3 I. Atomic Structure NOTE: The Greek philosopher __________ (460 B.C. – 370 B.C.) was among the first to suggest the existence of atoms (from the Greek word “ atomos ” ) –He believed that atoms were ________ and _____________ –His ideas did agree with later scientific theory, but did not explain chemical behavior, and was ________________ _______________– but just philosophy Democritus indivisible indestructible not based on the scientific method A. Section 4.1 Defining the Atom

4 1. Dalton ’ s Atomic Theory (experiment based!) c. Atoms of different elements combine in simple whole-number ratios to form chemical _________ d. In chemical reactions, atoms are combined, separated, or rearranged – but ____ changed into atoms of another element. a. All elements are composed of tiny indivisible particles called _____. b. Atoms of the same element are _______. Atoms of any one element are _______ from those of any other element. John Dalton (1766 – 1844) atoms identical different compounds never

5 Problems with Dalton’s Atomic Theory? 1. matter is composed of indivisible particles Atoms Can Be Divided, but only in a nuclear reaction 2. all atoms of a particular element are identical Does Not Account for Isotopes (atoms of the same element but a different mass due to a different number of neutrons)! Different elements have different atoms. YES! 3. atoms combine in certain whole-number ratios YES! Called the Law of Definite Proportions 4. In a chemical reaction, atoms are merely rearranged to form new compounds; they are not created, destroyed, or changed into atoms of any other elements.

62 Mass Defect Difference between the mass of an atom and the mass of its individual particles amu amu

63 Nuclear Binding Energy Energy released when a nucleus is formed from nucleons. High binding energy = stable nucleus. E = mc 2 E:energy (J) m:mass defect (kg) c:speed of light (3.00×10 8 m/s)

64 Nuclear Binding Energy Unstable nuclides are radioactive and undergo radioactive decay.

65 Types of Radiation Alpha particle (  ) –helium nucleus paper 2+ Beta particle (  -) –electron 1- lead Positron (  +) –positron 1+ Gamma (  ) –high-energy photon 0 concrete

69 IQ# 1 1.Balance the following equations:

70 Nuclear Decay Why nuclides decay… –need stable ratio of neutrons to protons

71 Belt of Stability and Radioactive Decay

72 Half-life Half-life (t ½ ) –Time required for half the atoms of a radioactive nuclide to decay. –Shorter half-life = less stable.

73 Half-life m f :final mass m i :initial mass n:# of half-lives

74 Half-life Fluorine-21 has a half-life of 5.0 seconds. If you start with 25 g of fluorine-21, how many grams would remain after 60.0 s? GIVEN: t ½ = 5.0 s m i = 25 g m f = ? total time = 60.0 s n = 60.0s ÷ 5.0s =12 WORK : m f = m i (½) n m f = (25 g)(0.5) 12 m f = g

75 Example: How much of a 500. g sample of Uranium-235 would be left after five half-lives? (n = # of half-lives) M i = 500 g n = 5 M f = ? m f = m i (½) n m f = (500 g)(0.5) 5 m f = 15.6 g

76 Example: A mg sample of Radon- 222 decays to mg after 24 hours. Determine the half-life. 16 → 8 → 4 → 2 → 1 → 0.5 → = 6 half lives

77 Example: The half-life of molybdenum-99 is 67 hours. How much of a mg sample is left after 335 hours? M i = mg Half-life = 67 h Rxn time = 335 h M f = ? n = 335 / 67 = 5 m f = m i (½) n m f = (1.000 mg)(0.5) 5 m f = mg

78 Learning Check! The half life of I-123 is 13 hr. How much of a 64 mg sample of I-123 is left after 39 hours? M i = 64 mg n = 3 M f = ? m f = m i (½) n m f = (64 mg)(0.5) 3 m f = 8.0 mg

79 Half-life Lab Procedure: 1. Each lab group will acquire a sample of 50 pennies in a cup. 2. Count pennies to make sure you have 50 pennies. 3.Enter “50” in Shake # 0 row for Trial 1, 2, & 3 and “150” for  (Sum of) of trials Shake the cup of pennies. Pour the pennies on to the lab bench. 5. Remove all pennies that land on “heads”. They have decayed. 6. Count only the remaining pennies (the pennies that landed on “tails”). Record data. 7. Place only the remaining pennies (“tails”) into the cup and shake again. Repeat steps 4-7 until all pennies have decayed. 8. Repeat the process two more times and record data under Trial 2 & 3.

80 Data:Collect data for three trials in the table. Data Analysis: Prepare a graph to represent the decay of your sample (  of trials (y-axis) vs. Shake # (x-axis)) Prepare a graph in your lab book: Graph the # of undecayed atoms (  of trials) (y-axis) versus the Shake # (x-axis). Label the x and y axes, including units (if applicable). Make graph large (at least 2/3 pg.). Draw a best fit curve that represents your data. Use a Ruler! Plot the Shake # for the  of trials using the best fit curve. Determine the “half life” of your sample in terms of # of shakes using your graph.

81 Graphing the Results Important !! Title every graph and label each axis (include units) Graphs should be at least 2/3 page Use a ruler Circle all data points Use a best-fit line (no “connect the dots”!) Find the average half-life (in # of trials) of your sample by interpolating your curve at exactly 75, 37.5, and pennies undecayed)
