Einstein recognized the threshold energy (energy required)as the quanta needed to release and electron from _______
A nucleus
It is impossible to know precisely where an electron is and what path it follows
Heisenberg uncertainty principle
Describes the size and energy level of the orbital, Commonly called the shell, positive integer (n = 1, 2, 3, 4, …), as the value increases: the energy increases and the average distance of the electron from the nucleus increases
Principal quantum number (n)
Defines the three-dimensional shaped of the orbital, commonly called the subshell
Angular-momentum quantum number (l)
Defines the spatial orientation of the orbital, there are 2l + 1 values of ___, and they can have any integral value from -l to +l
Magnetic quantum number (ml)
Spherical about the nucleus and increase in size with increasing nodes (area of zero probability (wave behavior))
S orbitals
Dumbbell shapes about 1 axis. The x-axis represents l = -1 , the y-axis for l = 0 and z-axis for l = +1
P orbital
The nuclear charge actually felt by an electron
Effective nuclear charge (Zeff)
A description of which orbitals are occupied by electrons
Electron configuration
Orbitals that have the same energy level. For examples, the three p orbitals in a given subshell
Degenerate orbitals
The lowest-energy configuration
Ground-state electron configuration
A guide for determining the filling order of orbitals
Aufbau principle
Lower-energy orbitals fill before higher-energy orbitals; and orbital can only hold two electrons, which must have opposite signs; if two or more degenerate orbitals are available, follow Hund’s rule
Rules of the aufbau principles
If two or more orbitals with the same energy are available, one electron goes into each until all are half-full. The electrons in the half-filled orbitals all have the same spin
Hund’s rule

Halogens are smallest in a period because of their ______ effective nuclear charge
The main group non-metals _____ electrons to reach nearest noble gas electron configurations
The main group metals ____ electrons to reach the nearest noble gas electron configuration
Because metals lose electrons, the ions are ______ than the element, the degree of change depends on the number of electrons lost
A gain of electrons by non-metals decreases the effective nuclear charge, so the anions are _____ than the element
The amount of energy necessary to remove the highest-energy electron from an isolated neutral atom in the gaseous state

Ionization energy _______ with a low effective nuclear charge and large size
Noble gases have the ______ ionization energy and order _____ from Li>Ba>K>Rb, etc.
1A metals have the ______ ionization energy
The energy released when a neutral atom gains an electron to form an anion
Electron affinity
The amount of energy that must be supplied to break up an ionic solid into individual gaseous ions. Determines solubility.
Lattice energy (U)
