Atomic Structure & Theory Atomic Structure & Theory Notes The The Natural world is Understandable Science Demands Evidence Science is a Blend of Logic & Imagination Scientific Knowledge is Durable

Nature of Science Theory = used to explain complex natural processes. Scientific Law = often use mathematical formulas to show relationships and make predictions about the natural world. A description of what happens. Subject to Change Scientists Attempt to Avoid Bias Science is a complex social activity. Scientific Method Question/Problem/Observation Hypothesis an EDUCATED Guess proposed reason for what is observed Experiment

To test hypothesis. Create a controlled experiment with one experimental variable, constants, and controls. Quantitative Data = numeric data. Qualitative Data = nonnumeric data. Analyze Data Create Graphs, Perform calculations Etc. Conclusion Compare experimental results with hypothesis. Create a new hypothesis. Observation Hypothesis

Experiment Law Non linear nature of science video Theory Observation Versus Inference An observation is the gathering of information by using our five senses: sight, smell, hearing, taste, touch

Qualitative- Quality = descriptive Ex. The shirt is blue. Quantitative- Quantity = numerical Ex. The flower has 7 petals. An inference is something a scientist thinks is true, based on observations or evidence. They are based on your past experiences and prior knowledge. Inferences often change when new observations are made. Examples: Observation vs Inference Examples: Observation: The grass on the playground is wet. Possible inferences: It

rained. The sprinkler was on. There is morning dew on the grass. Observation: The line at the water fountain is long. Possible inferences: It's hot outside. The students just came in from EARLY MODELS Of THE ATOM I. The Greek Philosophers A. Around 450 BC a Greek philosopher, Democritus proposed the all matter is actually composed of tiny, indivisible particles, which he called atomos. B.

At the same time Aristotle and other philosophers did not agree. They thought that if matter were made up of tiny particles it would fall apart. Aristotle's view made more sense at the time, so it prevailed for 21 centuries. II. Late 1700's A. Law of Conservation of Matter (Antoine Lavoisier) Matter can neither be created nor destroyed in a chemical reaction Example: 16 X + 8 Y 8YX2 Mass Mass Atoms Atoms

B. Law of Constant Composition A given compound always contains the same elements in the same proportions by mass. Example: H2O is always 11.1 % hydrogen and 88.9 % oxygen; no matter how much water there is. Same proportions of H & O Same proportions of H & O (by mass)

Now thats High Quality H2O C.Law of Multiple Proportions -Applies to different compounds made from the same elements. -The mass ratio for one of the elements that combines with a fixed mass of the other element can be expressed in small whole #s Examples: H2O : 2 H + 1 O (2:1) H2O2 : 2 H + 2 O (2:2) Summary of John Dalton's Atomic Theory (180

1) Each element is composed of extremely small particles called atoms, which are identical in their chemical properties. 2) All atoms of a given element are identical, but they differ from those of any other element. 3) Atoms of different elements combine in simple whole number ratios to form chemical compounds. 4) Atoms are neither created nor destroyed when they are combined, separated or

rearranged in a chemical reaction. Dalton's Model of the Atom (1803) Solid Sphere Model. Nothing smaller = no subatomic particles JJ Thomson's Model Experimented with cathode rays He concluded that there were negatively charged particles he called electrons. The "Plum Pudding" or "Raisin Bun" model. Like a ball of chocolate chip cookie dough.Choc. Chips = electronsDough = positive charge Raisins (electrons) dispersed throughout positive dough. Skip Picture

Back Plum Pudding Model raisins = eSoft pudding-like dough = positive charge The Charge on the electron Robert Millikan discovered the numerical charge on the electron using the oil drop experiment

Lord Ernest Rutherford's Model (1909) Gold Foil experiment When Rutherford directed a beam of positive particles at a thin gold foil, most of the particles passed through unaffected, but a small fraction deflected in all directions. The small number that were deflected indicated that most of the atom was empty space. Rutherford concluded that the positive charge of the atom was concentrated in a small compact nucleus. Back to Rutherford Rutherfords Experiment Back to Rutherford

Rutherfords experiment Back to Rutherford Nuclear Model Model called the "Nuclear atom" Positive charge concentrated in the nucleus, w/ e- moving around it. Atom is mostly empty space Positive Particles in nucleus later called protons If this dot were the nucleus of an atom, the atom would have the diameter of a football field. The nucleus is very tiny compared with the rest of the atom. Discovery of the Neutron

James Chadwick (1932) discovered a particle with no charge and a mass equal to a proton-he called it a neutron. Neils Bohr Planetary MODEL Experimented on Hydrogen proposed that e- in an atom can reside only in certain energy levels or orbitals The rungs on a ladder are similar to the energy levels within an atom. A person can move up or down the ladder only by standing on its rungs; it is impossible to stand

What holds nucleus together? Nuclear Tug-Of-War Electrostatic force like charges repel and unlike charges attract + + + Strong Nuclear Force holds nucleons (p+ & n0) together, very strong nuclear force but over short distances Stable nuclei are SMALL Large nuclei tend to be unstable (radioactive)

Where do Atoms Come From? Fusion = smaller atoms combine to form larger atoms (stars & supernovas) Fission = large atoms split (atomic bombs, nuclear reactors) Why dont electrons fly off? Electrostatic Holds Force

electrons on atom Nuclear Pull: + nucleus pulls electrons towards itself. More charge = more attraction Increases Counting Particles in Atoms Notes Atomic Number = (smaller #) = # of p+ = unique for each element Atomic Mass Number = mass of an atom = p+ & n (e- have no mass)

Complete heavy atomic Mass Shorthand Symbol top Sym Atomic # Example: Counting e Atoms are neutral so, p+ = e(assume an atom is neutral unless a charge is written) Ions = charged atoms (lost or gained e-) (charge in upper right hand corner )

Cation = positive atom (lost e-) Anion = negative atom (gained e-) Neutrons Isotopes = atoms of the same element with diff. numbers of n and atomic masses Sym-mass 13 U-235 H-3 C-14 C 6

The number is the atomic mass Formulas: # of p+ = Atomic Number # of n = Atomic Mass Atomic Number # of e- = Atomic Number charge Examples: 35 Cl 1 17 Mg+2 19 F

9 1 Average Atomic Mass All masses are based on the mass of C = 12 amu (atomic mass unit) Relative to Carbon Relative Atomic Mass Use mass spectrometer

Average Atomic Mass Weighted average of the masses of the isotopes of that element Reflects relative abundance of isotopes in nature Problem #1: Carbon To calculate the average atomic weight, each exact atomic weight is multiplied by its percent abundance (expressed as a decimal). Then, add the results together and round off to an appropriate number of significant figures. mass number exact weight percent abundance

12 12.000000 98.90 13 13.003355 1.10 This is the solution for carbon: (12.000000) (0.9890) + (13.003355) (0.0110) = 12.011 amu . Average Atomic Mass =

[abundance * mass]abundance * mass] (sum of) EX: 29Cu 69.1 % 63 65 29 Cu 30.9 % (63 * 0.691) = (65 * 0.309) = 63.618 Try These Problem #3: Chlorine

types of atoms spontaneously change because they are unstable. They eject sub particles or emit energy and are transformed into different types of atoms. Atoms that are changed in this way are called radioactive, and the transformation process is called radioactive decay. Products of Decay Natural Decay Products - there are three major products emitted by the decay of naturally occurring radioactive isotopes.

Multiply the mass by for each life that passes (or divide by 2) Estimating the AGE of Materials Radioactive carbon-14 atoms are used to estimate the age of materials that were once living. Living things all have the same ratio of radioactive carbon to ordinary carbon. Once something dies, the amount of C-14 begins to decrease. The ratio of C-14 to C-12 can be used to determine its age. Radioactive uranium is used to date nonorganic material such as rocks.

Examples of half Life 1. How much of a 10.0 g sample of I131 is left after 48 days? (1/2 life = 8 days) 2. After how many days will a 24 g sample decay to 3.0 g? 3. After 95 days, a 24 g sample of radioactive material decays, leaving 0.75g. What is the half-life of this material? Periodic Law (Periodicity) Properties repeat at regular
