Ground state – lowest-energy level available to an electron in an atom (n = 1). Excited state – any energy state above the ground state. Electron transition – movement of an electron between energy levels.**Show electron transitions (i.e., movement of electrons**between energy levels) = absorption of energy = emission of energy Energy-Level Diagrams**The Bohr Model (cont.)**• Strengths: • Accurately predicts energy needed to remove an electron from an atom (ionization) • Allowed scientists to begin using quantum theory to explain matter at atomic level • Limitations: • Does not account for spectra of multielectron atoms • Movement of electrons in atoms is less clearly defined than Bohr allowed**Chapter Outline**• 7.1 Light Waves • 7.2 Atomic Spectra • 7.3 Particles of Light and Quantum Theory • 7.4 The Hydrogen Spectrum and the Bohr Model • 7.5 Electron Waves • De Broglie Wavelengths • Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle • 7.6 Quantum Numbers and Electron Spin • 7.7 The Sizes and Shapes of Atomic Orbitals • 7.8 The Periodic Table and Filling the Orbitals of Multielectron Atoms • 7.9 Electron Configurations of Ions • 7.10 The Sizes of Atoms and Ions • 7.11 Ionization Energies • 7.12 Electron Affinities**Particles or Waves?**• De Broglie (1892–1987) • If electromagnetic radiation behaves as a particle, could a particle in motion, such as an electron, behave as a wave? • De Broglie’s equation: • = hc/E = hc/mc2 = h/mc (or = h/mv) • = de Broglie wavelength, m = mass of electron (in kg), v = velocity (in m/s), and h = Planck’s constant.**Linear Waves**• Nodes – regions of standing waves that experience no displacement. • Wavelength,λ= 2L • Harmonic frequencies: • L = nλ/2 • For n = 2½: no nodes, so no standing wave.**Electrons as Waves**• Electrons behave like circular waves oscillating around nucleus. • No defined stationary ends • Stable circular waves of circumference = n a) stable b) not stable**The Uncertainty Principle**• Wave theory vs. particle theory: • Each yield different answers for location of electron around nucleus. • Impossible to predict both location and velocity accurately. • Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle: • We cannot determine both the position and the momentum of an electron in an atom at the same time.**Chapter Outline**7.1 Light Waves 7.2 Atomic Spectra 7.3 Particles of Light and Quantum Theory 7.4 The Hydrogen Spectrum and the Bohr Model 7.5 Electron Waves 7.6 Quantum Numbers and Electron Spin 7.7 The Sizes and Shapes of Atomic Orbitals 7.8 The Periodic Table and Filling the Orbitals of Multielectron Atoms 7.9 Electron Configurations of Ions 7.10 The Sizes of Atoms and Ions 7.11 Ionization Energies 7.12 Electron Affinities**Electron Wave Equations**• Erwin Schrödinger (1925) • Developed mathematical equations to describe behavior of electron waves; became the basis of quantum mechanics. • Wave functions (ᴪ) • ᴪ describes the motion of electron waves as they vary with location and time. • ᴪ2 defines an orbital, or region of high probability for locating an electron.**Wave Numbers and Quantum Equations**• Mathematical solutions to wave equations (2) identified by unique combination of three integers • Quantum numbers: • Principle quantum number (n) indicates shell and relative size of orbital(s). n = 1, 2, 3,… • Angular momentum quantum number (ℓ)defines shape of orbital and subshell. ℓ = 0 →(n– 1) • Magnetic quantum number (mℓ) defines orientation of orbital around nucleus. mℓ = –ℓ → +ℓ**Practice: Electron Orbitals**- Collect and Organize: We know the value n = 4, and need to identify the letter designations of the subshells, and the total number of orbitals.
