atomic radius ~ 100 pm = 1 x 10 -10 m nuclear radius ~ 5 x 10 -3 pm = 5 x 10 -15 m Rutherford’s Model of the Atom If the atom is Florida Field (“Swamp”), then the nucleus is a marble on the 50-yard line. A nucleus is about 1 ten-trillionth of average atomic volume!

Isotopic Abundance (%-abundance) = {[(number of atoms of a given isotope in the sample)] [(total # of atoms of all isotopes of that element in the sample)]} x 100% Example: 12 C is 98.89% of all naturally-occurring C 13 C is 1.11% of all naturally-occurring C 14 C is <0.01% of all naturally-occurring C
Period Group Alkali Metals Noble Gases Halogens Alkaline Earth Metals

Dalton’s Atomic Theory (1808) 1. Elements are composed of extremely small particles called atoms . 2. All atoms of a given element are identical, having the same size, mass and chemical properties. The atoms of one element are different from the atoms of all other elements. 3. Compounds are composed of atoms of more than one element. In any compound, the ratio of the numbers of atoms of any two of the elements present is either an integer or a simple fraction. 4. A chemical reaction involves only the separation, combination, or rearrangement of atoms; it does not result in their creation or destruction.
