Chapter 7Atomic Structure and Periodicity • Electromagnetic Radiation Radiant energy that exhibits wavelength-like behavior and travels through space at the speed of light in a vacuum. • Example: The sun light, energy used in microwave oven, the x-rays used by doctors.
Waves Waves have 3 primary characteristics: 1. Wavelength (): distance between two consecutive peaks in a wave. 2. Frequency (): number of waves (cycles) per second that pass a given point in space. 3. Speed: speed of light is 2.9979 108 m/s. We will use 3.00 x108 m/s.
Wavelength and frequency can be interconverted and they have an inverse relationship = c/ = frequency (s1) = wavelength (m) c = speed of light (m s1) • Wavelength is also given in nm (1 nm = 10-9 m) and Angstroms (Å) (1 Å = 10-10 m). • The frequency value of s1 or 1/s is also called “hertz (Hz)” like KHz on the radio.
Example: When green light is emitted from an oxygen atom it has a wavelength of 558 nm. What is the frequency? We know, = c/ where, c = speed of light = 3.00 x 108m/s = wavelength = 558 nm (need to convert in m)
Planck’s Constant • Transfer of energy is quantized, and can only occur in discrete units, called quanta. E = change in energy, in J h = Planck’s constant, 6.626 1034 J s = frequency, in s1 = wavelength, in m
Example: The Blue color in fireworks is often achieved by heating copper (I) chloride (CuCl) to about 1200oC. Then the compound emits blue light having a wavelength of 450 nm. What is the increment of energy (the quantum) that is emitted at 4.50 x 102 nm by CuCl? The quantum of energy can be calculate from the equation E = h The frequency for this case can be calculated as follows: So, E = h = (6.626 x 10-34J.s)(6.66 x 1014 s-1) = 4.41 x 10-19J A sample of CuCl emitting light at 450 nm can only lose energy in increments of 4.41 x 10-19J, the size of the quantum in this case.
Energy and Mass • According to Einstein theory of relativity- Energy has mass; Einstein equation, E = mc2 where, E = energy, m = mass c = speed of light • After rearrangement of the equation, Now we can calculate the mass associated with a given quantity of energy
Einstein suggested that electromagnetic radiation can be viewed as a stream of “particles” called photons. The energy of each photon is given by, • It was Einstein who realized that light could not be explained completely as waves but had to have particle properties. This is called the dual nature of light.
Wavelength and Mass • de Broglie thought if waves like light could have particle properties that particles like electrons could have wave properties. We have, de Broglie’s equation, = wavelength (m); m = mass (kg); = velocity (m/s) h = Planck’s constant, 6.626 1034 J s = kg m2 s1 • This equation allows us to calculate the wavelength of a particle. Matter exhibits both particulate and wave properties.
Example: Compare the wavelength for an electron (mass = 9.11 x 10-31 kg) traveling at a speed of 1.0 x 107 m/s with that for a ball (mass = 0.10 kg) traveling at 35 m/s. We use the equation = h/m, where h = 6.626 1034 J.s or 6.626 1034 kg m2 /s since, 1 J = 1 kg. m2 /s2 For the electron, For the ball,
Atomic Spectrum of Hydrogen • When H2 molecules absorb energy, some of the H-H bonds are broken and resulting hydrogen atoms are excited. The excess energy is released by emitting light of various wavelengths to produce the emission spectrum of hydrogen atom. • Continuous spectrum: Contains all the wavelengths of light. Line (discrete) spectrum: Contains only some of the wavelengths of light. Only certain energies are allowed, i.e., the energy of the electron in the hydrogen atom is quantized.
The Bohr Model • The electron in a hydrogen atom moves around the nucleus only in certain allowed circular orbits. The energy levels available to the hydrogen atom: E = energy of the levels in the H-atom z= nuclear charge (for H, z = 1) n = an integer, the large the value, the larger is the orbital radius. • Bohr was able to calculate hydrogen atom energy levels that exactly matched the experimental value. The negative sign in the above equation means that the energy of the electron bound to the nucleus is lower than it would be if the electron were at an infinite distance.
Ground State: The lowest possible energy state for an atom (n = 1). • Energy Changes in the Hydrogen Atom E = Efinal state Einitial state = -2.178 x 10-18J • The wavelength of absorbed or emitted photon can be calculated from the equation,
Example: Calculate the energy required to excite the hydrogen electron from level n = 1 to level n = 2. Also calculate the wavelength of light that must be absorbed by a hydrogen atom in its ground state to reach this excited state. Using Equation, with Z = 1 we have E1 = -2.178 x 10-18 J(12/12) = -2.178 x 10-18 J E2 = -2.178 x 10-18 J(12/22) = -5.445 x 10-19 J E = E2 -E1 = (-5.445 x 10-19 J) – (-2.178 x 10-18 J) = 1.633 x 10-18 J
The positive value for E indicates that the system has gained energy. The wavelength of light that must be absorbed to produce this change is (6.626 x 10-34 J.s)(2.9979 x 108 m/s) 1.633 x 10-18 J = 1.216 x 10-7 m
Example: Calculate the energy required to remove the electron from a hydrogen atom in its ground state. Removing the electron from a hydrogen atom in its ground state corresponds to taking the electron from ninitial = 1 to nfinal = . Thus, E = -2.178 x 10-18 J = -2.178 x 10-18 J The energy required to remove the electron from a hydrogen atom in its ground state is 2.178 x 10-18 J.
Quantum Mechanics Based on the wave propertiesof the atom Schrodinger’s equation is (too complicated to be detailed here), = wave function = mathematical operator E = total energy of the atom A specific wave function is often called an orbital. This equation is based on operators – not simple algebra. This is a mathematical concept you will not have dealt with yet.
Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle x= position mv = momentum h = Planck’s constant The more accurately we know a particle’s position, the less accurately we can know its momentum. Both the position and momentum of a particle can not be determined precisely at a given time. The uncertainty principle implies that we cannot know the exact motion of the electron as it moves around the nucleus.
Quantum Numbers (QN) When we solve the Schrodinger equation, we find many wave functions (orbitals) that satisfy it. Each of these orbitals is characterized by a series of numbers called quantum numbers, which describe various properties of the orbital. 1.Principal QN(n = 1, 2, 3, . . .) - related to size and energy of the orbital. 2.Angular Momentum QN(l = 0 to n 1) - relates to shape of the orbital. l = 0 is called s; l = 1 is called p; l = 2 is called d; l = 3 is called f. 3. Magnetic QN(ml = l to l including 0) - relates to orientation of the orbital in space relative to other orbitals. 4. Electron Spin QN(ms= +1/2, 1/2) - relates to the spin statesof the electrons.
Example: For principal quantum level n = 5, determine the number of allowed subshells (different values of l), and give the designation of each. For n = 5, the allowed values of l run from 0 to 4 (n – 1 = 5 – 1). Thus the subshells and their designations are l = 0 l = 1 l = 2 l = 3 l = 4 5s 5p 5d 5f 5g

Energy Diagram for Hydrogen Atom The energy of a particular orbital is determined by its value of n. All orbitals with the same value of n have the same energy and are said to be degenerate. Hydrogen single electron occupy the lowest energy state, the ground state. If energy is put into the system, the electron can be transferred to higher energy orbital called excited state. Orbital Energy Levels for the Hydrogen Atom
Pauli Exclusion Principle • In a given atom, no two electrons can have the same set of four quantum numbers (n, l, ml, ms). • Therefore, an orbital can hold only two electrons, and they must have opposite spins.
Polyelectronic Atoms • For polyelectronic atoms in a given principal quantum level all orbital are not in same energy (degenerate). For a given principal quantum level the orbitals vary in energy as follows: Ens< Enp < End < Enf • In other words, when electrons are placed in a particular quantum level, they prefer the orbital in the order s, p, d and then f.
Aufbau Principle As protons are added one by one to the nucleus to build up the elements, electrons are similarly added to these hydrogen-like orbitals. H : 1s1, He : 1s2, Li : 1s2 2s1, Be : 1s2 2s2 B : 1s2 2s2 2p1, C : 1s2 2s2 2p2.
Hund’s Rule The lowest energy configuration for an atom is the one having the maximum number of unpaired electronsallowed by the Pauli principle in a particular set of degenerate orbitals. N : 1s2 2s2 2p3, O : 1s2 2s2 2p4, F : 1s2 2s2 2p5, Ne : 1s2 2s2 2p6, Na : 1s2 2s2 2p63s1 OR [Ne] 3s1

Electron Affinity The energy change associated with the addition of an electron to a gaseous atom. X(g) + e X(g) These values tend to be exothermic (energy released). Adding an electron to an atom causes it to give off energy. So the value for electron affinity will carry a negative sign.

Periodic Trends Atomic Radii: Atomic radii can be obtained by measuring the distances between atoms in chemical compounds and atomic radius is assumed to be half this distance. • Decrease going from left to right across a period. This decrease can be explained in terms of the increasing effective nuclear charge in going from left to right. The valence electron are drawn closer to the nucleus, decreasing the size of the atom. • Increase going down a group, because of the increase in orbital sizes in successive principal quantum levels.
