Chapter 11: Modern Atomic Theory
Define the following terms: electromagnetic radiation, wavelength, frequency, photons,
quantized, line spectrum, continuous spectrum, orbital, principal energy levels, sublevels,
electron configuration, orbital diagram, valence electrons, core electrons, representative
elements, metals, nonmetals, metalloids, atomic size, ionization energy
1. Describe the Rutherford model of the atom
The Rutherford model of the atom consists of a centrally located nucleus, which contains most of
the atom’s mass including the positively charged protons and neutral neutrons. Negatively
charged electrons orbit the nucleus in circular paths. The number of protons and electrons is
equal and the atom is mostly empty space.
2. Describe the Bohr model of the atom.
The Bohr model of the atom describes a positively charged nucleus with negatively charged
electrons traveling in circular orbitals, which correspond to distinct energy levels. When
excited, electrons can move to higher energy level orbits.
3. Describe the Wave-mechanical model of the atom
The Wave-mechanical model of the atom treats the electrons as particles, which move in the
form of a wave. The electrons are located outside of the nucleus and travel randomly throughout
atomic orbitals. These orbitals describe regions of space in which the probability of finding an
electron is likely.
4. Draw orbital diagrams for the following elements and determine the number of unpaired
a. Magnesium

12 electrons, 0 unpaired
b. Oxygen
8 electrons, 2 unpaired
c. Aluminum
d. Argon
13 electrons, 1 unpaired
18 electrons, 0 unpaired
e. Scandium
21 electrons, 1 unpaired
5. Write electron configurations for:
a. Lead
b. Nickel 1s22s22p63s23p64s23d8
6. Describe the trends on the periodic table for atomic size and explain why elements follow
these trends.
Atomic Size increases going down a group on the periodic table and decreases going left to
right across the periodic table. As you go down a group the outer electrons are in successively
higher energy levels and, therefore, larger orbitals. As you go left to right across a period,
elements contain outer electrons in the same energy level. However, the number of protons
increases, resulting in a greater attraction for the outer electrons and making the atoms smaller.
7. Describe the trends on the periodic table for ionization energy and explain why elements
follow these trends.
Ionization energy increases as you go up a group on the period table and left to right
across the periodic table. Moving up a group, the I.E. increases because outer electrons are
in smaller orbitals and, therefore, closer to the nucleus and held more strongly. As you go
left to right, the I.E. increases because the number of protons in the nucleus is increasing.
This results in a greater positive charge that attracts outer electrons.
It can also be explained in terms of size. The smaller the atom is, the larger the
ionization energy. As atoms get smaller the outer electrons can be closer to the nucleus and
attracted strongly to the nucleus.
