Introduction The view of the atom as a positively charged nucleus (protons and neutrons) surrounded by electrons is useful for visualizing the basic structure of an atom The view of the atom as a positively charged nucleus (protons and neutrons) surrounded by electrons is useful for visualizing the basic structure of an atom However, this model of the atom explains only a few simple properties of atoms. However, this model of the atom explains only a few simple properties of atoms.

12.1 Bohr Model Electrons can jump from one energy to another by gaining or losing just the right amount of energy Electrons can jump from one energy to another by gaining or losing just the right amount of energy Electrons cannot exist between energy levels Electrons cannot exist between energy levels A quantum of energy is the amount of energy required to move an electron to the next highest energy level. A quantum of energy is the amount of energy required to move an electron to the next highest energy level. The higher the energy level the farther the electron is from the nucleus (usually) The higher the energy level the farther the electron is from the nucleus (usually) Energy levels are more closely spaced further from the nucleus Energy levels are more closely spaced further from the nucleus The higher the energy level the easier it is for the electron to escape The higher the energy level the easier it is for the electron to escape

12.4 Pauli Exclusion Princple An atomic orbital may describe at most two electrons An atomic orbital may describe at most two electrons To occupy the same orbital, two electrons must have opposite spins (the electrons spin must be paired) or they would repel each other To occupy the same orbital, two electrons must have opposite spins (the electrons spin must be paired) or they would repel each other Electron spin can clockwise or counterclockwise and is represented by vertical arrows that point up or down Electron spin can clockwise or counterclockwise and is represented by vertical arrows that point up or down

23
Hund’s Rule When electrons occupy orbitals of equal energy, one electron enters each orbital until all the orbitals contain on electron with parallel spins (arrows in the same direction). When electrons occupy orbitals of equal energy, one electron enters each orbital until all the orbitals contain on electron with parallel spins (arrows in the same direction). Second electrons then add to each orbital so that their spins are paired with those of the first electrons in the orbital. Second electrons then add to each orbital so that their spins are paired with those of the first electrons in the orbital.
