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