2 Quantum Number Keep in mind are probabilities of finding electrons in certain places doing certain things(spin). n = what energy level (1, 2, 3, 4...) l = what sub-level (s, p, d, or f) m = which orbital (s=1; p=3; d=5; f=?) s = which spin (only two possibilities up or down)

3 Pauli Exclusion Principle No two electrons ever have the same four quantum numbers in the same atom. Just as no two houses have the same address.

4 How are these organized? n = 1 n= 2 n = 3 n = 4 Level 1 sublevels Level 2 sublevels Level 4 sublevels Level 3 sublevels s s s s p p p d d f

5 Remember: 1s is smaller than 2s, 2s is smaller than 3s, etc. How about energy? Which has the most?

6 How do atoms put their electrons in these sublevels? Lowest energy levels are filled first. Sublevels are filled “s”, then “p”, then “d”, then “f”. Well, sort of...

10 1s orbital holds two electrons e-

11 Then consider the next orbital: 2s (which also holds only two e-.) e-

12 Then consider the next orbital: 2p there are three of them (which also hold two e- each) e- This is one of three.

13 Electron configuration for … Scandium Look up the number of electrons (same as the number of protons). Use the diagonal rule. Scandium is #21. That means Sc has _____ electrons

14 Electron configuration for … Scandium

15 Energy level (Principle Quantum #) # of electrons (add these) Sublevel

16 Electron configuration for … Scandium Add These

17 Practice Electron configurations for: Neon Aluminum Vanadium 1s 2 2s 2 2p 6 1s 2 2s 2 2p 6 3s 2 3p 1 1s 2 2s 2 2p 6 3s 2 3p 6 4s 2 3d 3
