Spin ms 12 or 12 Direction of e39 spin To describe the electron in an H atom n 1e0me0ms12 Therefore the electron in an H atom is found in the ls orbital Pauli Exclusion Principle No two electrons in an atom can have the same set of four quantum numbers n a me ms No atomic orbital can be assigned more than two electrons so each electron must have a different value of ms To describe the electrons

causes the total energy of the atom to be as low as possible The Rules 1 Electrons are assigned to subshells in order of increasing n e 2 If two subshells with the same value of n e are possible the electrons are assigned first to the subshell with a lower n For Example Electrons are assigned to 2s n e 2 before 2p n e 3 Electrons are assigned to 2p n e 3 before 3s n e 3 because 2p has a lower n value Electrons are assigned to 45 n e 4 before 3d n e 5 because the n Evalue is lower Assigning Electrons to Subshells 6 value 1 n value 0 2 3 so u 8 l n m M ch ox Ln 6P m w v 1 5d 5d 5f ngg V 4df 4f

the 3s orbital Effective Nuclear Charge 2 2 increases across a row of the periodic table As a result elements on the right on the periodic table hold their electrons more tightly It is very difficult

sulfur Sulfur has two unpaired electrons How many valence electrons does an atom of phosphorus have Phosphorus has five valance electrons Would you expect Ti to be paramagnetic or diamagnetic Why Paramagnetic because only two electrons in the cl orbitals Electron Configurations of Ions Once we know the electron configuration of neutral atoms we can determine the configuration of ions When a cation is formed valance electrons are removed from the shell with the highest n value If multiple subshells are possible the electrons are removed from the orbital with the highest 6 value Na ls2 Zs2
