1 Chapter 6 Electronic Structure of Atoms

2 6.1 The Wave Nature of Light Made up of electromagnetic radiation. Waves of electric and magnetic fields at right angles to each other.

3 Parts of a wave Wavelength Frequency = number of cycles in one second Measured in hertz 1 hertz = 1 cycle/second = s -1

4 Frequency =

5 Kinds of EM waves There are many different and Radio waves, microwaves, x rays and gamma rays are all examples. Light is only the part our eyes can detect. Gamma Rays Radio waves

6 The speed of light in a vacuum is x 10 8 m/s = c c = What is the wavelength of light with a frequency 5.89 x 10 5 Hz? What is the frequency of blue light with a wavelength of 484 nm?

7 In 1900 Matter and energy were seen as different from each other in fundamental ways. Matter was particles. Energy could come in waves, with any frequency. Max Planck found that as the cooling of hot objects couldnt be explained by viewing energy as a wave.

8 Hot Objects and the Quantization of Energy Planck found E came in chunks with size h E = nh where n is an integer. and h is Plancks constant h = x J-s these packets of h are called quantum

9 The Photoelectric Effect - Einstein is next Light shining on a clean metal surface causes the surface to emit electrons. Said electromagnetic radiation is quantized in particles called photons. Each photon has energy = h = hc/ Combine this with E = mc 2 You get the apparent mass of a photon. m = h / ( c)

10 You Try It… Calculate the energy of one photon of yellow light whose wavelength is 589 nm.

11 Which is it? Is energy a wave like light, or a particle? Yes Concept is called the Wave -Particle duality. What about the other way, is matter a wave? Yes

12 Matter as a wave Using the velocity v instead of the frequency we get. De Broglies equation = h/mv Can calculate the wavelength of an object. The quantity mv for any object is called its momentum De Broglie used the term matter waves.

13 You Try It… What is the wavelength of an electron moving with a speed of 5.97 x 10 6 m/s? The mass of an electron is 9.11 x g.

14 Diffraction When light passes through, or reflects off, a series of thinly spaced line, it creates a rainbow effect because the waves interfere with each other.

15 15 A wave moves toward a slit.

16 16 Comes out as a curve

17 17 with two holes

18 18 with two holes Two Curves

19 19 Two Curves with two holes Interfere with each other

20 20 Two Curves with two holes Interfere with each other crests add up

21 21 Several waves

22 22 Several waves Several Curves

23 23 Several waves Interference Pattern Several Curves

24 What will an electron do? It has mass, so it is matter. A particle can only go through one hole. A wave through both holes. An electron does go through both, and makes an interference pattern. It behaves like a wave. Other matter has wavelengths too short to notice.

25 Spectrum The range of frequencies present in light. White light has a continuous spectrum. All the colors are possible. A rainbow.

26 Hydrogen spectrum Emission spectrum because these are the colors it gives off or emits. Called a line spectrum. There are just a few discrete lines showing 410 nm 434 nm 486 nm 656 nm

27 What this means Only certain energies are allowed for the hydrogen atom. Can only give off certain energies. Use E = h = hc / Energy in the in the atom is quantized.

28 Niels Bohr Developed the quantum model of the hydrogen atom. He said the atom was like a solar system. The electrons were attracted to the nucleus because of opposite charges. Didnt fall in to the nucleus because it was moving around.

29 The Bohr Ring Atom He didnt know why but only certain energies were allowed. He called these allowed energies energy levels. Putting Energy into the atom moved the electron away from the nucleus. From ground state to excited state. When it returns to ground state it gives off light of a certain energy.

30 The Bohr Ring Atom n = 3 n = 4 n = 2 n = 1

31 Give it some thought… As the electron in a hydrogen atom bumps from n=3 orbit to the n=7 orbit, does it absorb energy or emit energy?

32 The Bohr Model Doesnt work for all atoms. Only works for hydrogen atoms. Electrons dont move in circles. The quantization of energy is right, but not because they are circling like planets.

33 Limitations to the Bohr Model Bohr model offers an explanation for the line spectrum of the hydrogen atom, it cannot explain the spectra of the other atoms. Important step along the way toward the development of a more comprehensive model 1. Electrons exist only in certain discrete energy levels, described by quantum numbers 2. Energy is involved in moving an electron from one level to another.

34 The Quantum Mechanical Model A totally new approach. De Broglie said matter could be like a wave. De Broglie said they were like standing waves. The vibrations of a stringed instrument.


36 Whats possible? You can only have a standing wave if you have complete waves. There are only certain allowed waves. In the atom there are certain allowed waves called electrons Erwin Schroedinger described the wave function of the electron. Much math but what is important is the solution.

37 Schroedingers Equation The wave function is a F(x, y, z) Solutions to the equation are called orbitals. These are not Bohr orbits. Each solution is tied to a certain energy. These are the energy levels.

38 There is a limit to what we can know German physicist Werner Heisenberg proposed that the dual nature of matter places a fundamental limitation on how precisely we can know both the location and the momentum of any object. The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle.

39 What does Schroedingers Wave Function mean? nothing. it is not possible to visually map it. The square of the function is the probability of finding an electron near a particular spot. best way to visualize it is by mapping the places where the electron is likely to be found.

40 Defining the size The nodal surface. The size that encloses 90% to the total electron probability. NOT at a certain distance, but a most likely distance. For the first solution it is a sphere.

41 S orbitals

42 P orbitals

43 P Orbitals

44 D orbitals

45 F orbitals


47 Quantum Numbers There are many solutions to Schroedingers equation Each solution can be described with 4 quantum numbers that describe some aspect of the solution. 1. Principal quantum number (n) size and energy of an orbital. Has integer values >0

48 Quantum numbers 2. Angular momentum quantum number l. shape of the orbital. integer values from 0 to n-1 l = 0 is called s l = 1 is called p l =2 is called d l =3 is called f l =4 is called g

49 Values of l 0123 Letter used s Sharp p Princi-pal d Diffuse f Funda- mental

50 Quantum numbers 3. Magnetic quantum number (m l ) integer values between - l and + l, including zero. Describes the orientation of the orbital in space. 4. Electron spin quantum number (m s ) Can have 2 values. either +1/2 or -1/2

51 Give it some thought… What is the difference between an ORBIT in the Bohr model and an ORBITAL in the quantum mechanical model?

52 Terms… Electron shell – the collection of orbitals with the same value of n Subshell – the set of orbitals that have the same n and l values For example, the orbitals that have n=3, l=2 are called 3d orbitals and are in the 3d subshell.

53 Electron Configurations Pauli Exclusion Principal – no 2 electrons can have the same set of 4 quantum numbers. at most there can only be 2 electrons in a single orbital. Aufbau Principal – electrons will fill the lowest energy level first Hunds Rule – for orbitals with equal energy, electrons will occupy singly to the maximum extent possible with parallel spin before pairing up.

54 Increasing energy 1s 2s 3s 4s 5s 6s 7s 2p 3p 4p 5p 6p 3d 4d 5d 7p 6d 4f 5f He with 2 electrons

55 Fill from the bottom up following the arrows 1s 2s 2p 3s 3p 3d 4s 4p 4d 4f 5s 5p 5d 5f 6s 6p 6d 6f 7s 7p 7d 7f 1s 2 2s 2 2p 6 3s 2 3p 6 4s 2 3d 10 4p 6 5s 2 4d 10 5p 6 6s 2

56 Details Elements in the same column have the same electron configuration. Put in columns because of similar properties. Similar properties because of electron configuration. Noble gases have filled energy levels. Transition metals are filling the d orbitals

57 Exceptions Cr = [Ar] 4s 1 3d 5 Half filled orbitals. Scientists arent sure of why it happens same for Cu [Ar] 4s 1 3d 10

58 More exceptions Lanthanum La: [Xe] 6s 2 5d 1 Cerium Ce: [Xe] 6s 2 4f 1 5d 1 Promethium Pr: [Xe] 6s 2 4f 3 5d 0 Gadolinium Gd: [Xe] 6s 2 4f 7 5d 1 Lutetium Pr: [Xe] 6s 2 4f 14 5d 1 Well just pretend that all except Cu and Cr follow the rules.
