Quantum / wave Mechanics
Bohr’s Atom Bohr’s Atomic Theory: Explain 1.The stability of atom as opposed to Rutherford’s atomic model. 2. The formation of line spectrum in hydrogen atom.
Bohr’s atomic postulates ( For H atom)
Electron moves in circular orbit around the nucleus, does not radiate or absorb any energy.
2. The energy at each permitted orbit is quantized (only certain specific quantity is allowed) i.e. energy level with a quantum number, n. Energy of electron at energy level n, E n = - A / n 2 (Bohr equation) where A = Rydberg constant. Note: n = Principle quantum no. ( n = 1, 2, 3… ) identifies and determines the the orbit and energy of its electron.
3. At its normal condition, a H atom is at its ground state ( lowest energy state where n =1) 3. If energy is supplied, an electron may absorb a certain amount of energy to move to a higher energy state called the excited state. 4. Electron at the excited state (i.e. at a higher energy state, E i ) is unstable , tends to return to a lower energy state ( E f ).
In the process, an amount of energy is released as radiant energy (photon, light energy ) given by :
E = E f – E i
E = - A/ n f 2 – (- A./n i 2 ) = A( 1/n i 2 – 1/n f 2 ) ---( 1)
Where A = Rydberg constant
Planck relates energy of a radiation to its frequency by, E = h -------------( 2 ) Where h = Planck constant, = frequency of light
Subst. (2) into (1). Then h = - A/ n f 2 – (- A./n i 2 ) E = A( 1/n i 2 – 1/n f 2 )--------- (i) = E f – E i ----------------------------------------------(ii) Where A = Rch = Rydberg constant = 2.178 x 10 -18 J
But velocity of light (radiation), c = λ x where λ = wavelength & = frequency Hence, E = h x (c/ λ ) Planck relates energy of a radiation to its frequency by, E = h Where h = Planck constant, = frequency of light Planck Equation:

iii. The frequency( ) and wavelength( λ ) of the radiation
= E/h = 4.09 x 10 -19 J /6.63 x 10 -34 J-s = 6.17 x 10 14 s -1
λ = c/ = 3.00 x 10 8 m/s / 6.17 x 10 14 s -1 = 4.86 X 10 -7 m

n refer to the main energy level or electron shell of an electron
Integer value of n = 1, 2, 3,…
relates to the average distance of an electron in a particular orbital from the nucleus of an atom.
larger the n value means higher E level, > average distance of electron from nucleus , > size of orbital, lesser is its stability.

Electronic configuration of the elements describes the arrangement of of electrons, by filling them in the orbitals, of a atom.
2 ways of writing Electronic configuration:
e.g. The only electron of a ground state H atom is 1s 1 , or
3 principles/rules for writing electronic configuration:
Electrons are arranged in atomic orbitals in order of increasing energy. i.e. electrons should occupy lowest energy orbital 1 st before going into the next orbital with higher energy.
e.g. Z Element name elect config. 1 H 1s 1
2 He 1s 2
3 Li 1s 2 2s 1
1s 2s 1s 1s
The order of filling the atomic subshells ( orbitals) are in the foll. Sequence: 1s 2s 2p 3s 3p 3d 4s 4p 4d 4f 5s 5p 5d 5f 6s 6p 6d 7s 7p List the order of increase in energy of the above orbitals. 1s < 2s < 2p <3s < 3p < 4s < 3d < 4p < 5s < 4d < 5p < 6s
No 2 electrons in an atom can have the same 4 quantum numbers.
Electrons in any orbital must have the same values of n, l, ml but cannot have the same values of ms.
e.g. He atom of electronic configuration : 1s 2
Values of: I electron: n =1, l = 0, ml = 0, s = + ½ i.e. ( 1,0, 0, +½ )
Another electron n =1, l = 0, ml = 0, s = - ½ i.e. ( 1,0, 0, -½ )
3. Hund’s Rule: When electrons are added to orbitals of equivalent energy (degenerate orbitals), Each orbital is filled with a single electron of the same spin 1st before it is paired. e.g. The elect.

2. Apply Aufbau Principle : add e - to subshells/ orbitals in order of increasing energy
3. Use Pauli Exclusion Principle: i.e. One orbital can only has 2 e- and their spins must be opposite
4. Follow Hund’s Rule: Each orbital is filled with a single electron of the same spin 1st before it is paired.
