Objective - Today you will learn to describe and identify the characteristics of protons, neutrons and electrons in terms of location, charge
- illustrate the structure of the atom by using the Bohr model, including the charge, relative
mass and location of the sub-atomic particles.
- use atomic mass, atomic number, and charge to identify neutral atoms, ions, and isotopes.
- analyze the structure of the atom and describe the characteristics of the particles found there.
- describe electron configurations for the first twenty elements.
- describe electron configurations for all elements and justify exceptions. (H)
- distinguish between the nucleus and electron cloud.
- identify the atomic number and average atomic mass given the periodic table.
- identify isotopes of an element based on number of neutrons and/or atomic mass.
- calculate numbers of protons, neutrons and electrons for atoms given mass and the periodic
- write nuclide symbols and names that identify specific isotopes.
- calculate atomic mass and express it in atomic mass units.
- describe the characteristics of a neutral atom.
- compare the characteristics of the neutral atom to its ion.
- calculate an element's average atomic mass. (H)
