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