Presentation Transcript

  1. Chapter 2 Atomic Structure • Basic Quantum Mechanics • Subatomic Particles • The Electron • J. J. Thomson credited with the discovery in 1897 • Previously, atoms were believed to be the smallest particles • William Morgan (1785)—passed current through a vacuum Produced a glow • Luigi Galvani (1800)—first produced constant current from a battery Cu (wet salt solution) Sn Ecell = +0.48 V • Michael Faraday (1836)—determines glow comes from the cathode • Eugene Goldstein (1876)—coins the term “cathode ray” • Thomson finds electron is negatively charged with 1/1836 mass of H

  2. Thomson’s Experiment • Repulsion from negative pole of an electric field meant that the cathode rays must be negatively charged • The amount of deflection was a function of the mass of the “ray” • Since many different metals all produced the same “cathode rays,” all atoms must be made up of the same +/- particles • G. F. FitzGerald renames cathode rays as Electrons

  3. The Nucleus • Ernest Rutherford credited with discovering the Nucleus in 1911 • He nuclei (a particle) were deflected as they passed through a Gold foil • Conclusion: Heavy, tiny nucleus and much empty space in an atom

  4. The Proton • Rutherford and Moseley quickly discovered the charge of the nucleus • Electron beams aimed at an element caused X-rays to be emitted • The square root of the X-ray frequency emitted had a linear relationship with about half of the atomic mass of the element • This number was clearly Z, the nuclear charge (or the atomic number) • Atomic Spectra • Balmer described the emission spectrum of H in 1885 • . • . • n = principle quantum number = discrete allowed energies for H electrons nh = integer > 2 RH = Rydberg constant = 1.097 x 107 m-1 • h = Planck’s constant = 6.626 x 10-34 J s • = frequency of light s-1 c = speed of light = 2.998 x 108 m/s • = wavelength nm = wavenumber cm-1

  5. Bohr’s Quantum Theory of the Atom (1913) • Negative electrons move in stable, circular orbits around positive nuclei • Electrons absorb or emit light by moving out or moving in to other orbits • Bohr replaced Balmer’s equations with better ones • Energy levels are far apart at small n, close together at large n n =  if the nucleus and electron are completely separate • Only worked for H-atom; not a complete description of atomic structure m = reduced mass E = electron charge Z = nuclear charge 4peo = permittivity of vacuum

  6. Hydrogen Atom Energy Levels

  7. h = Planck’s constant m = mass of the particle v = velocity of the particle • Wave nature of particles: de Broglie (1924) • De Broglie Equation relates particles to a property of waves • Massive (visible) particles have short wavelengths that can’t be observed; we call these classical particles that obey classical mechanics • Small particles (electrons) have observable wave properties • Electrons around nuclei are like standing waves • Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle (1927) • Heisenberg’s equation relates position and velocity • The better you know velocity (p), the worse you can know position (x) Dp , then Dx and vice versa • Can’t exactly describe e- orbits, only orbitals, which are regions of space where of high probability of finding e- in it • Can’t describe e- as a particle, since we don’t know its location exactly p = momentum = mv

  8. The Schrödinger Equation • Describes wave properties of electrons: position, mass, total E, potential E • Y = wave function = describes an electron wave in space = describes atomic orbital • The Schrödinger Equation: • When H is carried out on Y , the result is E times Y (E is a constant) • Different orbitals have different Y and consequently, different E’s • The Hamiltonian Operator = H H = the Hamiltonian Operator = calculus operation on Y E = energy of the electron Kinetic Energy part Potential Energy part

  9. Definitions • h = Planck’s constant • m = mass of the particle • E = total energy of the system • e = charge of electron • (x2 + y2 + z2)1/2 = r = distance to nucleus • Z = charge of the nucleus • 4peo = permittivity of vacuum • Applied to Y: • V = potential E = electrostatic attraction between electron/nucleus • Define attractive force = negative energy • Closer to nucleus = large –V; farther from nucleus = small –V • if r = , then V = 0

  10. There are any number of solutions to the Schrödinger equation, each describing an electron in an atomic orbital: 1s, 2s, 2px, 2py…. • The meaning of Y • Y has no physical meaning itself, it is just a mathematical expression • Y2 = probability of finding the electron at a given point in space • If you consider all space, Y2 = 100% • Consider where the electron is 90% of the time, Y2 = atomic orbital (1s) • Physical Reality imposes some conditions on what Y can be • Y must have only one value because a given electron only has one energy b)Y and dY must be continuous because the electron can’t “jump” c) Y ----> 0 as r ---->  because the probability must decrease farther away d) The total probability of finding the electron somewhere must = 1 • Normalization = setting values to 1 8) All orbitals are orthoganal (perpendicular): Y* is used to make imaginary Y real just use Y2 if not imaginary dt = dx + dy +dz

  11. Applications of the Schrödinger Equation • A Particle in a Box • A one-dimensional box is a simple case for using the Schrödinger Equation • V(x) = 0 inside the box, between x = 0 and x = a • V(x) =  outside the box • The Particle can never leave the box • Apply the Schrödinger Equation: • Solve the Schrödinger Equation • sine/cosine describe waves, so we will make a combination of these functions • Substitute into the Schrödinger Equation and solve for r and s A,B,r,s = constants

  12. Apply conditions of the particle in a box • Y must go to 0 at x = 0 and x = a • cos sx = 1 for x = 0 • Y = 0 only if B = 0 • Y = A sin rx • At x = a, Y = 0, so sin ra = 0 • Only possible if ra = np (n = integer) • ra = np • Keep only the + values (+/- give same results) • Substitute and solve for E

  13. These are the energy levels predicted by the Particle in a Box Solutions • Quantized: n = 1,2,3,4…. • Substitute r = np/a into the wave equation • Normalization leads to a more complete solution: • Total solution: • Plotting the wave functions • Classical Mechanics: particle has equal probability anywhere in the box • Quantum Mechanics: high and low probabilities at different locations

  14. Wave Functions and their Squares for the Particle in a Box with n = 1, 2, and 3
