  1. AP Chemistry Chapter 5 Models of the Atom

  2. Beginning of the Atomic Model

  3. Democritus was the early (around 400BC) Greek philosopher who is credited with the concept of the atom (atomos) –which means invisible

  4. Dalton(around 1800AD) is an English school teacher who proposed the law of conservation of mass, the law of definite proportions, and the law of multiple proportions. His many experiments with gases proved these laws are true, if atoms exist. Dalton is also known as the Father of the (Modern) Atomic Theory

  5. Dalton’s atomic theory: • All matter is composed of very small particles called atoms • Atoms of a given element are identical in size, mass, and other properties; atoms of different elements differ in these properties.

  6. Atoms cannot be subdivided, created, or destroyed • 4.Atoms of different elements combine in simple whole-number ratios to form chemical compounds. • 5.In chemical reactions, atoms are combined, separated, or rearranged.

  7. Two aspects of Dalton’s atomic theory proven to be incorrect: • We now know atoms are divisible. • b. Atoms of the same element can have different masses.

  8. Atom --smallest particle of an element that retains the properties of that element.

  9. J. J. Thomson is the man credited with the discovery of the electrons in the late 1800’s, using cathode ray tubes

  10. Millikan calculated the mass of the electron (very, very small)

  11. Knowledge of electrons led to two inferences about atomic structure: 1.Because atoms are electrically neutral, they must contain positive charge to balance the negative electrons. 2. Because electrons have so little mass, atoms must contain other particles to account for most of their mass

  12. Nucleus of the atom—discovered by Lord Ernest Rutherford Gold foil experiment—actually done by Hans Geiger and Ernest Marsden

  13. Observations: • Majority of the alpha (α)particles penetrated foil undeflected. • b.About 1 in 20,000 were slightly deflected • c.About 1 in 20,000 were deflected back to emitter

  14. Conclusions: 1. Mass of the atom and the positive charge are concentrated in small regions called nucleus • Most of the atom is empty • 3.Magnitude of charge on the nucleus is different for different atoms

  15. 4. Number of electrons outside the nucleus = number of units of nuclear charge (to account for the fact that the atom is electrically neutral) Atoms are electrically neutral because they contain equal numbers of protons and electrons

  16. A couple years later Rutherford presented evidence for a neutral particle which was also in the nucleus and contained a similar mass to that of a proton – called a neutron

  17. Mass of one proton = mass of neutron = mass of 1837 electrons Thus the total mass of an atom is basically the sum of the protons and neutrons, called the atomic mass or mass number, abbreviated A

  18. Atomic number—the number of protons in the nucleus of the atom. --number of protonsidentifies the element and is equal to the number of electrons (of a neutral atom) --symbol is Z

  19. Isotopes are atoms of the same element that have different masses because they have different numbers of neutrons but they still have similar chemical properties

  20. Isotopes of Carbon

  21. Isotopes of Carbon

  22. Nuclide is the general term for any isotope of any element

  23. Nuclide is the general term for any isotope of any element Atomic Mass Unit (amu) is exactly 1/12 the mass of a carbon-12 atom

  24. Average atomic mass is the weight average of the atomic masses of the naturally occurring isotopes of an element. Ave. Atomic mass = %abundace(mass of isotope 1) + %abundance(mass of isotope 2) +…..

  25. Example: Element Sciencium has two isotopes. Sciencium-301 has an abundance of 59.5%, and Sciencium-304 is the other. What is the average atomic mass? 301amu x .595 = 179 amu 304amu x .405 = 123 amu 302 amu

  26. Unstable Nuclei and Radioactive Decay

  27. 1) When referring to nuclear reactions people commonly think of nuclear fission (the splitting of large atoms into smaller pieces)

  28. 1) and nuclear fusion (the combining of small atoms into one large one), but on earth these reactions do not occur naturally.

  29. 2) Naturally occurring nuclear reactions result from the unusual number of neutrons of an isotope which makes it unstable (unusually high in energy). This often results in the isotope changing from one element into another element in an attempt to become more stable (lower in energy).

  30. These reactions are called nuclear reactions, as they involve changes in the nucleus. • During these nuclear reactions, rays and particles are given off, which is called radiation.

  31. C) Sometimes an unstable nucleus will change into many different elements as it tries to become more stable. This is called radioactive decay.

  32. 3) When radioactive decay occurs, there are three different types of radiation that can be given off. Each type has a different mass, and sometimes a charge.

  33. A) The first type of radiation to be discovered was called alpha radiation and came from alpha particles.

  34. Because the mass numbers must be equal, • 226 = 222 + x. So the mass of the alpha particle must be 4.

  35. Because the atomic numbers must be equal, • 88 = 86 + x. So the atomic number of the alpha particle must be 2.

  36. iii) The element Helium has a mass of 4 and an atomic number of 2, so the alpha particle is just like a helium atom without any electrons;

  37. B) The second type of radiation to be discovered was called beta radiation and came from beta particles.

  38. i) Because the mass numbers must be equal, 14 = 14 + x. So the mass of the beta is zero.

  39. ii) Because the atomic numbers must be equal, 6 = 7 + x. So the atomic number must be -1.

  40. iii) The electron has a mass of zero and a charge of -1, so the beta particle is just like an electron; 0 β -1

  41. C) The last type of radiation to be discovered was called gamma radiation and came from gamma particles.

  42. Because the mass numbers must be equal, • 238 = 234 + 4 + x. So the mass of the gamma particle must be zero.

  43. ii) Because the atomic numbers must be equal, 92 = 90 + 2 + x. So the atomic number must also be zero.

  44. iii) The gamma particle was the last to be found because it has no mass and no charge; γ 0 0

  45. The Development of a New Atomic Model

  46. Section 1 Previously, Rutherford reshaped our thoughts of the atom by showing the protons were located in the nucleus of the atom, but he could not model for us where the electrons were, other than outside the nucleus somewhere. Fortunately, studies into the properties of light and the effects of light on matter soon gave clues to where electrons actually are.

  47. Light is a small part of all the radiation (something that spreads from a source) called electromagnetic radiation. Electromagnetic radiation is energy in the form of waves (of electric and magnetic fields). Electromagnetic radiation includes radio waves, microwaves, infrared, visible light, X-rays, and Gamma rays. All these together are considered the Electromagnetic Spectrum.

  48. As all the forms of electromagnetic radiation are waves, they all have similar properties. • All electromagnetic radiation travels at the speedoflight (c), 299,792,458 m/s (3 x 108) in a vacuum
