Description of TermTermWoo!
The highest energy shell in an atom, containing valence electrons. All interactions between atoms take place through the electrons of the valence shell.
Any atom or molecule with a net charge.
Measure of the ability of an atom to attract electrons to itself.
Associated with one particular atom, in which electrons reside
A rule which says that, when choosing between orbitals, electrons prefer to go in separate orbitals of the same energy.
Atoms with the same number of protons (i.e. same atomic number) but a different number of neutrons.
The cardinal rule of bonding. States that atoms gain stability when they have a full complement of 8 electrons in their valence shells.
German for 'building up', a systematic procedure for determining the electron configuration of any atom
A positively charged particle of mass 1.6726x10-27
The small, dense central region of an atom around which electrons orbit. Made up of protons and neutrons.
The four numbers that define each particular electron of an atom.
The energy change in an atom when it gains an electron.
A set of electron orbitals with the same principal quantum number.
Description of TermTermWoo!
Description for two elemental species with the same electronic configuration
States that no two electrons in an atom or molecule can have the same set of four quantum numbers.
Through shielding, the breaking of degenerate orbitals within a shell in multi-electron atoms.
An ion with a net negative charge.
Orbitals with identical energies
A tenet of quantum mechanics that says that the position and momentum of any particle cannot both be known precisely at the same time.
An uncharged atomic particle of mass 1.67493x10-27 . It resides in the nucleus.
ELectrons in the outermost energy shell of an atom.
When the attraction from the nucleus felt by one electron is lessened or blocked by intermediate electrons.
A set of electron orbitals with the same principal and second quantum numbers.
An ion with a net positive charge.
Negatively charged elementary particle of mass
The energy it takes to remove an electron from an atom.
