Mole Concept & Atomic Structures Revision
Mole Concept
Relative Isotopic Mass – The mass of an atom of a specific isotope as compared with 1/12 the mass of a carbon-12 atom.
Relative Atomic Mass – The weighted average of the mass of an atom of an element compared with 1/12 themass of a carbon-12 atom.
And other similar terms, eg. RMM, RFM2.No units as they are ratios3.Other terms to remember: molar mass, molar volume, limiting reagent4.Points to note:
A balanced equation or at least the molar ratio of relevant species is needed.
If the reacting species are gaseous, apply pV=nRT. This means that the amount is proportionate to the volumeprovided the temperature and pressure remain unchanged or amount is proportionate to the pressure providedtemperature and volume remain unchanged.
Atomic Structures
1.Recall the subatomic particles, their masses, their charges and their behaviour in an electric field.
Atomic number/proton number – Number of protons (also the number of electrons in an atom)
Nucleon number – Number of protons + number of neutrons2.Electronic configuration
Higher principle quantum numbers generally have higher energy levels; exception 4s and 3d.
Fill up the lower energy levels first, electrons fill up orbitals of equivalent energy levels before pairing up(minimise repulsion of like charges). An exception occurs in transition metals, chromium and copper.
Ground state – electrons in the atom occupy the lowest energy levels.
Excited state – When one or more electrons absorbed enough energy to become promoted to a higher energylevel, the atom is unstable and is said to be in an excited state.3.Ionisation energies
 The first ionisation energy of an element is defined as the amount of energy (in kJ mol
) required to remove oneelectron from each atom in a mole of gaseous atoms, producing one mole of gaseous cations.
