1 The Bohr Model was not a perfect theory. It didn’t work for anything other than H. Section 2.4 Revised Theory THE SCHRODINGER MODEL Requires a knowledge of coordinate systems, trigonometry, matrices, and calculus to derive. (Not one of Dr. Petrovich’s favorite college courses.) + e Electron was thought to be a particle (experimental evidence) + deBroglie thought “What if an electron is treated as a wave ?” + Stable waves cannot be like this. Section 2.4 node node node node node node n=1 n=4 n=3 n=2 (# nodes = n - 1) (2) (1) (0) (3) The more nodes, the ________ the E. higher Section 2.4 node node n=3 Section 2.4 2L/n 2/3 *4 = 2.67 L = length of string = 4cm wavelength (# nodes = n - 1) = 2 A 4 cm string is fastened at both sides is plucked. What is the wavelength of the n = 3 standing wave? How many nodes does it contain? Solution to the Schroedinger Equation Resulted in Quantum Numbers The “probability region” of each electron in an atom is described by 4 quantum numbers n , principal QN l , orbital angular momentum QN m l , magnetic orbital QN m s , spin QN Section 2.4 •Primary indicator of the electron’s energy n , principal QN Designates level or shell •Can have values 1, 2, 3, … Same idea an n from Bohr model the bigger the n, the further away the e - is from the nucleus.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
