B. Energy Levels Electrons can only exist at certain energy levels. Low energy levels are close to the nucleus. Each energy level (n) can hold 2n 2 electrons.
C. Bohr Model Diagrams Simplified energy levels using Bohr’s idea of circular orbits. e- Maximum e - Level 12e - Level 28e - Level 318e - Level 432e - Lithium Atomic #:3 Mass: 7 # of p:3 # of e:3 # of n:4 p p n n n n p e- Can replace with: 3p 4n
C. Bohr Model Activity Choose a number between 1 & 18. Find your element by the atomic number you picked. Draw a Bohr Model diagram for your element on your marker board. Round off the mass listed on the table and subtract the atomic # to find the # of neutrons. Abbreviate the # of ‘p’ and ‘n’ in the nucleus. Have a partner check your drawing. Repeat with a new element.
