HW Set 2 - KEY BASIC ATOMIC STRUCTURE CHM 2045 HW3K-G1.ATM Sub-Atomic Particles 1. The beams of electrons or cathode-rays from both tubes are identical despite the difference their cathode compositions. Since the same particles originate from different elements, the electrons could be assumed to part of the composition of all atoms. 2. a) Since the electron carries the smallest quantity of negative charge (by definition, unit negative charge or -1), the addition of an electron to a neutral body gives that body -1 charge. The addition of one electron to a neutral atom produces an ion with -1 charge: A + 1e - ! A -1 where A is any atom The addition of two electrons to a neutral atom yields an ion with a 2- charge, and so on. A + 2e - ! A 2- b) Loss of electron(s) by a neutral atom yields ions with unit positive charge(s). A ! A + + 1e - A ! A 2+ + 2e - 3. The droplets contain different charges because there may be 1, 2, 3 or more excess electrons on the droplet. The charge of one electron is likely to be the lowest common factor in all the observed charges (and the smallest difference in charge that may be calculated between any two droplets). Assuming this is so, we calculate the apparent electronic charge from each drop as follows: A 1.60 x 10 -19 coul/1e - = 1.60 x 10 -19 coul/e - B 3.15 x 10 -19 coul/2e - = 1.58 x 10 -19 coul/e - C 4.81 x 10 -19 coul/3e - = 1.60 x 10 -19 coul/e - D 6.31 x 10 -19 coul/4e - = 1.58 x 10 -19 coul/e - The average value from these four observations is 1.59 x 10 -19 coul/e - . 4. Mass of an electron: e = - 1.76 x 10 8 coul therefore: m g m = e = -1.60 x 10 -19 coul = 9.09 x 10 -28 g -1.76 x 10 8 coul -1.76 x 10 8 coul g g

All other elements have atomic nuclei with at least as many neutrons as protons. When computing the mass of an atom, ion, or molecule it will be practical to ignore the mass of the electrons. 5. Neutrons have no electrostatic charge and consequently would not generate the significant magnetic field observed for a charged particle in motion. The external magnetic field used to characterize moving charged particles such as electrons and protons would not have a major effect upon a path of a neutron beam. 6. a) Radius of a proton = d = 1.5 x 10 -13 cm = 0.75 x 10 -13 cm 2 2 Volume of a proton = 4 B r 3 = 4 (3.14)(0.75 x 10 -13 cm) 3 = 1.8 x 10 -39 cm 3 3 3 Density = mass = 1.67 x 10 -24 g = 9.3 x 10 14 g volume 1.8 x 10 -39 cm 3 cm 3 Stop and think about this for a moment.

### What students are saying

• 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.
