Unit 4, Quiz #1
2018-19



Your first quiz of Unit 4 will be on Friday, November 30 and cover material from Chapter 11 of the textbook. Quiz questions will target the following objectives. There will be no calculations on the quiz ... but you might have to do some counting. #MofSTEM


  1. The student should be able to compare relative wavelengths, frequencies and photon energies for various parts of the electromagnetic and visible light spectra and use such information in order to explain how Bohr atomic theory explains the atomic emission spectra of elements.

    Resources: Read Chapter 11.1-5;  Chapter 11.1-5 Reading Guide (pp. 1-2); Light and Energy (p. 3); Bohr's Quantum Model of the Atom (p. 4); Lab AMM1: Elemental Fingerprinting



  2. The student should be able to describe the basic features of Schrodinger's quantum mechanical model; this would include a description of quantum numbers and their meaning, the type, shape and orientation of orbitals, and the number of electrons that can be held by each energy level.

    Resources: Read Chapter 11.6-8;  Chapter 11.6-8 Reading Guide (pp. 5-6); Quantum Mechanical Model of the Atom (pp. 7-8)



  3. The student should be able to write the abbreviated and non-abbreviated electron configuration for an atom or an ion of any element and construct the orbital filling diagrams for such particles and be able to answer questions that express an understanding of the meaning of such representations.

    Resources: Read Chapter 11.9-10; Chapter 11.9-10 Reading Guide (pp. 11-12); Electron Configuration (p. 9); Electron Configuration and Orbital Diagrams (pp. 13-15)



  4. The student should be able to relate the electron configurations of elements to the location of that element within the Periodic Table and to the properties of their atoms, including such properties as atomic size, ionization energy, and electronegativity, etc. ... and to use a model of atomic structure to explain the patterns in the data.

    Resources: Read Chapter 11.11; Electron Configuration and Orbital Diagrams (p. 16 only); Chapter 11.11 Reading Guide (pp. 17-18); Periodic Trends (pp. 19-20); Lab AMM2: It's Periodic
