Unformatted text preview: Version 241 – Exam 1 – Sutcliffe – (53770) 1 This printout should have 30 questions. Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. THIS EXAM IS ONLY FOR STUDENTS ENROLLED IN UNIQUE NUMBER 53770 WHICH MEETS T TH 3.305PM 001 10.0 points How many p electrons does Se (atomic num ber 34) possess? 1. 6 2. 16 correct 3. 34 4. 10 5. 12 6. 7. 4 Explanation: Se has 6 electrons in the 2 p and 3 p orbitals plus 4 more in the 4 p orbital. This gives it a total of 16 p electrons. 002 10.0 points Which quantum number is most important in determining the type, or shape of atomic orbitals? What would be its value for a 5 p orbital? 1. m ℓ , m ℓ = 1 2. ℓ, ℓ = 1 correct 3. m ℓ , m ℓ = 2 4. n, n = 5 5. n, n = 1 6. ℓ, ℓ = 5 Explanation: 003 10.0 points The length of 4 meters is the same as 1. 400 mm. 2. 40 mm. 3. 4000 mm. correct 4. 40000 mm. Explanation: ? mm = 4 m × 1000 mm 1 m = 4000 mm 004 10.0 points Calculate the frequency of a photon with a wavelength of 6240 ˚ A. 1. 4 . 81 × 10 14 Hz correct 2. 4 . 81 × 10 13 Hz 3. 3 . 19 × 10 39 Hz 4. 4 . 13 × 10 30 Hz 5. 48100 Hz 6. 3 . 19 × 10 19 Hz 7. 3 . 19 × 10 29 Hz 8. 4 . 13 × 10 20 Hz 9. 4 . 81 × 10 6 Hz Explanation: λ = 6240 ˚ A The equation that connects frequency ν to wavelength λ is ν = c λ where c is the speed of light in a vacuum (3.00 × 10 8 m/s). Remember that Hz is equal to inverse seconds (s 1 ) and that 1 ˚ A is equal to 1 × 10 10 m. ν = 3 . 00 × 10 8 m / s (6240 ˚ A) 1 × 10 10 m 1 ˚ A Version 241 – Exam 1 – Sutcliffe – (53770) 2 = 4 . 80769 × 10 14 Hz 005 10.0 points The quantum mechanical approach to atomic structure permits the calculation of 1. the most probable spin value that will be associated with an electron of specified energy. 2. the most probable radius of an orbit that an electron of specified energy will follow. 3. a region about the nucleus in which an electron of specified energy will probably be found. correct 4. the number of electrons in an atom. 5. the most probable distance between any two specified electrons. Explanation: According to the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, the momentum and the position of an electron cannot both be known simula taneously with any accuracy. The quantum mechanical approach attempts to calculate the energy of the electron exactly by defining possible energy states for the electron. The position of the electron cannot then be known with any certainty. Instead, a region of space around the nucleus is identified in which the electron is likely to be. These regions of space are commonly known as orbitals. 006 10.0 points Which of the following sets of quantum num bers are invalid , i.e. violate one or more boundary conditions?...
