Name:_____________________________________________________________________________________Date:_______________Period:________POGIL:Electron Configuration and OrbitalsModel 1:OrbitalsThe quantum mechanical model determines the allowed energies an electron can have and how likely it is to find theelectron in various locations around the nucleus.Electrons are located in orbitals (different than Bohr!) in the electroncloud.Anatomic orbitalis a region of space in which there is a high probability of finding an electron .There are fourorbitals, s, p, d, and f which are found in different energy levels calledprinciple quantum numbers.Below is a tablesummarizingthis idea.Be aware that we go all the way up to principle energy level of 7, however, it does become a bitmore complex.We use the energy level numbers and orbitals in a “code” calledelectron configurationwhich helps usexpress the location of an electron with high probability.Key Content Questions:1.What is an atomic orbital?What are the four different orbitals?2. What do you notice about the sublevels as you increase in energy levels?3.Are all orbitals found in each sublevel?s OrbitalThe s orbital is a spherical shape and can only have 2 electrons.It is the firstorbital in an energy level to be filled when writing electron configurations.The s orbital only has one orientation, seen in the picture to the right.Thisorbital is found in all energy levels.(s=sphere…memory clue!)p Orbital

The p orbital looks like a peanut (p=peanut).This orbital has 3 orientations and can therefore hold 6 total electrons.Thep orbitals and orientations are shown on the right.The orientations refer to how many different ways the orbital canorient itself in space.This orbital is found in energy levels 2-7.d OrbitalThe d orbital looks like a double peanut (d=double peanut) and can hold 10 electronstotal.This has 5 orientations, one of which is shown to the right.This orbital is foundinenergy levels 3-6.f OrbtialThe f orbital looks like a flower (f=flower) and can hold 14 electrons.This has7 orientations, one of which is shown to the right.This orbital is found inenergy levels 4 and 5.Key Content Questions:
