Problem 102

How do we know that the energy levels of the hydrogen atom are not continuous, as physicists originally assumed?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Week #1 o organic chemistry: the study of carbon based molecules and a few other elements (primarily nitrogen, oxygen, and hydrogen) Electron Configuration o Electrons are held in orbitals. o Electron configurations tell us where electrons are located. o example #1: 2 2 2 Carbon: 6 electrons, 1s 2s 2p o example #2: Hydrogen: 1 electron, 1s1 o example #3: 2 2 4 Oxygen: 8 electrons, 1s 2s 2p Lewis Dot Structures o Lewis dot structures help us determine how bonds form between atoms. o These structures deal with valence electrons (the outermost electrons) because these are the electrons involved in bonding. o Atoms are most happy (stable) when they have 8 valence electrons.
