ME 501 Multielectron Atom Example Problem From N. M. Laurendeau, Statistical Thermodynamics 3.12 The following exercises are concerned with determining the degeneracy of various electronic energy levels. a. Two closely-spaced, excited energy levels of atomic nitrogen have the configu - ration 1s22s 2 2p 2 3s. What are the values of Land S for each energy level? For both levels, determine the multiplicity, the term symbol and degeneracy of each member of the multiplet, and the cumulative degeneracy (neglecting multiplet splitting). b. Two low-lying, but closely-spaced, excited energy levels of calcium have the configuration ls22s 2 2p 6 3s 2 3p 6 4s3d. What are the values of L and S for each of these energy levels? For both levels, determine the multiplicity, the term symbol and degeneracy of each member of the multiplet, and the cumulative degeneracy. ?p )0, ( J2 '"L -- I [[3 -- 0 - 1- ~ - / S5 -::::- 1j2- - 2-Z 51 2- ~~ 35 :3 6 1 ~ 1- - - L 2) I J 0 ""2- J ~ p Z 8 .f- I - Z;Lf D S ~,s ---- ({?/VV\)i.

### 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.
