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