Atomic Structure and Atomic Notations


Atomic structure and atomic notations

  • Decide whether each of the following statements concerning atoms is true or false.

    • All of the particles in the nucleus of an atom are charged.

    • The atom is best described as a uniform sphere of matter in which electrons are embedded.

    • The mass of the nucleus is only a very small fraction of the mass of the entire atom.

    • The size of the nucleus is only a very small fraction of the total size of the atom.

    • The number of neutrons in an atom must equal the number of electrons.


Modern atomic theory

Modern Atomic Theory

Atom – smallest unit of an element that retains the properties of that element.

  • Atoms are composed of two regions and three subatomic particles.

    • Nucleus- positively charged region located at the center of the atom.


Atomic structure and atomic notations

Very small compared to the total size of the atom. (marble = size of nucleus / football field = size of atom)

Composed of two particles

i. Proton= Positive particle

ii. Neutron = Neutral particle

Almost all mass is located in nucleus (extremely dense)

Nucleus held together by strong nuclear forces.


Atomic structure and atomic notations

  • b) Electron Cloud –

    • Mostly empty space

    • Gives atom its size

    • Contains tiny negatively charged particles called electrons.

  • Atoms are very small in size.

    • So small use picometers (1x10-12m)

    • Atomic radii range from 40 to 270 pm


  • Atomic structure and atomic notations

    3) Atoms have very small masses.

    • Example: mass of oxygen atom 2.6 x 10-23g.

    • atomic mass unit (amu)

    • 1 amu = 1.66 x 10-27g = 1/12 the mass of a carbon-12 atom.

    • atoms have masses from 1-300 amu’s


    Comparison of subatomic particles

    4) Atoms are electrically neutral.

    • Although an atom contains charged particles, the atom overall is neutral.

    • A proton and an electron have the same amount of charge just opposite in sign.

    • Number of protons = number of electrons.


    Atomic number and mass number

    Atomic Number and Mass Number

    Atomic Number (Z) –

    • number of protons in the nucleus of atom of a particular element.

    • whole number listed on the periodic table.

      Mass Number (A) –

    • number of protons and neutrons in nucleus of an atom.

    • do not confuse with decimal number listed on periodic table.


    Atomic structure and atomic notations

    There are two different ways to represent atoms.

    Symbol Notation –


    Atomic structure and atomic notations

    • Consists of name of element and a number.

      • Example: chlorine – 37

    • Number after name is the mass number.

    • Sample Problem:

      Determine the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons for a bromine-80 atom.
