Energy Levels in Atoms

What are Energy Levels?

This post will introduce the concept of discrete energy levels in atoms for Prelim Chemistry

Topic: Atomic Structure and Atomic Mass

  • Model the atom’s discrete energy levels, including electronic configuration and spdf notation

 

How Did the Current Atomic Model Come to Be?

The idea of an atom has taken on many forms throughout time, this video will take you through some of the main forms.

(Note, this video does not cover the current Schrodinger Model which will be relevant in the next post when we cover spdf notation).

 

Introducing Energy Levels

Energy levels are discrete levels of energy in which electrons reside, this video will explore more about energy levels and also introduce electron configuration.
