Quantum Concepts - Orbitals and Multi-Electron Atoms
In this quantum concepts worksheet, students use orbital diagrams to construct energy level diagrams. They show electrons in each energy level and show the spin of electrons. They also sketch "cartoon diagrams" for given orbitals.

Hydrogen Atom as a Particle in a Box (NB)
How does an electron qualify as a particle in a box? It behaves like a wave and, when bound to an atom, has boundaries. Using this notion, the professor explains a quantum mechanical calculation for a hydrogen atom. Given the length of...
