Chapter 5: Electrons in Atoms


●     Light Emission and Absorption Spectra - go to Ch 7 (WW Norton) Visit Site
●     Coloring Applet (ChemConnections) Visit Site
●     Emission Java Applet(ChemConnections) Visit Site
●     Absorption Jaba Applet (ChemConnections) Visit Site
●     Single Filter Emission Java Applet (ChemConnections) Visit Site
●     Particle vs Wave w single and dbl slit animationed vid - clear. Conclusion at end video wrong because it "observing" requires hitting electron w photons, which change it's direction and velocity (Heisenberg) (You Tube) Visit Site
●     Discharge tubes (element tubes) & electron jumps, applet, interactive (PhET) Visit Site
●   Waver interference pattern on Physics 2000 showing one of the theories of light, namely wave nature of light.  Visit Site


● Magnetiism - O2 (paramagnetic) vs N2 (diamagnetic) it's all in the unpaired electrons. 2 demos one of liquid oxygen and 2nd with liquid nitrogen. Awesome! Visit Site

Mases Animations

●   Animation represents the Schrodenger/Heisenberg model of the atom. It shows a drawing similar to what you see on p. 137 of our text. It sequentially adds electrons until all of the orbitals shown are filled. Note the extraordinary difference between this and the Bohr model.  Visit Site
●   Animation shows general areas similar to Bohr model, but different in that they don't follow orbits. The other animation of orbital filling shows a more accurate representation of Schrodenger/Heisenberg model we use today. Visit Site


●     Orbitron - shapes of s, p, d, and f of atomic orbitals Visit Site
●     David's Whizzy Periodic Table, electron in orbitals, first 36 elements Visit Site
●     Principal Energy Levels Chart (PEL) Visit Site
●     Orbital Filling Chart - practice order of filling w large demo version included (HTML)  Visit Site
●     Orbital Filling chart from old text Visit Site
●     Orbital filling applet, very cool Visit Site


●     Orbit Animation - Interactive (Visionlearning) Visit Site

Photoelectric Effect

●     Photoelectric Effect - interactive applet allows you to change wavelength of light as well as it intensity (PhET) Visit Site

SMART BOARD Appropriate

●     Electron dot (Lewis Structures)interactive tutorial (McGraw-Hill) Visit Site


●     Wave Interference showing wave interference with water waves. (Physics 2000)   Go to bottom of page and click NEXT to see the classic 2-slit experiment showing wave interference with light. Visit Site
●     Radio Waves animation - broadcast to receiver (PhET) Visit Site
●     From Physics 2000, on this page towards the bottom is Pictured link for applet to interactively make waves of various frequencies and amplitudes   Visit Site
●   Video by Science & Reason on Electromagnetic Spectrum, show really great stuff about waves of all kinds. Great intro to EMR. Visit Site
●     Video from BYU showing background on Bohr, electron as a wave, and types of orbitals Visit Site

Wigger Vids

●     Why we think light acts like waves - presentation by Miss Grokett. Shows wave interference against move of waves of water. Visit Site
●   How to complete Orbital Filling Charts for atoms is taught in this vid. Also shown is how to use a completed Orbital Filling Chart to create an Electron Configuration for several example atoms. Visit Site
