1 Bohr model Energy level (shell) Valence electrons VocabularyBohr modelEnergy level (shell)Valence electrons
2 Bohr Model Electrons orbit the nucleus of an atom in set energy levels P = 20N = 20
3 Energy Level The specific energies an electron in an atom can have In the Bohr model used to describe the different orbits or shells that the electrons travel in around the nucleus
4 Valence ElectronsThe electrons in the highest or outermost energy level
5 Bohr Models are NOT Boring! How to Draw Bohr Diagrams
6 Bohr models-a simple way to draw an atom Bohr models are a way of showing the electrons in an atom.Electrons are arranged in energy levels. In actual atoms, those energy levels are clouds of crazy shapes where the electrons are likely to be found.Bohr models show the electron energy levels in nice, neat, easy to draw circles.
7 Bohr Diagrams Find the element on the periodic table. Determine the number of electrons--it is the same as the atomic number.This is how many electrons you will draw.
8 Bohr Diagrams Find out which period (row) your element is in. 1234567Elements in the 1st period have one energy level.Elements in the 2nd period have two energy levels, and so on.
9 The electron energy levels or shells surrounding the nucleus each hold a particular number of electrons.Energy levels or shells are represented by n= period number:n=1 max 2 electronsn=2 max 8 electronsn=3 max 18 electronsn=4 max 32 electronsRemember: The outer shell of an atom (no matter what letter) can only hold 8 electrons!
10 Max Electrons in each Energy Levels 2 electrons in 1st, 8 electrons in 2nd, 18 electrons in the 3rd, 32 electrons in the 4thThings get a little crazy in the 3rd and 4th rings…8 go into the 3rd, then the next 2 go into the 4th, then the electrons go back and fill up the 3rdP =N =2 e8 e18 e32 e
11 Max rule (2,8,18,32) Fill rule (2,8,8,2 then rest in 3rd)
12 Bohr Diagrams Draw a nucleus. Write the number of Protons and Neutrons the element has inside the nucleus.P = 6N = 6Note: Round mass to nearest 1 when figuring neutrons.
13 Bohr DiagramsCarbon is in the 2nd period, so it has two energy levels, or shells.Draw the shells around the nucleus.P = 6N = 6
14 Bohr Diagrams Add the electrons. Carbon has 6 electrons. The first shell can only hold 2 electrons.The second shell put the remaining 4 electronsP= 6N = 6
