Electronic Structure of Atoms Problem Set
This problem set was developed by S.E. Van Bramer for Chemistry 145 at Widener University.
- Calculate E for several different transitions, and relate to wavelength.
- For Lyman line n=1 to n=2
- For Balmer line n=2 to n=4
- Ionization of H n=1 to n=&inf;
- Compare the three different types of radioactive particles. What are the differences between these particles?
- Based upon the wavelength information given in figure 211, calculate the energy in J mol-1 for gamma rays, X- rays, and Radio Waves.
- Based upon the Bohr model of an atom, what would happen for atoms other than Hydrogen? Helium and Lithium for example?
- Make a table with the four quantum numbers (n, l, ml, ms) for the valence electrons in the following atoms. a) N, b) O, c) P, d) F1-
- Which element could have a ground state valence shell electron in the following orbital.
- 2px, 2py, and 2pz
- Write the electron configuration ([Ne] 3s2, 3p4) for the following:
- Make an energy level diagram that shows the electron energies in the following: a) F b) F1- c) N d) N3- e) Si
- Calculate the energy (kJ/mol) and wavelengths responsible for the Balmer series of Hydrogen emission lines.
- Explain the following trends in the periodic table. Use data from tables in your book to produce a graph that shows these trends.
- Atomic Radius
- Ionic Radius
- Ionization Energy
- Electron Affinity
