Problem 62E

Many-Electron Atoms and Electron Configurations (Sections)

(a) The average distance from the nucleus of a 3s electron in a chlorine atom is smaller than that for a 3p electron. In light of this fact, which orbital is higher in energy? (b) Would you expect it to require more or less energy to remove a 3s electron from the chlorine atom, as compared with a 2p electron?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Vocabulary ​ Atom: Smallest unit of a chemical element ​ lement: one type of atom Co​ mpound: two or more elements combined ​ Ion: An atom that has gained or lost electrons and therefore has a charge ​ Cation: Positively charged ion ​ Anion: Negatively charged ion ​ Isotope: An atom of an element with a different number of neutrons ​ Mole:​ amount of substance containing the number of atoms as exactly 12 grams of carbon-12 ● Called Avogadro's number ● Equals 6.022 10 23 * ​ Molar Mass: mass (g) per mole of a substance ​ Frequency (ν): number of cycles that pass through in a given period of time 1 −1 ● Units: s or s = Hertz (Hz) ​ Wavelength (λ): Distance between two set points on a wave (ie. Crest to crest) ● Units: meter ​ Amplitude (a): Vertical height of the crest of a wave ● Relates to intensity / brightness Content / Concepts The Atom: ● Smallest unit of an element ● Electrically neutral ● Nucleus is surrounded by electrons Subatomic Particles Particle Symbol Location Charge
