structure of the atom for each element

  • The 20th century is when most discoveries about the structure of atoms took place

    • The atom was first viewed as a small, solid unit

    • Rutherford found that the atom has a dense, positive center (nucleus) that is quite small compared to the entire atom

    • Thompson found the electron to be a negatively charged particle of almost no mass

    • Urey found that neutrons (neutral charged particles) resided in the nucleus

    • Einstein’s experiments with color and light led to the understanding of electron behavior


Wavelength

Wavelength

  • The distance between similar parts of the curve, between crests (tops) or between troughs (bottoms) of adjacent waves

  • Frequency: the number of waves that pass an observation point per second


Electromagnetic spectrum

Electromagnetic Spectrum

  • Has both electrical and magnetic properties

  • Is comprised of AC power, radio waves, microwaves, infrared radiation, visible light, ultraviolet radiation, X rays, and gamma rays

    • The lists above is in order

      of decreasing wavelength

      • The smaller the wavelength,

        the higher the frequency

        and energy


Visible light

Visible Light

  • Part of the electromagnetic spectrum that we are able to see

  • Made up of colors: ROYGBIV

    • Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet

    • The array of colors is due to slight variations in the wavelengths

      • Red has the longest wavelength and violet has the shortest wavelength


Light and the structure of the atom

Light and the Structure of the Atom

  • Different colors of fireworks are due to the actions of electrons within their compounds when ignited

    • Before fireworks are set off, the electrons are in ground state

      • Ground state: the normal location for electrons within the atom

  • Once the fireworks are ignited, some of the electrons acquire enough energy to go to the excited state

    • Excited state: some electrons jump towards the outermost orbital within the atom


Light and the structure of the atom2

Light and the Structure of the Atom

  • Electrons cannot stay at the elevated position, so they fall back to their normal position

    • Just like a jumper on a trampoline, the jumper falls back down to the starting point

  • When electrons move to the

    excited state they absorb

    energy, and when they move

    back to ground state they give

    off energy


Light and the structure of the atom3

Light and the Structure of the Atom

  • Each color in the visible light spectrum has a certain energy level

  • When electrons emit energy (go from excited state to ground state), they also emit a color

    • The color depends on the energy level being emitted


Niels bohr

Niels Bohr

  • Because excited atoms give off specific colors and not a rainbow of colors, he understood that electrons are allowed in only certain locations within the atom, called energy levels

  • Each element behaves in its own unique way when excited by heat or electricity, and produces a very specific pattern of lines of color, called the atomic spectrum

    • This unique chemical fingerprint is because each element has a different number of electrons, different sized nucleus that attracts the electrons back to ground state, and different distances from the nucleus to the outer electrons
