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