Classroom Resources: Atomic Structure
51 – 52 of 52 Classroom Resources
Atomic Radius, Ionic Radius, Ionization Energy, Valence Electrons, Periodic Table, Atoms, Electrons, Subatomic Particles, Ions, Model of the Atom | High School
In this simulation for the March 2016 issue, students can investigate the periodic trends of atomic radius, ionization energy, and ionic radius. By choosing elements from the periodic table, atoms can be selected for a side by side comparison and analysis. Students can also attempt to ionize an atom by removing its valence electrons. Quantitative data is available for each periodic trend, and can be further examined in a graph.
Atomic Theory, Law of Conservation of Energy, Electrons, Electromagnetic Spectrum | High School
In the March 2015 issue, students explore what happens when electrons within a generic atom are excited from their ground state. They will see that when an electron relaxes from an excited state to its ground state, energy is released in the form of electromagnetic radiation.
