Section 4.1 Defining the Atom
 OBJECTIVES:
Identify
what instrument is
used to observe individual
atoms.
Section 4.1 Defining the Atom

The Greek philosopher Democritus (460
B.C. – 370 B.C.) was among the first to
suggest the existence of atoms (from
the Greek word “atomos”)
 He
believed that atoms were indivisible and
indestructible
 His ideas did agree with later scientific
theory, but did not explain chemical
behavior, and was not based on the
scientific method – but just philosophy
Dalton’s Atomic Theory (experiment based!)
John Dalton
(1766 – 1844)
1) All elements are composed of
tiny indivisible particles called
atoms
2) Atoms of the same element are
identical. Atoms of any one
element are different from
those of any other element.
3) Atoms of different elements combine in
simple whole-number ratios to form
chemical compounds
4) In chemical reactions, atoms are combined,
separated, or rearranged – but never
changed into atoms of another element.
Sizing up the Atom
 Elements are able to be subdivided into
smaller and smaller particles – these are
the atoms, and they still have properties
of that element
If you could line up 100,000,000
copper atoms in a single file, they
would be approximately 1 cm long
Despite their small size, individual
atoms are observable with instruments
such as scanning tunneling (electron)
microscopes
Section 4.2
Structure of the Nuclear Atom
 OBJECTIVES:
Identify
three types of
subatomic particles.
Section 4.2
Structure of the Nuclear Atom
 OBJECTIVES:
Describe
the structure of
atoms, according to the
Rutherford atomic model.
Section 4.2
Structure of the Nuclear Atom
 One
change to Dalton’s atomic
theory is that atoms are divisible
into subatomic particles:
 Electrons,
protons, and neutrons are
examples of these fundamental
particles
 There are many other types of
particles, but we will study these three
Discovery of the Electron
In 1897, J.J. Thomson used a cathode ray
tube to deduce the presence of a negatively
charged particle: the electron
Modern Cathode Ray Tubes

Computer Monitor
Cathode ray tubes pass electricity
through a gas that is contained at a
very low pressure.
Mass of the Electron
Mass of the
electron is
9.11 x 10-28 g
The oil drop apparatus
1916 – Robert Millikan determines the mass
of the electron: 1/1840 the mass of a
hydrogen atom; has one unit of negative
charge
Conclusions from the Study
of the Electron:
a) Cathode rays have identical properties
regardless of the element used to
produce them. All elements must contain
identically charged electrons.
b) Atoms are neutral, so there must be
positive particles in the atom to balance
the negative charge of the electrons
c) Electrons have so little mass that atoms
must contain other particles that account
for most of the mass
Conclusions from the Study
of the Electron:
 Eugen Goldstein in 1886 observed
what is now called the “proton” particles with a positive charge, and
a relative mass of 1 (or 1840 times
that of an electron)
 1932 – James Chadwick confirmed
the existence of the “neutron” – a
particle with no charge, but a mass
nearly equal to a proton

Thomson’s Atomic Model
J. J. Thomson
Thomson believed that the electrons
were like plums embedded in a
positively charged “pudding,” thus it
was called the “plum pudding” model.
Ernest Rutherford’s
Gold Foil Experiment - 1911
Alpha particles are helium nuclei The alpha particles were fired at a thin
sheet of gold foil
 Particles that hit on the detecting
screen (film) are recorded

Rutherford’s problem:
In the following pictures, there is a target
hidden by a cloud. To figure out the shape of
the target, we shot some beams into the cloud
and recorded where the beams came out. Can
you figure out the shape of the target?
Target

Target

The Answers:
Target #1
Target #2
Rutherford’s Findings
Most of the particles passed right through
 A few particles were deflected
 VERY FEW were greatly deflected

“Like howitzer shells bouncing
off of tissue paper!”
Conclusions:
a) The nucleus is small
b) The nucleus is dense
c) The nucleus is positively
charged
The Rutherford Atomic Model

Based on his experimental evidence:
 The atom is mostly empty space
 All the positive charge, and almost all
the mass is concentrated in a small area
in the center. He called this a “nucleus”
 The nucleus is composed of protons
and neutrons (they make the nucleus!)
 The electrons distributed around the
nucleus, and occupy most of the volume
 His model was called a “nuclear model”

Distinguishing Among Atoms
 OBJECTIVES:
Explain
what makes
elements and isotopes
different from each other.
Section 4.3
Distinguishing Among Atoms
 OBJECTIVES:
Calculate
the number of
neutrons in an atom.
Section 4.3
Distinguishing Among Atoms
 OBJECTIVES:
Calculate
the atomic mass of
an element.
Section 4.3
Distinguishing Among Atoms
 OBJECTIVES:
Explain
why chemists use
the periodic table.
Atomic Number

Atoms are composed of identical
protons, neutrons, and electrons
 How
then are atoms of one element
different from another element?
Elements are different because they
contain different numbers of PROTONS
 The “atomic number” of an element is
the number of protons in the nucleus

#
protons in an atom = # electrons
Atomic Number
Atomic number (Z) of an element is
the number of protons in the nucleus
of each atom of that element.

Isotopes
 Dalton
was wrong about all
elements of the same type being
identical
 Atoms of the same element can
have different numbers of
neutrons.
 Thus, different mass numbers.
 These are called isotopes.
Isotopes
 Frederick
Soddy (1877-1956)
proposed the idea of isotopes in
1912

Isotopes are atoms of the same element
having different masses, due to varying
numbers of neutrons.

Soddy won the Nobel Prize in
Chemistry in 1921 for his work with
isotopes and radioactive materials.
Naming Isotopes
 We
can also put the mass
number after the name of the
element:
carbon-12
carbon-14
uranium-235
Isotopes are atoms of the same element having
different masses, due to varying numbers of
neutrons.

Isotopes
Elements
occur in
nature as
mixtures of
isotopes.
Isotopes are
atoms of the
same element
that differ in
the number of
neutrons.
Atomic Mass



How heavy is an atom of oxygen?
 It depends, because there are different
kinds of oxygen atoms.
We are more concerned with the average
atomic mass.
This is based on the abundance
(percentage) of each variety of that
element in nature.

We don’t use grams for this mass because
the numbers would be too small.
Measuring Atomic Mass
 Instead
of grams, the unit we use
is the Atomic Mass Unit (amu)
 It is defined as one-twelfth the
mass of a carbon-12 atom.

Carbon-12 chosen because of its isotope purity.
 Each
isotope has its own atomic
mass, thus we determine the
average from percent abundance.
To calculate the average:
 Multiply
the atomic mass of
each isotope by it’s
abundance (expressed as a
decimal), then add the
results.
 If
not told otherwise, the mass of the
isotope is expressed in atomic mass
units (amu)
Atomic Masses
Atomic mass is the average of all the
naturally occurring isotopes of that element.

Solution
Answer
The Periodic Table:
A Preview
 A “periodic table” is an
arrangement of elements in which
the elements are separated into
groups based on a set of repeating
properties
The periodic table allows you to
easily compare the properties of
one element to another
The Periodic Table:
A Preview
 Each horizontal row (there are 7 of
them) is called a period
Each vertical column is called a
group, or family
Elements in a group have similar
chemical and physical properties
Identified with a number and
either an “A” or “B”
