The Atom

Lecture 1


Atomic structure its history

Atomic Structure & Its History

  • Much of what we know aboutatomic structuretoday is the result of

    indirect observationof atoms and the particles of which they are composed


Atomic structure its history1

Atomic Structure & Its History

  • Over 2,300 years ago, the Greek philosopher Democritus was the first to propose that matter was composed of atoms


Atomic structure its history2

Atomic Structure & Its History

  • Democritus believed that -

  • everything is composed of "atoms", which are physically, but not geometrically, indivisible

  • that between atoms, there lies empty space

  • that atoms are indestructible

  • that atoms have always been, and always will be, in motion

  • that there are an infinite number of atoms, and kinds of atoms, which differ in shape, and size


Atomic structure its history3

Atomic Structure & Its History

  • He was correct in one part:

  • the forces that hold together the nucleus of an atom are the most powerful in the universe, making atoms indivisible in all but extremely powerful reactions


Atomic structure its history4

Atomic Structure & Its History

  • Those reactions are called fission

  • Fission is when the nucleus of an atom is split apart

  • When this occurs tremendous energy is released


Atomic structure its history5

Atomic Structure & Its History

  • Nuclear weapons are an example of this incredible force

  • Direct observation of atomic structure is all but impossible

  • Scientists have relied on models to represent the structure of atoms


The dalton model 1803

The Dalton Model: 1803

  • English chemist John Dalton developed the first atomic model in 1803

  • He saw atoms as indestructible, indivisible and spherical


The dalton model 18031

The Dalton Model: 1803

  • His theories were based on what had been observed in chemical reactions and was widely accepted until the development of the Crooks tube


The crooks tube

The Crooks Tube

  • In 1897, English scientist JJ Thomson noticed that a stream of negatively charged particles would flow through a special tube, called a Crooks tube, no matter what gas was used

  • Thomson theorized that negatively charged particles were present in the atoms of all elements


The crooks tube1

The Crooks Tube

  • His final theory was that atoms were made up of positively and negatively charged particles evenly distributed and that the atom was a solid mass

  • He is credited with the identification and discovery of the electron

The rutherford model 1909

The Rutherford Model: 1909

  • British physicist Lord Rutherford’s experiments in 1909 indicated that atoms were

    largely empty space

The bohr model

The Bohr Model

  • In 1913, Danish scientist Neils Bohr developed a model of the atom that proposed there existed certain definite orbitsin which electrons traveled

  • Bohr proposed 7 different levels, or distances that occur around the nucleus


The bohr model1

The Bohr Model

  • Bohr hypothesized that the greater the radius of the level, the greater the energy of the electrons at that level


The bohr model2

The Bohr Model

  • His models suggested that in an atom’s normal state, all electrons are in the lowest energy levels, and because of this cannot move to a lower level

  • The atom is stableand said to be at its ground level state

The excited state

The Excited State

  • If energy is added to the atom by heat or electrical energy,the absorbed energy can cause one or more of the electrons within the atom to move to ahigher energy level

  • When this happens the atoms are said to be in an excited state


The excited state1

The Excited State

  • The atom at the excited state is unstable and makes efforts to return to ground level state

  • As the electrons return to this level they release energy

  • The energy given off exactly equals the amount absorbed when the electrons moved to the higher energy levels


The modern model of the atom

The Modern Model of the Atom

Charge Cloud Model:

  • this shows electrons as being part of a diffused cloud of varying densities
