STRUCTURE OF THE ATOM
CLASS :- IX
MADE BY :- MAINAK MITRA,
JOYCHOWDHURY,
SOHAM PAUL
SCHOOL :- HEM SHEELA MODEL SCHOOL
1a) CHARGED PARTICLES IN MATTER :-
Atoms have three types of sub atomic particles. They are electrons,
protons and neutrons.
Electrons are negatively charged (e-
), protons are positively charged
(p+
) and neutrons have no charge (n).
The mass of an electron is 1/2000 the mass of a hydrogen atom. The
mass of a proton is equal to the mass of a hydrogen atom and is taken as
1 unit. The mass of a neutron is equal to the mass of a hydrogen atom
and is and is taken as 1 unit.
b) DISCOVERY OF SUBATOMIC PARTICLES :-
In 1900, J.J.Thomson discovered the presence of the negatively
charged particles called electrons in the atom.
In 1886, E.Goldstein discovered new radiations in gas discharge and
called them canal rays. These rays were positively charged. This later
led to the discovery of the positively charged particles called protons in
the atom.
In 1932 Chadwick discovered the presence of particles having no
charge in the atom called neutrons.
2) Structure of an atom :-
a) Thomson’s model of an atom :-
According to Thomson an atom is similar to a Christmas pudding. The
pudding had positive charge and the electrons having negative charge
were like plums on the pudding.
He proposed that :-
i) An atom consists of a positively charged sphere and the electrons are
embedded in it.
ii) The negative and positive charges are equal in magnitude So the atom
as a whole is electrically neutral.
b) Rutherford’s model of an atom :-
Rutherford’s alpha scattering experiment :-
Rutherford allowed a beam of fast moving alpha particles ( α –
particles) having positive charge to fall on a thin gold foil. He observed
that :-
i) Most of the α – particles passed straight through the gold foil.
ii) Some of the α – particles were slightly deflected by small angles.
iii) Very few α – particles appeared to rebound.
Conclusions from Rutherford’s alpha scattering
experiment :-
i) Most of the space inside an atom is empty. (because most of the α –
particles passed straight through the gold foil.)
ii) The atom had a small nucleus having positive charge. ( because
some of the α – particles having positive charge were slightly
deflected by small angles.)
iii) The size of the nucleus is very small compared to the size of the
atom. (because very few α – particles appeared to rebound and
most of the positive charge and mass of the atom is in the nucleus.)
Rutherford’s model of an atom :-
i) An atom has a positively charged nucleus at its centre and most of
the mass of the atom is in the nucleus.
ii) The electrons revolve around the nucleus in different orbits.
iii) The size of the nucleus is very small compared to the size of the
atom.
Defects of Rutherford’s model of the atom :-
Any particle in a circular orbit would undergo acceleration
and during acceleration the charged particle would radiate
energy. So the revolving electrons would lose energy and fall
into the nucleus and the atom would be unstable. We know
that atoms are stable.

c) Bohr’s model of an atom :-
i) An atom has a positively charged nucleus at its centre and most of
the mass of the atom is in the nucleus.
ii) The electrons revolve around the nucleus in special orbits called
discrete orbits.
iii) These orbits are called shells or energy levels and are represented
by the letters K, L, M, N etc. or numbered as 1, 2, 3, 4, etc.
iv) While revolving in the discrete orbits the electrons do not radiate
energy.
Shells or energy levels in an atom
3) Distribution of electrons in different shells :-
The distribution of electrons in the different shells was
suggested by Bhor and Bury. The following are the rules for filling
electrons in the different shells.
i) The maximum number of electrons in a shell is given by
the formula 2n2
where n is the number of the shell 1, 2, 3
etc.
First shell or K shell can have = 2n2
= 2 x 12
= 2x1x1 = 2 electrons
Second shell or L shell can have = 2n2
= 2 x 22
= 2x2x2 = 8 electrons
Third shell or M shell can have = 2n2
= 2 x 32
= 2x3x3 = 18 electrons
Fourth shell or N shell can have = 2n2
= 2 x 42
= 2x4x4 = 32 electrons
and so on.
ii) The maximum number of electrons that can be filled in
the outermost shell is 8.
iii) Electrons cannot be filled in a shell unless the inner
shells are filled.

4) Valency :-
Valency is the combining capacity of an atom of an element.
The electrons present in the outermost shell of an atom are called
valence electrons.
If an atom’s outermost shell is completely filled, they are inert or least
reactive and their combining capacity or valency is zero.
Of the inert elements Helium atom has 2 electrons in the outermost shell
and the atoms of other elements have 8 electrons in their outermost shell.
Atoms having 8 electrons in their outermost shell is having octet
configuration and are stable.
If an atom’s outermost shell is not completely filled it is not stable. It will
try to attain stability by losing, gaining or sharing electrons with other atoms
to attain octet configuration.
The number of electrons lost, gained or shared by an atom to attain octet
configuration is the combining capacity or valency of the element
Eg :- Hydrogen, Lithium, Sodium atoms can easily lose 1 electron and
become stable. So their valency is 1. Magnesium can easily lose 2 electrons.
So its valency is 2. Aluminium can easily lose 3 electrons. So its valency is 3.
Carbon shares 4 electrons. So its valency is 4.
Fluorine can easily gain 1 electron and become stable. So its
valency is 1. Oxygen can easily gain 2 electrons. So its valency is 2. Nitrogen
can easily gain 3 electrons. So its valency is 3.
5) Atomic number and Mass number :-
a) Atomic number (Z) :-
The atomic number of an element is the number of protons present in the
nucleus of the atom of the element.
All the atoms of an element have the same atomic number.
Eg :- Hydrogen – Atomic number = 1 (1 proton)
Helium - Atomic number = 2 (2 protons)
Lithium - Atomic number = 3 (3 protons)
b) Mass number (A) :-
The mass number of an element is the sum of the number of protons and
neutrons (nucleons) present in the nucleus of an atom of the element.
The mass of an atom is mainly the mass of the protons and neutrons in the nucleus
of the atom.
Eg :- Carbon – Mass number = 12 (6 protons + 6 neutrons) Mass = 12u
Aluminium – Mass number = 27 (13 protons + 14 neutrons) Mass = 27u
Sulphur – Mass number = 32 (16 protons + 16 neutrons) Mass = 32u
In the notation of an atom the Mass number
atomic number and mass number Eg :- N
are written as :- Atomic number
Symbol of
element

5) Isotopes :-
Isotopes are atoms of the same element having the same
atomic numbers but different mass numbers.
Eg :- Hydrogen has three isotopes. They are Protium,
Deuterium (D) and Tritium (T).
H H H
Protium Deuterium Tritium
Carbon has two isotopes. They are :-
C C
Chlorine has two isotopes They are :-

35 37
17 17
6) Isobars :-
Isobars are atoms of different elements having different
atomic numbers but same mass numbers.
These pairs of elements have the same number of
nucleons.
Eg :- Calcium (Ca) – atomic number - 20 and Argon (Ar) –
atomic number 18 have different atomic numbers but
have the same mass numbers – 40.
Iron (Fe) and Nickel (Ni) have different atomic
numbers but have the same atomic mass numbers – 58.

Structure of the Atom Explained

  • 1.
  • 2. CHAPTER – 4 STRUCTURE OF THE ATOM CLASS :- IX MADE BY :- MAINAK MITRA, JOYCHOWDHURY, SOHAM PAUL SCHOOL :- HEM SHEELA MODEL SCHOOL
  • 3.
  • 4. 1a) CHARGED PARTICLES IN MATTER :- Atoms have three types of sub atomic particles. They are electrons, protons and neutrons. Electrons are negatively charged (e- ), protons are positively charged (p+ ) and neutrons have no charge (n). The mass of an electron is 1/2000 the mass of a hydrogen atom. The mass of a proton is equal to the mass of a hydrogen atom and is taken as 1 unit. The mass of a neutron is equal to the mass of a hydrogen atom and is and is taken as 1 unit. b) DISCOVERY OF SUBATOMIC PARTICLES :- In 1900, J.J.Thomson discovered the presence of the negatively charged particles called electrons in the atom. In 1886, E.Goldstein discovered new radiations in gas discharge and called them canal rays. These rays were positively charged. This later led to the discovery of the positively charged particles called protons in the atom. In 1932 Chadwick discovered the presence of particles having no charge in the atom called neutrons.
  • 5. 2) Structure of an atom :- a) Thomson’s model of an atom :- According to Thomson an atom is similar to a Christmas pudding. The pudding had positive charge and the electrons having negative charge were like plums on the pudding. He proposed that :- i) An atom consists of a positively charged sphere and the electrons are embedded in it. ii) The negative and positive charges are equal in magnitude So the atom as a whole is electrically neutral.
  • 6. b) Rutherford’s model of an atom :- Rutherford’s alpha scattering experiment :- Rutherford allowed a beam of fast moving alpha particles ( α – particles) having positive charge to fall on a thin gold foil. He observed that :- i) Most of the α – particles passed straight through the gold foil. ii) Some of the α – particles were slightly deflected by small angles. iii) Very few α – particles appeared to rebound.
  • 7. Conclusions from Rutherford’s alpha scattering experiment :- i) Most of the space inside an atom is empty. (because most of the α – particles passed straight through the gold foil.) ii) The atom had a small nucleus having positive charge. ( because some of the α – particles having positive charge were slightly deflected by small angles.) iii) The size of the nucleus is very small compared to the size of the atom. (because very few α – particles appeared to rebound and most of the positive charge and mass of the atom is in the nucleus.) Rutherford’s model of an atom :- i) An atom has a positively charged nucleus at its centre and most of the mass of the atom is in the nucleus. ii) The electrons revolve around the nucleus in different orbits. iii) The size of the nucleus is very small compared to the size of the atom.
  • 8. Defects of Rutherford’s model of the atom :- Any particle in a circular orbit would undergo acceleration and during acceleration the charged particle would radiate energy. So the revolving electrons would lose energy and fall into the nucleus and the atom would be unstable. We know that atoms are stable. Negatively charged electron Positively charged nucleus Very small positively charged nucleus Negatively charged electrons in orbits around the nucleus - - - + Rutherford’s model of an atom
  • 9. c) Bohr’s model of an atom :- i) An atom has a positively charged nucleus at its centre and most of the mass of the atom is in the nucleus. ii) The electrons revolve around the nucleus in special orbits called discrete orbits. iii) These orbits are called shells or energy levels and are represented by the letters K, L, M, N etc. or numbered as 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. iv) While revolving in the discrete orbits the electrons do not radiate energy. Shells or energy levels in an atom
  • 10. 3) Distribution of electrons in different shells :- The distribution of electrons in the different shells was suggested by Bhor and Bury. The following are the rules for filling electrons in the different shells. i) The maximum number of electrons in a shell is given by the formula 2n2 where n is the number of the shell 1, 2, 3 etc. First shell or K shell can have = 2n2 = 2 x 12 = 2x1x1 = 2 electrons Second shell or L shell can have = 2n2 = 2 x 22 = 2x2x2 = 8 electrons Third shell or M shell can have = 2n2 = 2 x 32 = 2x3x3 = 18 electrons Fourth shell or N shell can have = 2n2 = 2 x 42 = 2x4x4 = 32 electrons and so on. ii) The maximum number of electrons that can be filled in the outermost shell is 8. iii) Electrons cannot be filled in a shell unless the inner shells are filled.

  • 13. 4) Valency :- Valency is the combining capacity of an atom of an element. The electrons present in the outermost shell of an atom are called valence electrons. If an atom’s outermost shell is completely filled, they are inert or least reactive and their combining capacity or valency is zero. Of the inert elements Helium atom has 2 electrons in the outermost shell and the atoms of other elements have 8 electrons in their outermost shell. Atoms having 8 electrons in their outermost shell is having octet configuration and are stable. If an atom’s outermost shell is not completely filled it is not stable. It will try to attain stability by losing, gaining or sharing electrons with other atoms to attain octet configuration. The number of electrons lost, gained or shared by an atom to attain octet configuration is the combining capacity or valency of the element Eg :- Hydrogen, Lithium, Sodium atoms can easily lose 1 electron and become stable. So their valency is 1. Magnesium can easily lose 2 electrons. So its valency is 2. Aluminium can easily lose 3 electrons. So its valency is 3. Carbon shares 4 electrons. So its valency is 4. Fluorine can easily gain 1 electron and become stable. So its valency is 1. Oxygen can easily gain 2 electrons. So its valency is 2. Nitrogen can easily gain 3 electrons. So its valency is 3.
  • 14. 5) Atomic number and Mass number :- a) Atomic number (Z) :- The atomic number of an element is the number of protons present in the nucleus of the atom of the element. All the atoms of an element have the same atomic number. Eg :- Hydrogen – Atomic number = 1 (1 proton) Helium - Atomic number = 2 (2 protons) Lithium - Atomic number = 3 (3 protons) b) Mass number (A) :- The mass number of an element is the sum of the number of protons and neutrons (nucleons) present in the nucleus of an atom of the element. The mass of an atom is mainly the mass of the protons and neutrons in the nucleus of the atom. Eg :- Carbon – Mass number = 12 (6 protons + 6 neutrons) Mass = 12u Aluminium – Mass number = 27 (13 protons + 14 neutrons) Mass = 27u Sulphur – Mass number = 32 (16 protons + 16 neutrons) Mass = 32u In the notation of an atom the Mass number atomic number and mass number Eg :- N are written as :- Atomic number Symbol of element 14 7
  • 15. 5) Isotopes :- Isotopes are atoms of the same element having the same atomic numbers but different mass numbers. Eg :- Hydrogen has three isotopes. They are Protium, Deuterium (D) and Tritium (T). H H H Protium Deuterium Tritium Carbon has two isotopes. They are :- C C Chlorine has two isotopes They are :- Cl Cl 1 1 1 1 2 3 12 6 6 14 35 37 17 17
  • 16. 6) Isobars :- Isobars are atoms of different elements having different atomic numbers but same mass numbers. These pairs of elements have the same number of nucleons. Eg :- Calcium (Ca) – atomic number - 20 and Argon (Ar) – atomic number 18 have different atomic numbers but have the same mass numbers – 40. Iron (Fe) and Nickel (Ni) have different atomic numbers but have the same atomic mass numbers – 58. 20 18 40 40 58 58 2726 Fe Ca Ar Ni
