11/13/09 Atomic structure

This week we talked about atomic structure. Specifically, we discussed Lewis dot diagrams, electron energy levels, orbitals, ground and excited states, the EM spectrum and properties of waves.

On Thursday we did two labs. The first was Rutherford's experiment and the second was Isotopes of Kandium. Both lab reports are due Monday.

We will have a test on Friday, 11/20.

Coming up we will have the Flame test and Spectroscopy labs.

Students need to complete one project each month. The current project is the first of two choices. If both are completed, it will count as extra credit. Click here to see the project.
