Title: Electron Configuration

1
Electron Configuration
• Mapping the electrons

2
Electron Configuration
• The way electrons are arranged around the nucleus.

3
Quantum Mechanical Model
• 1920s
• Werner Heisenberg (Uncertainty Principle)
• Louis de Broglie (electron has wave properties)
• Erwin Schrodinger (mathematical equations using
probability, quantum numbers)

4
Heisenberg uncertainty principle
• it is impossible to determine simultaneously both
the position and velocity of an electron or any
other particle with any great degree of accuracy
or certainty.

5
Erwin Schrodinger
• Formulated equation that describes behavior and
energies of subatomic particles.
• Incorporates both particle and wave behavior in
terms of wave function
• is proportional to the probability of
finding an electron.
• Leads to Quantum Mechanics we cannot pinpoint an
electron in an atom but we can define the region
where electrons can be in a particular time
called a Probability map.a 3-dimensional area in
space called an ORBITAL

6
Principal Quantum Number, n
• Indicates main energy levels
• n 1, 2, 3, 4
• Each main energy level has sub-levels

7
Energy Sublevels
• s p d f g

8
• The principle quantum number, n, determines the
number of sublevels within the principle energy
level.

9
Orbital Quantum Number, l(Angular Momentum
Quantum Number)
• Indicates shape of orbital sublevels
• l n-1
• l sublevel
• 0 s
• 1 p
• 2 d
• 3 f
• 4 g

10
Orbital
• The space where there is a high probability that
it is occupied by a pair of electrons.
• Orbitals are solutions of Schrodingers equations.

11
Orbitals
12
Visualizing the orbitals
13
Orbitals in Sublevels
• Sublevel Orbitals electrons
• s 1 2
• p 3 6
• d 5 10
• f 7 14
• g 9 18

14
Three rules are used to build the electron
configuration
• Aufbau principle
• Pauli Exclusion Principle
• Hunds Rule

15
Aufbau Principle
• Electrons occupy orbitals of lower energy first.

-Pauli Exclusion Principle(Wolfgang Pauli,
Austria, 1900-1958)-Electron Spin Quantum Number
• An orbital can hold only two electrons and they
must have opposite spin.
• Electron Spin Quantum Number (ms)
• 1/2, -1/2

19
Hunds Rule
• In a set of orbitals, the electrons will fill the
orbitals in a way that would give the maximum
number of parallel spins (maximum number of
unpaired electrons).
• Analogy Students could fill each seat of a
school bus, one person at a time, before doubling
up.

Notations of Electron Configurations
• Standard
• Shorthand

Standard Notation of Fluorine
Number of electrons in the sub level 2,2,5
1s2 2s2 2p5
Main Energy Level Numbers 1, 2, 2
Sublevels
31
Shorthand Notation
• Use the last noble gas that is located in the
periodic table right before the element.
• Write the symbol of the noble gas in brackets.
• Write the remaining configuration after the
brackets.
• Ex Fluorine He 2s2 2p5
