CP29 – Study Period



  • Wednesday, Novemebr 1st

Test Questions

  • Q1 – CER & Atomic Theories
  • Q2 – Emission Spectrum

  • Q4 – Orbital Theory

Objectives for the Test

  • Compare the major atomic model theories: Thomson, Rutherford and Bohr
  • Explain the experimental basis for the Thomson, Rutherford, and Bohr models.
  • Explain the relationship between emission spectra and electron energy levels
  • Explain the differences between electrons located in different orbitals: orbital energy level, orbital shape, orbital orientation, electron spin

  • Write the full electron configurations of an atom or ion.
  • Determine the electronic configurations of isoelectronic species
  • Explain the relationship between electron configurations and the periodic table
  • Predict the number of valence electrons of an element and its electron configuration based on its position in the periodic table.
