  2. the distance between two consecutive wave peaks is the ______________
    wavelength (lambda)
  3. the __________ indicates how many wave peaks pass a certain point per given time period.
    frequency (nu, "v")
  4. a beam of light traveling through space is a stream of tiny packets of energy called _____________
  5. only certain values are allowed (i.e. all hydrogen atoms have the same set of discrete energy levels). They are _______
  6. the ____________ model of the atom describes how the electron's position is represented (not a circular orbit)
    wave mechanical
  7. a representation of the space occupied by an electron in an atom (the probability distribution for the electron) is known as a(n) __________
  8. Red wavelength photons are ________________ while blue wavelengths are ______.

    The wave mechanical model
  10. 1S orbital is the ______________ energy state, the "ground state"
  11. ______________ levels, (represented by n=1, n=2 etc) hold each layer of orbitals (1s, 2s 2p, 3s 3p 3d� etc) within each (n) "electron apartments"
    principle energy levels
  12. principle energy levels are divided into __________, which increase with (n) (such as s, p, d, f)
  13. S sublevel holds ___ electrons max
    2 (1box*2electrons)
  14. P sublevel holds a max of ___ electrons
    6 (3box*2electrons)
  15. D sublevel holds a max of ___ electrons
    10 (5 boxes*2electrons)
  16. F sublevel holds a max of ____ electrons
    14 (7boxes*2electrons)
  17. an atomic orbital can hold a maximum of 2 electrons, and those electrons must have opposite spins. this is the _____ principle
    Pauli exclusion principle
  18. 1s^1 is an example of Hydrogen's ________________
    electron configuration
  19. an orbital diagram/ box diagram would be represented by a box with ____ inside
    arrows ( indicating electron spin)
  20. the electrons in the outermost principle energy level of an atom are _____ electrons-- Important because these are the ones that form bonds
  21. inner electrons of a lower sublevel that do not form bonds are called ___________ electrons
  22. Family 1 & 2 have __ outermost orbitals, while transition metals have __ and Families 3-8 have __ outermost orbital

    ionization energy
  29. (From left to right across a given PT period): what trends occurs? name 3:
    (1) atomic size decreases --which means� (2) nuclear energy increases! & (3) electronegativity increases (up to 4.0)
  30. (From top to bottom across a given Family/Group): what trends occur?
    Atomic size increases (needing larger orbitals to hold greater amounts of electrons)
