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