Description of TermTermWoo!
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.
States that no two electrons in an atom or molecule can have the same set of four quantum numbers.
Any atom or molecule with a net charge.
A set of electron orbitals with the same principal quantum number.
ELectrons in the outermost energy shell of an atom.
An ion with a net negative charge.
Associated with one particular atom, in which electrons reside
A positively charged particle of mass 1.6726x10-27
The four numbers that define each particular electron of an atom.
An ion with a net positive charge.
Orbitals with identical energies
A set of electron orbitals with the same principal and second quantum numbers.
Description of TermTermWoo!
The energy change in an atom when it gains an electron.
The highest energy shell in an atom, containing valence electrons. All interactions between atoms take place through the electrons of the valence shell.
Negatively charged elementary particle of mass
An uncharged atomic particle of mass 1.67493x10-27 . It resides in the nucleus.
Measure of the ability of an atom to attract electrons to itself.
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 rule which says that, when choosing between orbitals, electrons prefer to go in separate orbitals of the same energy.
Description for two elemental species with the same electronic configuration
German for 'building up', a systematic procedure for determining the electron configuration of any atom
Through shielding, the breaking of degenerate orbitals within a shell in multi-electron atoms.
The cardinal rule of bonding. States that atoms gain stability when they have a full complement of 8 electrons in their valence shells.
When the attraction from the nucleus felt by one electron is lessened or blocked by intermediate electrons.
