Ch. 6, 7, 8  electronic structure of atom, periodic trends, & chemical bond I    test  [100 points]     AP Chem

For problems involving calculations, show your work in an organized manner, include any relevant equation (or formula and conversion factor(s)), put the proper units in your calculations / answer, and have the proper number of significant figures in your answer. 

Academic Honesty:   The answers on this test are my own and I am using only the allowed set of notes as described in the syllabus.  I have not discussed the test questions with anyone before or during the test nor have I seen the test questions prior to the exam.  If you violate any of the preceding items or do not sign, your semester grade is a F.

1. Relate the line spectra of an atom with respect to it’s electron energy levels.  [10 points; similar to HW 6.23]

2. The electron energy level in the hydrogen atom is En = - 2.18 * 10 -18 J (1 / n 2)

What is the wavelength of light associated with the transition from the n = 2 to n = 3 electron energy level ?  [15 points; similar to HW 6.27a]

3. Sketch the orbital diagram for arsenic.  [10 points; similar to HW 6.67a]

4.  Sketch the PES spectrum for sulfur; label (i) each peak with its associated atomic orbital, (ii) the vertical- and horizontal- axis, and (iii) the relative area of each peak.  Assume that the magnitude of the value on the horizontal axis increases from left to right.  [10 points; similar to weekly quiz]
