Unit 11: Quantum Theory
Key Learning Targets
Define electromagnetic radiation and describe the electromagnetic spectrum. Perform calculations relating the wavelength, frequency, and photon energy of light base on the equations: C=ln and E=hn Draw the model of the atom proposed by Bohr and describe how it explains the hydrogen emission spectrum. Explain the significance of the deBroglie equation and perform calculations using it: l = h/mn Describe waveparticle duality of matter and light. Describe the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle and its implications for atomic structure. State the contribution of Schroedinger to quantum theory. Describe electrons within an atom based on the Quantum Mechanical Model of the atom. Identify the four quantum numbers as relating to energy levels, sublevels, orbitals and spin Write complete and condensed electron configurations of atoms and ions. Explain the electron configuration of atoms and ions using the Period Table. Write orbital diagrams of atoms by applying Aufbau’s Principle, Hund’s Rule and the Pauli Exclusion Principle.
