• im in grade nine and there teaching me how to do the lewis way or something theres so many ways i don t know which i should do so i use the lewis way its easyer i think....

• While, It is true that of the two orbitals in the 2nd energy level one is filled (the 2s) all four elctrons in the 2nd EL can participate in valence sharing and so are indicated as unpaired in Lewis structures/Electron Dot diagrams.

### Transcript

• 1. Modeling and Representing Atoms on Paper How to draw Bohr Diagrams and Electron Dot Diagrams (sometimes called Lewis Structures)
• 2. Bohr Diagrams
• Pictographic representation of an Atom
• Shows information about the nucleus
• Electron energy levels
• Good for index cards and flash cards
• 3.
Bohr Diagrams
• 4.
• At the top write the name, Atomic number, Mass number of the element and the atomic mass
Bohr Diagrams Carbon Atomic # = 6 Mass # = 12 Atomic mass = 12.011 amu
• 5.
• Draw a small circle below the text that will represent the nucleus of the atom
Bohr Diagrams
• In the circle write:
• the elemental symbol
• the number of Protons
• the number of Neutrons
Carbon Atomic # = 6 Mass # = 12 Atomic mass = 12.011 amu C 6p + 6n 0
• 6.
• Draw a larger circle around the nucleus circle to represent the first energy level for electrons
Bohr Diagrams Carbon Atomic # = 6 Mass # = 12 Atomic mass = 12.011 amu
• Add more circles outside to include all of the energy levels you need for the atom.
• (Hint: In what period is the element?)
Carbon is in Period two and therefore needs two energy levels C 6p + 6n 0
• 7.
• Now add electrons, as small dots, to each energy level as allowed until you have the proper number of electrons for a neutral element.
Bohr Diagrams Carbon Atomic # = 6 Mass # = 12 Atomic mass = 12.011 amu The number of electrons should be equal to the number of protons. Remember: C 6p + 6n 0 If you need a third level make your circles a little smaller. 8 3 8 2 2 1 # of e - Energy Level
• 8.
• You now have a complete Bohr Diagram
Bohr Diagrams Carbon Atomic # = 6 Mass # = 12 Atomic mass = 12.011 amu C 6p + 6n 0
• 9. Electron Dot Diagrams
• Also called Lewis Structures
• Representation of valence electrons only
• Useful only for “Representative elements”
• Gives some indication of the geometry (shape) of compounds when used for bonding diagrams
• Easy to draw
• 10. Electron Dot Diagrams
• The Elemental Symbol serves as the representation of the nucleus
C
• 11. Electron Dot Diagrams
• Dots are added around the nucleus to show electrons only in the outer energy level
C Carbon has only 4 electrons in the 2 nd energy level so we need only represent those 4 Like the Hund rule add 1 electron per side, then add more as needed.
• 12. Electron Dot Diagrams
• Lewis structures only apply to “Representative elements” (Group A elements)
C Only s and p sublevel electrons in the outer or highest energy level are shown. These are called valence electrons. The maximum number of electrons that can be shown are 8
• 13. Electron Dot Diagrams
• Lewis structures only apply to “Representative elements” (Group A elements)
O The maximum number of electrons that can be shown are 8 Only s and p sublevel electrons in the outer or highest energy level are shown. These are called valence electrons.
• 14. Electron Dot Diagrams
• Lewis structures only apply to “Representative elements” (Group A elements)
Cl The maximum number of electrons that can be shown are 8 Only s and p sublevel electrons in the outer or highest energy level are shown. These are called valence electrons.
• 15. Electron Dot Diagrams
• Lewis structures only apply to “Representative elements” (Group A elements)
Li The maximum number of electrons that can be shown are 8 Only s and p sublevel electrons in the outer or highest energy level are shown. These are called valence electrons.
• 16. Electron Dot Diagrams
• Transition metals don’t have valence electrons. They have Oxidation Numbers
Fe Cu Ag Pb +2 +2 +2 +4 We’ll Talk about Oxidation Numbers Next Week!
