Department of Department of 1 Chemistry CHEM 1A03: Intro. Chemistry I Essential Elements: Chemistry, Life & Health Ch.8: Electrons in Atoms What do we understand about atoms? Mostly space • Nucleus • Electrons – Described by quantum mechanics, not traditional mechanics – Behave like particles and waves – Their movement has energy changes – Not at fixed distances/in fixed locations – Orbitals describe where they probably are – Quantum numbers describe orbitals Department of Department of 2 Chemistry © Department of 3 Chemistry Electromagnetic Spectrum (Fig. 8-3) c = ν λ E ∝ ν E 1/ λ © Department of Department of 4 Chemistry i-Clicker Question #1 Choose the TRUE statement: A.
