Title: Looking back at Electrons in Atoms

Looking back at Electrons in Atoms
Chemistry documented materials to restore health
(pharmacy). Atoms and elements were recognized
during 16th to 18th centuries. The discovery of
electrons in 1897 showed that there were more
fundamental particles present in the (Dalton)
atoms. Fourteen years later, Rutherford
discovered that most of the mass of an atom
resides in a tiny nucleus whose radius is only
1/100000 of that of an atom. In the mean time,
Max Planck (1858-1947) theorized that light beams
were made of photons that are equivalent to
particles of wave motion.

Discovery of Electrons

mass ratio for electrons in 1897. Robert
Millikans oil-drop experiment determined the
charge of electrons. Thus both the charge and
mass are known

Explain wave motions
Wavelength, Frequency, and Speed
Electromagnetic waves are due to the oscillations
of electro- and magnetic-fields. Wavelength (l)
the diagram shows one whole wave, and note the
wavelength (in m, cm, nm, pm). Frequency (n) is
the number of waves passing a single point per
unit time (s1 or Hz) . Speed of light
Be able to apply n c / l l c / n c l

Frequency, Wavelength Wave-numbers
A typical red light has a wavelength of 690 nm.
What is its frequency? Solution c 3e8 m s1
n ----- ------------------
__________s1 l 690e9 m By the way, the
wave_number is the number of waves per unit
length. 1wave_number --- __________ m1
Momentum of Photons
For a particle with restmass mo, its relative
mass m when moving with a velocity of u relative
to the speed of light c is mo m
----------------- ?1 (u/c)2 Light
particles, photons, have zero rest mass, travel
at the speed c. From this relationship, the
momentum of the photon, p, (Text p309) is h
p ------- ?where h is the Plancks
constant, and is the wavelength. Momentum in any
collision is conserved.
Superposition of Waves
A sine function y1 sin x is a typical wave
function. Plot y1 vs. x Plot y2 sin x. When
the two waves combine, what happens? y1
y2 y1 y2
Combination or superposition of waves is called
Radiation spectra
There are three types of spectra Continuous
spectrum (generated by hot solid) Line spectrum
(generated by hot gas, atoms) Absorption spectrum
(continuous spectrum with black lines)
Give the name of the spectrum from a known source
The Electromagnetic Spectrum
Hydrogen Emission Spectrum
The visible spectra of H consists of red (656.3
nm) green, (486.1 nm), blue, (343.0 nm), indigo
(410.1 nm), and violet (396.9 nm) lines.

Atomic Spectroscopy
The study of light emitted by or absorbed by
atoms is called atomic spectroscopy (AA). It
offers qualitative and quantitative analysis of
samples, because each element has a unique set of
lines. The simplest form is identify elements by
flame color.
Atomic spectroscopy can be dividedinto emission
and absorption spectroscopy, (AES and AAS).
Max Plancks Photon
Max Planck (1858 1947) proposed that light
consists of little quanta of energy, and he
called them photons. The energy of the photon E,
is proportional to its frequency n. E h n The
proportional constant h is now known as Planck
constant, h 6.62606876e-34 J s1, a universal
constant. His proposal or assumption was made
while studying the radiation from hot (black)
Know relationships among frequency, n,
wavelength, l, wave number, speed, c, and energy
E. Given one, be able to calculate the others.

The Photoelectric Effect
In 1888, Hertz discovered that electrons are
emitted when light strikes a metal surface
photoelectric effect. In 1905, Einstein observed
and explained electrons are emitted only when
light frequency exceeds a particular value no,
he called these values threshold number of
electrons emitted is proportional to the
intensity of light kinetic energies of emitted
electrons depend on the frequency, n, not the
intensity of light See science.uwaterloo.ca/cchi
eh/cact/c120/quantum.html for photoelectric effect
Einsteins Experiment
Kinetic energy of electron (½ m u 2) is measured
by retarding potential Vs. ½ m u 2 e Vs Vs is
proportional to the light frequency, but
unrelated to light intensity. The frequency n
must be greater than certain threshold no, which
is metal dependent. Vs k (n no ) k n

A typical problem
Radiation with wavelength of 200 nm causes
electron to be ejected from the surface of a
metal. If the maximum kinetic energy of electrons
is 1.5e-19 J, what is the lowest frequency of
radiation that can be used to dislodge electrons
from the surface of nickel? Solution Energy of

continuous) Quantity of energy in photon E h

Be able to calculate energy of photons, E,

The Bohr Atom
Bohr tried to interpret the hydrogen spectrum by
applying Plancks quantum hypothesis and
Rutherfords atom, and he postulated The e
revolves around the nucleus (Rutherfords
atom) The electron has a set of allowed orbits
(angular momentum n h/2p, where n is an
integer) that are stable. Electron changes from
one state to another by absorbing or emitting a
photon. From Newtons physics, he showed the
energy level of the electron to be E n

Louis de Broglie (1892-1987)Nobel laureate 1929
When in 1920 I resumed my studies ... what
attracted me ... to theoretical physics was ...
the mystery in which the structure of matter and
of radiation was becoming more and more enveloped
as the strange concept of the quantum, introduced
by Planck in 1900 in his researches into
black-body radiation, daily penetrated further
into the whole of physics.

Validity of Particle-Wave Duality
Electrons are usually considered particles. In
1927, a Davisson and Germer observed electron
diffraction by Ni surface. Low energy electron
diffraction (LEED) uses a beam of 30-to-300 eV
electrons to bombard a sample a diffraction
pattern is shown.
Example of a LEED pattern from the Si(111)77
The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle
When electrons are considered particles, we
should be able to measure their positions (x) and
momenta (p) accurately, but Heisenberg showed
that is not the case. The arguments seem complex,
but the result is simple. The uncertainty of
position Dx and uncertainty in momentum Dp has
this relationship Dx Dp gt
The implications the position (location) is
fussy if we know the energy accurately. We are
concerned with the energy more than we are with
location probability of finding the electron
correlates to orbital (not orbit)
Read the arguments for the uncertainty principle.

Standing Waves
A traveling wave can be of any wavelength. The
boundaries restrict a standing wave to some
integer times the half-wavelength as illustrated
by the 1-dimensional diagram. Note that the
points at the boundary are fixed.
Wavelength in Standing Waves
For standing waves with both ends fixed in a
length L, the wavelength l is limited to (where n
is an integer) l n 1, 2, 3, . In
quantum mechanics, electrons in atoms are treated
as standing waves confined by the electric field
due to the atomic nuclei. Thus, the electrons are
represented by wave functions. The wave, energy
etc are called state of the electron, and with
spin, each state accommodate 2 electrons. A state
is called an orbital (not orbit)

Electron Spins
Stern-gerlach experiment In a magnetic field, a
beam of electrons splits into two beams, and a
beam of atoms are also splits into two beams. The
interpretation of this observation came after
some years is due to the spin of electrons, thus
a fourth quantum number s. For an applet

Electronic Configurations of Atoms
Electrons go to the lowest possible energy levels
(minimize the energy of the atom). Paulis
exclusion principle No two electrons in an atom
may have all four quantum numbers alike Hunds
rule electrons occupy singly in orbitals of
identical energy (degenerate orbitals p 3, d
5, f 7 etc.) The aufbau (build-up) process
illustrate this process during lecture and urge
students to do it. Understand the energy level is
the key.

electronic configurations from the periodic table
