7. Quantum Theory (4 lessons)

Concepts

  • The Bohr model is only an approximation of real electron behaviour.  Actually, electrons do not “orbit” the nucleus but exist in probability clouds at different energy levels.
  • Unpaired electrons in atomic orbitals produce ferromagnetic behaviour.

Skills

Quiz 7a

  • Determine the electron configuration of an atom in its ground state.
  • Relate ground-state electron configurations to the periodic table.
  • Relate Bohr model “energy levels” to quanum-mechanical model “orbitals.”
