ORBITALS, SHELLS ETC.

Postby Maldonado3K » Sun Oct 22, 2017 12:41 am

What specifically would we have to know for exams (in relation to what we have learned in the past two lectures)? or what will be given?

I think if you do the homework for chapter 2, the questions will be a little similar to what can be on his test.

There are also modules for Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle on the website. The post-module questions are also a good resource to prepare.

I'm pretty sure he gives us a periodic table, but you should try and master electron configuration and the 2 rules we learned in class.

Also, he mentioned in class that for electron configurations, we need to know the s-block, the p-block, and the first row d-block.

Would anyone care to further clarify the difference between a shell, subshell, and orbital, please? I am a little confused on which is which. Sometimes I will hear s subshell and sometimes I hear s orbital.

An atomic orbital is basically the most probable location an electron is going to be located which is based off a wave function. The orbitals are mainly classified by three different quantum numbers the n, l, and ml. The n determines the size and energy of the orbitals this is the defining factor as to what shell an orbital belongs to.There are subshells that exist within each n shell and the l quantum number describes these orbitals such as the s orbital where l=0, the p orbital where l=1, the d orbital where l=2, and the f orbital where l=3.
