4Where are the electrons? Electrons are traveling at 6 x 10⁶m/sec around the nucleusPerspective of the speed:How long would it take a space vehicle to travel to the moon at the electron’s speed?
5Distance fromEarth to Moon:383,401 kmFastest travel to the moon8 hours, 35 minutesPluto mission fly-by
6Electrons: Earth to moon distance: 383,401 km Convert to meters Calculate the time to travel to the moon at the speed of an electron (6 x 10⁶ m/sec):Distance = Time x Speed
7Electrons & Electromagnetic Radiation By studying the light emitted when heating up a chemical sample, scientists better understood the electron:Its position in the atom;Its energy; &Its role (bonding = forming compounds)Scientists used the electromagnetic radiation to study electrons
8Electromagnetic Radiation Form of energy that has a wave-like propertiesCharacterized byWavelengthFrequencyEnergy
17Bohr’s discovery and model: saved video from Discovery Education Starts with historical perspective
18Bohr’s Model of the Atom Electrons orbit the nucleus at:At the lowest energy level possibleCalled the ground stateElectrons can be excited by:Electricity, light, chemical reactionsWhen excited, an electron will absorb only a certain amount of energy,A “packet” of energy called a photon or quantum
19Bohr’s model When excited, the electron Will jump to a higher energy levelCalled the excited stateThe electron does not stay in the excited state but falls back toward the nucleus and releases energy
25How do neon lights produce the glowing colors? FACTS:Neon is a colorless, inert (non-reactive, non-flammable) gasNeon lights are tubes filled with neon gas.
26Neon atoms Normal conditions Electricity passing through the tube Electrons are at the ground stateNo light (energy) is emittedElectricity passing through the tubeAtoms absorb energyElectrons become excited and unstableElectrons are pulled back toward the nucleusElectromagnetic radiation is emitted
27Elements and their electromagnetic radiation Emissions spectrumUnique for each elementElectrons are excited by electricityWhen they are pulled back by the ____________, they give off __________
28Emission Spectrum White light Hydrogen: Nitrogen: Mercury: Neon: Write the order of the colorsHydrogen:Nitrogen:Mercury:Neon:Other:
31Emissions Spectra - Simulation Produce light by bombarding atoms with electrons. See how the characteristic spectra of different elements are produced, and configure your own element's energy states to produce light of different colors.
32Emission Spectra Unique for each element Used to identify elements as part of unknown compounds
37Electrons in models of atoms Exploratory LabHow did scientists figure out the structure of atoms without looking at them? Try out different models by shooting light at the atom. Check how the prediction of the model matches the experimental results.
