Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 3) 10.0 points What is the principal quantum number for the orbital 4 d ? 1. 5 2. 2 3. 4 correct 4. 6 5. None of these 6. 3 Explanation: n = 4 002 (part 2 of 3) 10.0 points What is the orbital angular momentum quan tum number for the orbital 4 d ? 1. 3 2. 1 3. 4 4. 2 correct 5. None of these 6. Explanation: ℓ = 2 003 (part 3 of 3) 10.0 points How many magnetic quantum numbers does the orbital 4 d have? 1. 3 2. 7 3. None of these 4. 9 5. 1 6. 5 correct Explanation: m ℓ = 2 , 1 , , 1 , 2 004 10.0 points How many total nodal planes are present in the complete set of 3 d orbitals? 1. 10 2. 20 3. 16 4. 8 correct 5. 5 6. 3 Explanation: There are 5 orbitals in the 3 d set. 4 of those orbitals are cloverleafshaped and have 2 nodal planes each. That combines to give 8 total nodal planes for the set. The other (5th) orbital is the d z 2 orbital which has 2 nodal cones, not planes. 005 10.0 points How many nodes are present in a 3 s and a 3 p orbital, respectively? 1. 2 and 2 correct 2. 1 and 1 3. 0 and 1 4. 0 and 2 5. 2 and 1 goldstein (ddg625) – H04: Atomic Theory 2 – Mccord – (50970) 2 Explanation: A node is a point, a plane or a three dimen sional region of space where the sign of the wavefunction changes from positive to nega tive, (or negative to positive) so it equals zero. The lowest energy s orbital is 1 s , and this has no nodes – the wavefunction is always posi tive. As we go to the next higher value of n we add a spherical node, so 2 s would have one node, and 3 s two. The lowest energy p or bital is 2 p ; it has one nodal plane which cuts through the nucleus (the two ’lobes’ have op posite signs). Again, as we go to the next higher value of n we add a spherical node, so a 3 p orbital has two nodes. 006 10.0 points The transition metals are elements with par tially filled 1. d subshells. correct 2. f subshells. 3. s subshells. 4. p subshells. Explanation: In transition metals, d orbitals are being filled. 007 10.0 points An element with 20 protons and 20 electrons gains one electron. The electron goes into what type of orbital? 1. 4 p 2. 4 s 3. 3 p 4. 3 s 5. 3 d correct 6. 4 d Explanation: This element has electron configuration [Ar] 4 s 2 . The next electron goes into the 3 d orbital according to the Aufbau principle. 008 10.0 points Which element is predicted to have the groundstate electron configuration [He] 2 s 2 ?...
