  1. What physics were able to describe all observed macroscopic phenomena?
    "classical physics" of Newton
  2. What kind of physics were able to describe atoms and molecules?
    Quantum Mechanics
  3. The chemical properties of elements and molecules depend on what?
    The arrangement of electrons, electronic structure
  4. You can only describe electronic structure using what?
    Quantum Mechanics
  5. Why does the "classical view" of physics not explain molecular level of chemistry?
    • predicts that all electrons in all atoms collapse into nucleus
    • predicts that all matter would be 100,000 times smaller than it actually is (observed)
  6. Bohr's model of H atome depends on 2 postulates:
    If an electron is in an atom then:
    • It WILL be in a stable orbit (won't lose energy)
    • Its angular momentum, l, can only take certain "quantized" values. Image Upload n = 1, 2, 3...
  7. What is a "quantized property"?
    • Physical property restricted to take only certain values
    • Example: "Quantum number", can only take integer values
  8. Image Upload <---h-bar equals=
    Image Upload

    h represents Planck's constant: 6.62 x10-34 Js
  9. Planck's constant
    6.62 x10-34 Js
  10. Bohr used postulate number one to:
    • Find relation between angular momentum and radius for stable orbit
    • Find electron energy in stable orbit
  11. Energy of electron is proportional to....
    coulomb potential energy and proportional to -1/r
  12. Bohr found for electrons in atoms:
    • Their angular momentum, l, can only take certain values (orbitals)
    • Their total energy can take certain values
