solid; indestructible; indivisible
Democritus thought the atom was a ... , ... , ... mass.
J.J. Thomson
said that the atomic model did not take into account electrons and protons
electrons; protons
J.J. Thomson said that the atomic model did not take into account ... and ...
Ernest Rutherford
proposed that electrons surrounded a dense, positively charged nucleus and the rest of the atom was empty space
Niels Bohr
said that electrons were arranged in orbits around the nucleus
Niels Bohr
said that electrons in a particular path have a fixed energy
fixed energy
Niels Bohr said that electrons in a particular path have a ... ...
energy level
region around the nucleus where the electron is likely to be moving
Energy levels are more closely spaced the ... the distance from the nucleus.
the higher the energy level, the ... energy the electron has.
amount of energy required to move an electron from one energy level to the next higher one
quantum leap
an abrupt change of energy levels

Pauli Exclusion Principle
for two electrons to occupy the same orbital, they must have opposite spins
orbital pair
two oppositely spinning electrons occupying the same orbital
Hund's Rule
before a second electron can be placed in any orbital, all orbitals of that sublevel must contain at least one electron

excited state
condition of an atom whose electrons are at higher energy levels than the ones they normally occupy
