  • Summarize Bohr’s model of electron arrangement.
  • Provide a drawing that illustrates Bohr’s model.
  • What is the major problem with this model?
quantum mechanical model
Quantum Mechanical Model

Certain properties of matter can only be explained using a wave model.

Example - diffraction of electrons (electron microscope)

In 1924, Louis de Broglie developed an equation that predicts that all moving objects have wave-like behavior.

These wave properties are significant when particles are extremely small (such as electrons).

Like light, electrons exhibit a dual wave-particle nature.

Quantum mechanics describes the motions of subatomic particles and atoms as waves.

Later, Werner Heisenberg concluded that it is impossible to know exactly both the velocity and the position of an electron or any other particle at the same time. (Heisenberg uncertainty principle)

In 1926, Erwin Schrödinger devised a mathematical equation that treated electrons in atoms as waves.
  • The modern description of the electrons in atoms, the quantum mechanical model, comes from the mathematical solutions to the Schrödinger equation.
  • The quantum mechanical model determines the allowed energies an electron can have and how likely it is to find the electron in various locations around the nucleus.
  • These regions of space in which there is a high probability of finding an electron are known as orbitals or electron clouds.
A fan blade has the same probability of being anywhere in the blurry region, but you cannot tell its location at any instant.
  • The electron cloud of an atom can be compared to a spinning fan blade.
In the quantum mechanical model, the probability of finding an electron within a certain volume of space surrounding the nucleus can be represented as a fuzzy cloud. The cloud is more dense where the probability of finding the electron is high.
The total number of orbitals that exist in a given energy level or shell is equal to the energy level number squared.

1st energy level = 1 orbital

2nd energy level = 4oribitals

3rd energy level = 9orbitals

4th energy level = 16 orbitals

  • n is what we call the principal quantum number or energy level.

Orbitals can have different shapes.

  • Number of different shapes in each energy level is equal to the energy level number.
    • 1st energy level 1shape
    • 2nd energy level 2shapes
    • 3rd energy level 3shapes
    • 4th energy level 4 shapes

Different shaped orbitals occupy their own specific region within an energy level.

  • These are known as sublevels.
    • 1st energy level 1 sublevel
    • 2nd energy level 2 sublevels
    • 3rd energy level 3 sublevels
    • 4th energy level 4 sublevels
  • Letters are used to describe the shape of different orbitals.
  • This is the orbital quantum number (l).
  • l is any whole number smaller than n (including 0)

First energy level – only one type of orbital

  • “s” orbital l=0 (n=1-1)
  • Spherical shaped orbital
    • The first energy level composed of one sublevel – called the 1s sublevel.

Second energy level– 2 types of orbitals

  • s orbital
    • In what way is the s-orbital in the second energy similar to the s-orbital in the first energy level?
    • In what way is the s-orbital in the second energy different from the s-orbital in the first energy level?
  • The second type of orbital is called a p-orbital.
  • p-orbitals look like dumbbells (two lobes)
    • l=1 (n=2-1), or 0 (n=2-2)

The second energy level composed of two sublevels – 2s and the 2p.

  • Third energy level– three shapes – three sublevels
    • s-orbital – sphere
    • p-orbital – “dumbbell”
    • d-orbital – “four leaf clover” (four lobes)
      • l=2 (n=3-1), 1 (n=3-2), or 0 (n=3-3)
    • The third energy level composed of three sublevels – 3s, 3p, and the 3d.

Fourth energy level– four shapes – four sublevels

    • s-orbital
    • p-orbital
    • d-orbital
    • f-orbital – complex shape
      • l=3 (n=4-1), 2 (n=4-2), 1 (n=4-3), or 0 (n=4-4)
    • The fourth energy level composed of four sublevels – 4s, 4p, 4d, and the 4f.
magnetic quantum number m l
Magnetic Quantum number ml
  • It is possible to have more than one orbital within a sublevel.
  • These orbitals have the same shape and energy, but are oriented differently.
    • Ml= -l to +l
  • s sublevel– only contains a single s orbital (0)
  • p sublevel– composed of 3 different p-orbitals. (-1, 0, +1)
    • Each p-orbital has the same shape but different orientation in space.
    • px orbital, py orbital, and pz orbital

d sublevel- composed of 5 different d- orbitals (-2, -1, 0, +1, +2 )

  • f sublevel - composed of 7 different f-orbitals (-3, -2, -1, 0, +1, +2, +3)
  • When electrons are placed in a particular energy level, they “prefer” the orbitals in the order s, p, d, and then f.
  • Therefore, an s-orbital requires the least energy to occupy within an energy level.
spin number m s
Spin number ms
  • Electrons rotate and this creates a magnetic field
  • Electrons rotate either clockwise (ms = +1/2) or counter clockwise (ms= -1/2)
  • Each orbital can hold a maximum of two electrons.
  • If two electrons are in the same orbital then they spin in opposite directions.
  • Every electron within an atom is unique.

  • Use a Venn diagram to compare and contrast the Bohr model and the quantum mechanical model for electron arrangement.

  • How many sublevels compose the second energy level?
  • What are the shapes of the s,p,d, and f orbitals?
