Waves is Greek letter lambda is Greek letter nu • The number of waves passing a given point per unit of time is the frequency (). • For waves traveling at the same velocity, the longer the wavelength, the smaller the frequency. – Wavelength: It is the distance between two consecutive peaks or troughs in a wave. – Frequency: It indicates how many waves pass a given point per second. – Speed: It indicates how fast a given peak is moving through the space. – Speed of light ,c= ,where =wave length and =frequency © 2009, Prentice-Hall, Inc. EMR Electromagnetic Radiation: Electromagnetic radiation is one of the ways in which energy travels through space. All forms of EMR compose the electromagnetic radiation spectrum, which includes sun rays, microwaves, Xrays, visible spectrum, UV rays and IR rays. • Some characteristics of EMR are: • All electromagnetic radiation moves at a constant speed of about 3.0 X 108 m/s. • All EMR exhibit wave like behavior. Waves have three primary characteristics: – Wavelength: It is the distance between two consecutive peaks or troughs in a wave. – Frequency: It indicates how many waves pass a given point per second. – Speed: It indicates how fast a given peak is moving through the space. – Speed of light ,c= ,where =wave length and =frequency Electromagnetic Radiation • All electromagnetic radiation travels at the same velocity: the speed of light (c), 3.00 108 m/s. • Therefore, c = © 2009, Prentice-Hall, Inc.

Make a list of type of EMR you might see in your home. Wave Nature of Light • Before the concept of quantization of energy, the wave like nature of light/energy was widely accepted. • Two properties that exhibit the wave like behavior of light are interference and diffraction.

Planck’s Theory of Quantization of Energy • Planck’s theory: Before Planck’s theory, the wave model of the light was widely accepted. But it was unable to explain some phenomenon for example change in the radiation (wave length) emitted by an object with the change in temperature. h = 6.626 x 10-34 J∙s • To explain this, Planck suggested that the energy transfer or exchange is not a continuous process, but is done in small packets of energy called by him as quantum.(Word quantum means fixed amount.) So, he introduced the concept of quantization of energy. • According to Planck’s theory, E= hv, where E= energy of radiation h= Planck’s constant v= frequency of radiation Quantization of Energy: Max Plank • Where else do you see quantization in real life? Therefore, if one knows the wavelength of light, one can calculate the energy in one photon, or packet, of that light: c = E = h The Nature of Energy Another mystery in the early 20th century involved the emission spectra observed from energy emitted by atoms and molecules. © 2009, Prentice-Hall, Inc. The Nature of Energy • Einstein used this assumption to explain the photoelectric effect. • He concluded that electromagnetic radiation has a dual wave-particle nature © 2009, Prentice-Hall, Inc. Photoelectric Effect: It refers to the emission of electrons from a metal, when the light shines on the metal. For each metal the frequency of light needed to release the electrons is different. But the wave theory of light could not explain it. The photoelectric effect led scientists to think about the dual nature of light i.e. as a wave and a particle both. Animation 1: http://www.upscale.utoronto.ca/GeneralInterest/Harrison/Flash/Nuclear/XRayIntera ct/XRayInteract.html Animation 2: http://faculty.ucc.edu/chemistry-pankuch/Photoelectric/PE3.html Photoelectric Effect • Max Planck suggested that the hot object emits energy in small, specific amounts called quanta. • 1905, Einstein said electromagnetic radiation has a dual wave- particle nature. • A photon is a particle of emr having zero rest mass and carrying a quantum of energy • Emr is absorbed onl in whole numbers of photons, thus electrons in different metals require different minimum frequencies to exhibit the photoelectric effect http://www.shsu.edu/%7Echm_tgc/sounds/flashfiles/pee.s wf The Nature of Energy • For atoms and molecules one does not observe a continuous spectrum, as one gets from a white light source. • Only a line spectrum of discrete wavelengths is observed. © 2009, Prentice-Hall, Inc.

Ex. A beam of red light has a lower energy photons than beam of blue light. The Nature of Energy • Niels Bohr adopted Planck’s assumption and explained these phenomena in this way: 1. Electrons in an atom can only occupy certain orbits (corresponding to certain energies).

The Nature of Energy • Niels Bohr adopted Planck’s assumption and explained these phenomena in this way: 2. Electrons in permitted orbits have specific, “allowed” energies; these energies will not be radiated from the atom. © 2009, Prentice-Hall, Inc. The Nature of Energy • Niels Bohr adopted Planck’s assumption and explained these phenomena in this way: 3.

Because photons have about the same energy as electrons, any attempt to locate a specific electron with a photon knocks the electron off its course. Therefore, the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle • States that it is impossible to determine simultaneously both the position and velocity of an electron or any other particle. http://hackensackhigh.org/~rkc2/diffraction.jpg Quantum Theory: Describes mathematically the wave properties of electrons or other very small particles treating e- as waves and using Heisenberg’s and De Broglie’s principles. Quantum Mechanical Model of Atom (Schrodinger’s Model) Erwin Schrödinger, in developing a quantum-mechanical model for the atom, began with a classical equation for the properties of waves. He modified this equation to take into account the mass of a particle and the de Broglie relationship between mass and wavelength. The important consequences of the quantum-mechanical view of atoms are the following: (http://www.cartage.org.lb/en/themes/sciences/chemistry/Generalchemistry/Atomic/Electronicstructure/Electronicstructures/Quantum/Quantum.htm-) 1. 2. 3. 4. The energy of electrons in atoms is quantized. The number of possible energy levels for electrons in atoms of different elements is a direct consequence of wave-like properties of electrons. The position and momentum of an electron cannot both be determined simultaneously. The region in space around the nucleus in which an electron is most probably located is what can be predicted for each electron in an atom. Electrons of different energies are likely to be found in different regions. The region in which an electron with a specific energy will most probably be located is called an atomic orbital. Quantum Mechanics • Erwin Schrödinger developed a mathematical treatment into which both the wave and particle nature of matter could be incorporated. • It is known as quantum mechanics. © 2009, Prentice-Hall, Inc. Quantum Mechanics • The wave equation is designated with a lower case Greek psi (). • The square of the wave equation, 2, gives a probability density map of where an electron has a certain statistical likelihood of being at any given instant in time. © 2009, Prentice-Hall, Inc. Quantum Numbers • Schrodinger arrived at three functions while solving the wave equation for electrons and came up with three quantum numbers, each corresponding to a property of atomic orbital. The fourth quantum number was later introduced to clarify the spin of electrons. use(http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=wave+mechanical+model) • Solving the wave equation gives a set of wave functions, or orbitals, and their corresponding energies. • Each orbital describes a spatial distribution of electron density. • An orbital is described by a set of three quantum numbers. © 2009, Prentice-Hall, Inc. Principal Quantum Number (n) • The principal quantum number, n, describes the energy level on which the orbital resides. • The values of n are integers ≥ 1. © 2009, Prentice-Hall, Inc. Angular Momentum Quantum Number (l) • This quantum number defines the shape of the orbital. • Allowed values of l are integers ranging from 0 to n − 1. • We use letter designations to communicate the different values of l and, therefore, the shapes and types of orbitals.

Magnetic Quantum Number (ml) • The magnetic quantum number describes the three-dimensional orientation of the orbital. • Allowed values of ml are integers ranging from -l to l: −l ≤ ml ≤ l. • Therefore, on any given energy level, there can be up to 1 s orbital, 3 p orbitals, 5 d orbitals, 7 f orbitals, etc. © 2009, Prentice-Hall, Inc. Magnetic Quantum Number (ml) • Orbitals with the same value of n form a shell. • Different orbital types within a shell are subshells. © 2009, Prentice-Hall, Inc.

Energies of Orbitals • For a one-electron hydrogen atom, orbitals on the same energy level have the same energy. • That is, they are degenerate. © 2009, Prentice-Hall, Inc. Energies of Orbitals • As the number of electrons increases, though, so does the repulsion between them. • Therefore, in manyelectron atoms, orbitals on the same energy level are no longer degenerate. © 2009, Prentice-Hall, Inc. Spin Quantum Number, ms • In the 1920s, it was discovered that two electrons in the same orbital do not have exactly the same energy. • The “spin” of an electron describes its magnetic field, which affects its energy. © 2009, Prentice-Hall, Inc. Spin Quantum Number, ms • This led to a fourth quantum number, the spin quantum number, ms. • The spin quantum number has only 2 allowed values: +1/2 and −1/2. © 2009, Prentice-Hall, Inc. Pauli Exclusion Principle • No two electrons in the same atom can have exactly the same energy. • Therefore, no two electrons in the same atom can have identical sets of quantum numbers. © 2009, Prentice-Hall, Inc. 5.2 Electron Configurations According to the aufbau principle, electrons occupy the orbitals of lowest energy first. According to the Pauli exclusion principle, an atomic orbital may describe at most two electrons. To occupy the same orbital, two electrons must have opposite spins Hund’s rule states that electrons occupy orbitals of the same energy in a way that makes the number of electrons with the same spin direction as large as possible.

Hund’s Rule “For degenerate orbitals, the lowest energy is attained when the number of electrons with the same spin is maximized.” © 2009, Prentice-Hall, Inc. Periodic Table • We fill orbitals in increasing order of energy. • Different blocks on the periodic table (shaded in different colors in this chart) correspond to different types of orbitals. © 2009, Prentice-Hall, Inc. Some Anomalies Some irregularities occur when there are enough electrons to half-fill s and d orbitals on a given row. © 2009, Prentice-Hall, Inc. Some Anomalies For instance, the electron configuration for copper is [Ar] 4s1 3d5 rather than the expected [Ar] 4s2 3d4. © 2009, Prentice-Hall, Inc. Some Anomalies • This occurs because the 4s and 3d orbitals are very close in energy. • These anomalies occur in f-block atoms, as well. © 2009, Prentice-Hall, Inc. 5.2 Exceptional Electron Configurations Why do actual electron configurations for some elements differ from those assigned using the aufbau principle? – Some actual electron configurations differ from those assigned using the aufbau principle because half-filled sublevels are not as stable as filled sublevels, but they are more stable than other configurations. – Exceptions to the aufbau principle are due to subtle electron-electron interactions in orbitals with very similar energies. – Copper has an electron configuration that is an exception to the aufbau principle.
