blurry region

principle quantum numbers

- n = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6…

- Each principle energy level has sublevels that correspond to different cloud shapes, called _______________________

Represents: energy levels

Values: any integer ≥ 1

atomic orbitals

spherical

4 Different Atomic Orbitals

- S orbital = _____________ (1)
- P orbitals = __________________ (3)
3. D orbitals = ____________________ (5)

4. F orbitals = ___________________ (7)

dumbbells

Complex shapes

Orbitals

get bigger

because they

can hold more

electrons

- Notice that n = # of sublevels and # of different shapes
- The order of the shapes moves from lowest energy to highest energy (s, p, d, f…)

- Example: n = 2; sublevel shapes = s & p
- Name the shape(s) be for the following:
- n = 1
- n = 3
- n = 4

s

s, p, d

s, p , d, f

- Notice the number of orbitals per shape
- s = 1- d = 5
- p = 3- f = 7

- If n = 3, then we will have 3 different shapes (s, p & d)
- The s shape has 1 orbital available
- The p shape has 3 orbitals available
- And, the d shape has 5 orbitals available
- How many orbitals does the 3rd energy level have?

It has 9 orbitals

- What is the relationship between n = 3 and 9 available orbitals?
- 9 = 32
- So, we can say that n2 = # of orbitals available

- We represent each orbital by listing the energy level followed by the orbital shape
1s

n = 1, orbital shape = sphere

3d

n = 3, orbital shape = clover

- How many orbitals are in the 3s sublevel?
- Well, we know that n = 3 and that the orbital shape = s
- The 3rd energy level can have 9 total orbitals between s, p, & d…but we are only looking the s orbital
There is only 1 orbital in the 3s sublevel

- The 3rd energy level can have 9 total orbitals between s, p, & d…but we are only looking the s orbital

- Well, we know that n = 3 and that the orbital shape = s
- Each orbital available can hold 2 electrons
- s = 1 orbital = 2 electrons
- p = 3 orbitals = 6 electrons
- d = 5 orbitals = 10 electrons
- f = 7 orbitals = 14 electrons

- So, when n = 4, we can have…
- s = 1 orbital = 2 electrons
- p = 3 orbitals = 6 electrons
- d = 5 orbitals = 10 electrons
- f = 7 orbitals = 14 electrons
32 total electrons = 2n2

- # of electrons at each main level = 2n2
n = 1_____ electrons

n = 2_____ electrons

n = 3_____ electrons

n = 4_____ electrons
