1 Unit 3: Structure and Properties Lesson 1: Atomic Structure ScientistContribution to Atomic TheoryExperiment
2 Atomic Structure Chemistry 12: Chapter 4 Atoms and Molecules “The idea that matter is made of tiny indivisible particles was first suggested by the Greek philosopher Democritus (c BC). He called these particles atoms. In the late 18th century a modern theory about atoms originated. By then new gases, metals, and other substances had been discovered. Many chemical reactions were studied and the weights of substances involved were measured carefully. John Dalton’s atomic theory arose from these observations. He believed that the atoms of an element were all identical and differed from those of a different element. Two or more of these atoms could join together in chemical combination producing “molecules” of substances called compounds. The molecules in a compound were all identical. The Italian thinker Amadeo Avagadro ( ) asserted that the same volume of any gas would contain the same number of molecules. Although this idea was not immediately accepted, it eventually helped chemists calculate atomic and molecular weights. These weights are related to the weight of hydrogen, which is counted as one.”Eyewitness Science “Chemistry” , Dr. Ann Newmark, DK Publishing, Inc., 1993, pg 16Chemistry 12: Chapter 4

Writing in 1661, Robert Boyle ( ) argued against this idea, paving the way for modern ideas of the elements. He defined an element accurately as a substance that could not be broken down into simpler substances.”Eyewitness Science “Chemistry” , Dr. Ann Newmark, DK Publishing, Inc., 1993, pg 18Plato was Aristotle's student. It was Aristotle that suggested qualities of "hot, dry, cold, wet".Fire Water Earth Air~
6 Greek Model Democritus (400 B.C.) “To understand the very large, we must understand the very small.”Democritus (400 B.C.)Greek philosopher – “thought” experimentsIdea of ‘atomos’Atomos = ‘indivisible’Tear up a piece of matter until you reach the atomos.Democritus’s model of atomAtomists; they argued for a completely materialistic universe consisting of atoms moving in a void.Since mere fragments of the ideas of Leucippus are known, his pupil, Democritus of Abdera (c B.C.)is considered the elaborator of this concept.Aaron J. Ihde The Development of Modern Chemistry, Dover Publishing, 1984 pg 6It should also be noted that the Romans were not a scientific people and made almost no scientific contributions of their own.“To understand the very large, we must understand the very small.”-DemocritusThe worldReality to Democritus consists of the atoms and the void. Atoms are indivisible, indestructible, eternal, and are in constant motion. However, they are not all the same as they differ in shape, arrangement and position. As the atoms move they come into contact with other atoms and form bodies. A thing comes into being when the atoms that make it up are appropriately associated and passes away when these parts disperse.This leaves no room for the intelligent direction of things, either by human or divine intelligence, as all that exists are atoms and the void. Democritus stated, "Nothing occurs at random, but everything occurs for a reason and by necessity."The soulAlthough intelligence is not allowed to explain the organization of the world, according to Democritus, he does give place for the existence of a soul, which he contends is composed of exceedingly fine and spherical atoms. He holds that, "spherical atoms move because it is their nature never to be still, and that as they move they draw the whole body along with them, and set it in motion." In this way, he viewed soul-atoms as being similar to fire-atoms: small, spherical, capable of penetrating solid bodies and good examples of spontaneous motion.A simple demonstration: play a game where you can cover half the distance across a room with each step.Ask if you will ever make it to the wall on the other side of the room.The first step takes you half the distance (50%); the next step moves you half the distance closer again (25% more or 75% across the room);you continue this several more times.When you are right up to the wall, ask if you are at the wall. Half the students will say "no", and half will say close enough.”Nothing exists but atoms and space, all else is opinion”.

Discovered by Becquerel –exposed photographic film3. Further work by CuriesAntoine-Henri Becquerel( )Their research led to the isolation of polonium, and radium. Together they were awarded half of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1903, for their study into the spontaneous radiation discovered by Becquerel, who was awarded the other half of the Prize. In 1911 Marie Curie received a second Nobel Prize, this time in Chemistry, in recognition of her work in radioactivity.

18 Ernest Rutherford (1871-1937) Planetary Model of the Atom PAPERLearned physics in J.J. Thomson’ lab.Noticed that ‘alpha’ particles were sometimes deflected by something in the air.Gold-foil experimentErnest Rutherford received the Nobel Prize in chemistry (1908) for his work with radioactivity.Ernest Rutherford ( ) was born in Nelson, New Zealand in He began work in J.J. Thompson’s laboratory in He later moved to McGill University in Montreal where he became one of the leading figures in the field of radioactivity. From 1907 on he was professor at the University of Manchester where he worked with Geiger and Marsden. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1908 for his work on radioactivity. In 1910, with co-workers Geiger and Marsden he discovered that alpha-particles could be deflected by thin metal foil. This work enabled him to propose a structure for the atom. Later on he proposed the existence of the proton and predicted the existence of the neutron. He died in 1937 and like J.J. Thompson is buried in Westminster Abbey. He was one of the most distinguished scientists of his century.Is the Nucleus Fundamental?Because it appeared small, solid, and dense, scientists originally thought that the nucleus was fundamental. Later, they discovered that it was made of protons (p+), which are positively charged, and neutrons (n), which have no charge.Animation by Raymond Chang – All rights reserved.

The physicist from New Zealand described atoms as having a central nucleus with electrons revolving around it. He showed that radium atoms emitted “rays” and were transformed into radon atoms. Nuclear reactions like this can be regarded as transmutations – one element changing into another, the process alchemists sought in vain to achieve by chemical means.”Eyewitness Science “Chemistry” , Dr. Ann Newmark, DK Publishing, Inc., 1993, pg 35When Rutherford shot alpha particles at a thin piece of gold foil, he found that while most of them traveled straight through, some of them were deflected by huge angles.circular ZnS - coatedfluorescent screengold foilDorin, Demmin, Gabel, Chemistry The Study of Matter , 3rd Edition, 1990, page 120

25 Rutherford’s Gold-Leaf Experiment Conclusions: Atom is mostly empty space Atom has a very small, dense, positively charged core. (nucleus) Electrons float around nucleus“Rutherford’s Gold-Leaf Experiment”DescriptionThis slide illustrates Ernest Rutherford’s experiment with alpha particles and gold foil and his interpretation of the results.Basic ConceptsWhen charged particles are directed at high speed toward a metal foil target, most pass through with little or no deflection, but some particles are deflected at large angles.Solids are composed of atoms that are closely packed. The atoms themselves are mostly empty space.All atoms contain a relatively small, massive, positively charged nucleus. The nucleus is surrounded by negatively charged electrons of low mass that occupy a relatively large volume.Teaching SuggestionsUse this slide to describe and explain Rutherford’s experiment. Rutherford designed the apparatus shown in figure (A) to study the scattering of alpha particles by gold. Students may have difficult with the concepts in this experiment because they lack the necessary physics background. To help students understand how it was determined that the nucleus is relatively massive, use questions 3 and 4 to explain the concept of inertia.Explain that the electrostatic force is directly proportional to the quantity of electric charge involved. A greater charge exerts a greater force. (Try comparing the electrostatic force to the foce of gravity, which is greater near a massive object like the sun, but smaller near an object of lesser mass, such as the moon.) The force exerted on an alpha particle by a concentrated nucleus would be much greater that the force exerted on an alpha particle by a single proton. Hence, larger deflections will result from a dense nucleus than from an atom with diffuse positive charges.Point out that Rutherford used physics to calculate how small the nucleus would have to be produce the large-angle deflections observed. He calculated that the maximum possible size of the nucleus is about 1/10,000 the diameter of the atom. Rutherford concluded that the atom is mostly space.QuestionsIf gold atoms were solid spheres stacked together with no space between them, what would you expect would happen to particles shot at them? Explain your reasoning.When Ernest Rutherford performed the experiment shown in diagram (A) he observed that most of the alpha particles passed straight through the gold foil. He also noted that the gold foil did not appear to be affected. How can these two observations be explained?Can you explain why Rutherford concluded that the mass of the f\gold nucleus must be much greater than the mass of an alpha particle? (Hint: Imagine one marble striking another marble at high speed. Compare this with a marble striking a bowling ball.)Do you think that, in Rutherford’s experiment, the electrons in the gold atoms would deflect the alpha particles significantly? Why or why not? (Hint: The mass of an electron is extremely small.)Rutherford experimented with many kinds of metal foil as the target. The results were always similar. Why was it important to do this?A friend tries to convince you that gold atoms are solid because gold feels solid. Your friend also argues that, because the negatively charged electrons are attracted to the positively charged nucleus, the electrons should collapse into the nucleus. How would you respond?As you know, like charges repel each other. Yet, Rutherford determined that the nucleus contains all of an atom’s positive charges. Invent a theory to explain how all the positive charges can be contained in such a small area without repelling each other. Be creative!Dorin, Demmin, Gabel, Chemistry The Study of Matter , 3rd Edition, 1990, page 120
26 Evidence for Particles In 1886, Goldstein, using equipment similar to cathode ray tube, discovered particles with charge equal and opposite to that of electron, but much larger mass.Rutherford later (1911) found these particles to be identical to hydrogen atoms minus one electron- named these particles protonsChadwick (1932) discovered particles with similar mass to protonbut zero charge.- discovered neutrons
27 An unsatisfactory model for the hydrogen atom According to classical physics, lightshould be emitted as the electroncircles the nucleus. A loss of energywould cause the electron to be drawncloser to the nucleus and eventuallyspiral into it.Hill, Petrucci, General Chemistry An Integrated Approach 2nd Edition, page 294
29 Niels Bohr (1913) e- can only occupy certain regions of space (orbits) e- only have specific (quantized) energy values in an atom (energy levels)e- can move from one orbit to another by absorbing or emitting energy, giving rise to characteristic spectra.Bohr’s model could not explain the spectra of atoms heavierthan hydrogen.
30 Bohr Model of Atom e- e- e- Increasing energyof orbitsn = 3e-n = 2n = 1e-e-In 1913, Niels Bohr proposed a theoretical model for the hydrogen atom that explained its emission spectrum.– His model required only one assumption: The electron moves around the nucleus in circular orbits that can have only certain allowed radii.– Bohr proposed that the electron could occupy only certain regions of space– Bohr showed that the energy of an electron in a particular orbit isEn = – hcn2where is the Rydberg constant, h is the Planck’s constant, c is the speed of light, and n is a positive integer corresponding to the number assigned to the orbit.n = 1 corresponds to the orbit closest to the nucleus and is the lowest in energy.A hydrogen atom in this orbit is called the ground state, the most stable arrangement for a hydrogen atom.As n increases, the radii of the orbit increases and the energy of that orbit becomes less negative.A hydrogen atom with an electron in an orbit with n >1 is in an excited state — energy is higher than the energy of the ground state.Decay is when an atom in an excited state undergoes a transition to the ground state — loses energy by emitting a photon whose energy corresponds to the difference in energy between the two states.A photon is emittedwith energy E = hfThe Bohr model of the atom, like many ideas inthe history of science, was at first prompted byand later partially disproved by experimentation.
