The Quantum Atom

Sphere shaped orbitals s orbitals
dumbbell shaped orbitals p orbitals
number of p orbital shapes three (x, y, z)
number of d orbitals five
maximum number of electrons in an orbital two
states that two electrons in the same orbital must have opposite spin Pauli Exclusion Principle
the charge on an atom if it gains electrons negative
the charge on an atom if it loses electrons positve
an atom that gains or loses electrons ion
uses a chemical symbol with dots to represent the number of valence electrons Lewis structure
the electrons in the outer most energy level valence electrons
states that an atom gains, loses, or shares electrons until it has eight valence electrons Octet Rule
states that electrons fill the lowest energy orbitals first aufbau prinicple
states that when electrons occupy orbitals of equal energy they do not pair up until they are forced to. They will have the same direction of spin. Hund's Rule

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
