Energy Levels in Atoms Electron clouds can become large To increase in size, energy must be absorbed “The different states of potential energy that electrons have in an atom are called energy levels .” Energy = capacity to do work An important part of understanding life is understanding how energy is stored and moved from molecule to molecule

Electron Orbitals Electrons exist within specific energy levels or electron shells which are probabilistic clouds surrounding nuclei; it is the quantum changes in the shape (e.g., size) of these clouds that correspond to changes in the energy associated with an electron
