Be very careful to note the difference between the “classic” periodic chart (the filled periodic chart) and the empty periodic chart that more accurately reflects the filling of the shells in the sixth and seventh period. Fill in just the very last portion of the electronic configuration (from above). Answer the following questions: (1) Why are the first two columns offset? (2) Why are the last six columns offset? (3) Why are there ten columns of transition metals? (4) Why do I contend that it is more appropriate to put La and Ac in the bottom two periods, and put Lu and Lr in the transition metals? (5) Why don’t we see the use of any subshells higher than the “f” subshell? Dakota State University Page 98 of 232 Experiment 7: Quantum Mechanics General Chemistry I and II Lab Manual (6) IF enough elements are created to necessitate the use of the “g” subshell (the one immediately following the “f” subshell), how many columns would this block need in the periodic chart? Part III: HyperChem Often, one of the biggest problems with quantum mechanics is the abstract nature of it. The concept of shells, subshells, orbitals and spin all arise as mathematical solutions to Schroedinger’s equation, and our only verification that the results are reasonable at all is by comparison with experiment. We will show in later experiments how these calculations can be used to calculate experimental results, but for the time being, let’s at least get used to what these mathematical tells us by looking at the shapes of orbitals. Start HyperChem on your system. Open up the build tool/periodic chart by double clicking on the “draw” tool. Click on Krypton (Kr); this is the first noble gas that uses s, p, d and f subshells. Put a single Krypton atom on the screen (it should appear as a simple circle). Choose “SetUp” and click on “Ab Initio.” This will solve Schroedinger’s equation for Kr...
