Modern Atomic Theory
Terms in this set (11)
When is an electron in an atom likely to move from one energy level to another?
An electron in an atom can move from one energy level to another when the atom gains or loses energy
What model do scientists use to describe how electrons move around the nucleus?
Scientists use the electron cloud model to describe the possible locations of electrons the nucleus
Describe the most stable configuration of the electrons in an atom
The most stable electron configuration is the one in which the electrons are in orbitals with the lowest possible energies
What did Bohr contribute to modern atomic theory?
Bohr contributed a description of the arrangement of electrons in an atom
What does an electron cloud represent?
The most likely locations for electrons in an atom
the possible energies that electrons in an atom can have
a visual model of the most likely locations for electrons in an atom
a region of space around the nucleus where an electron is likely to be found
the arrangement of electrons in the orbitals of an atom
when all the electrons in an atom have the lowest possible energies
What is the electron cloud a good approximation of?
An electron cloud is a good approximation of how electrons behave in their orbital
