290. Wave Mechanics

Description

To succeed in this topic, you need to:
• Be familiar with the structure of the atom and the arrangement of electrons surrounding the nucleus.
• Be familiar with the principles of electrons and electron orbitals, to include; s-, p- and d- orbitals.

After working through this Chemistry Factsheet, you will:
• Be aware of the wave-duality of electrons and the evidence of the double-split experiment to demonstrate the wave behaviour observed by electrons.
• Be aware of the Schrodinger Equation and the use of mathematic models to describe the structure of the atom.
• Be aware of the four quantum numbers and how these are used to predict/describe atomic orbitals as regions of space where there is a high probability of finding an electron.
