Question 21.

Explain Pauli’s exclusion principle.

Answer:

Pauli’s exclusion principle:

According to this principle

“No two electrons in an atom can have the same set of four quantum numbers”. This can also be stated as “only two electrons may exist in the same orbital and these electrons must have opposite spins”.

This means that the two electrons can have the same value of three quantum numbers n, l and m_{l }but have the opposite spin quantum number Ex : Consider ‘K’ shell of the atom having two electrons

Question 22.

What is Aufbaus principle ?

Answer:

Aufbau’s principle:

This principle states

“In the ground state of the atoms, the orbitals are filled in order of their increasing energies”. In other words electrons first occupy the lowest energy orbital available to them and enter into higher energy orbitals only after the lower energy orbitals are filled.

The order in which the orbitals are filled as follows :

1s < 2s < 2p < 3s < 3p < 4s < 3d < 4p < 5s < 4d < 5p < 4f < 5d < 6p < 7s

Question 23.

What is Hund’s rule ?

Answer:

Hund’s rule: This rule deals with the filling of electrons in degenerate orbitals. It states “Pairing of electrons in the orbitals belonging to the same subshell (p, d or f) does not take place until each orbital belonging to that subshell has got one electron each (i.e.,) all the orbitals are singly occupied”.

Since there are three ’p’, five ‘d’ and seven ‘f’ orbitals, therefore the pairing of electrons will start in the p, d and f orbitals with the entry of 4^{th}, 6^{th} and 8^{th} electrons respectively.

Ex : ‘_{8}O’ electronic configuration is

Question 24.

Explain Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle.

Answer:

Heisenberg uncertainty principle : “Simultaneous and exact determination of the position and momentum of a sub-atomic particle, like electron moving with high speed is impossible.”

If Δx and Δp represents the uncertainties in the position and momentum respectively. Then according to Heisenberg

Δx. Δp ≥ \(\frac{\mathrm{h}}{4 \pi}\) ——- (1)

The product of uncertainties in position (Δx) and momentum (Δp) of an electron cannot be less than \(\frac{h}{4 \pi}\). It can be equal or greater than \(\frac{h}{4 \pi}\).

Since momentum = mass x velocity, the equation (1) can be written as

Δx × m (Δv) ≥ \(\frac{\mathrm{h}}{4 \pi}\) = Δx × Δv ≥ \(\frac{\mathrm{h}}{4 \pi \mathrm{m}}\)

If the position is determined accurately Δx = 0 and Δv = ∝. That means the inaccuracy in measuring the velocity is ∝. If velocity is determined accurately Δv = 0 and Δx = ∝.

Question 25.

What is the wavelength of an electron moving with a velocity of 2.0 × 10^{7}m/s ?

= 0.3640 × 10^{-34} × 10^{+24}

= 0.3640 × 10^{10} m

= 0.3640 A

h = 6.625 × 10^{-34} J.Sec

m = 9.1 × 10^{-31} kg

V = 2.0 × 10^{7} m/sec.

Question 26.

Question 30.

How many electrons in an atom may have n = 4 and m_{s} = +1/2 ?

Answer:

For n = 4 → l values are 0, 1, 2, 3

l = 0 → s contains 1 electron with m_{s} = + 1/2

l = 1 → p contains 3 electron with m_{s} = + 1/2

l = 2 → d contains 5 electron with m_{s} = + 1/2

l = 3 → f contains 7 electron with m_{s} = + 1/2

∴ Total no.of electrons with ms = +1/2 for n = 4

= 1 + 3 + 5 + 7 = 16.

Question 31.

How many sub-shells are associated with n = 5 ?

Answer:

For n = 5

l values are 0, 1, 2, 3, 4

l = 0 → s – orbital

l = 1 → p — orbital

l = 2 → d – orbital

l = 3 → f – orbital

l = 4 → g — orbital

→ Five subshells are associated with n = 5.

f) n = 3, l = 1, m_{l} = 0, m_{s} = +\(\frac{1}{2}\)

Answer:

Following set of quantum numbers are not possible.

a) n = 0, l = 0, m_{l} = 0, m_{s} = +\(\frac{1}{2}\)

Reason:

‘n’ is principal quantum number, whose values are from 1 to n. The value of ‘n’ never equal to zero. But given n = 0.

c) n = 1, l = 1, m_{l} = 0, m_{s} = +\(\frac{1}{2}\)

Reason:

Values of ‘l’ are from 0 to (n – 1).

If n = 1 then the value of ‘l’ is zero not equal to ‘1’.

e) n = 3, l = 3, m_{l} = – 3, m_{s} = +\(\frac{1}{2}\)

Reason:

If n = 3, possible values of ‘l’ are 0, 1, 2, but not equal to ‘3’.

Question 41.

Show that the circumference of the Bohr orbit for the hydrogen atom is an integral multiple of the de Broglie wavelength associated with the electron revolving around the orbit.

Answer:

Consider the Bohr’s angular momentum equation.

mvr = \(\frac{\mathrm{nh}}{2 \pi}\)

i.e The angular momentum of an electron is integral multiple of ‘\(\frac{\mathbf{h}}{2 \pi}\)‘

mvr = \(\frac{\mathrm{nh}}{2 \pi}\)

2πr = \(\frac{\mathrm{nh}}{\mathrm{mv}}\)

According to de-Broglie’s wavelength λ = \(\frac{h}{m v}\)

2πr = \(n\left(\frac{h}{m v}\right)\)

2πr = nλ.

Thus the circumference of the Bohr orbit is integral multiple of de-Broglie’s wave length.

Question 42.

The longest wavelength doublet absorption transition is observed at 589.0 and 589.6 nm. Calculate the frequency of each transition and energy difference between two excited states.

Answer:

Given largest wave length doublet absorption transition is observed at 589.0 and 589.6 nm.

∴ \(v_1=\frac{c}{\lambda_1}\)

= \(\frac{3 \times 10^8}{589 \times 10^{-9}}\) = 0.005093 × 10^{+7}

= 5.093 × 10^{14} sec^{-1}

λ_{1} = 589 × 10^{-9} m

∴ \(v_2=\frac{c}{\lambda_2}\)

= \(\frac{3 \times 10^8}{589.6 \times 10^{-9}}\)

= 0.005088 × 10^{17}

= 5.088 × 10^{14} sec^{-1}

λ_{1} = 5.089 × 10^{-9} m

Energy difference between two states = h[\(v_1\) – h\(v_2\)]

= h[\(v_1\) – \(v_2\)]

= 6.625 × 10^{-34}[5.093 × 10^{-14} – 5.088 × 10^{14}]

= 6.625 × 10^{-34} × 0.005 × 10^{14}

= 0.0331 × 10^{-20} J.

Question 43.

What are the main features of quantum mechanical model of an atom?

Answer:

Important features of quantum mechanical model of atom:

- The energy of electrons in an atom is quantized (it can only have certain specific values).
- The existence of quantized electronic energý levels is a direct result of the wave like properties at electrons and are allowed solution at Schrodinger wave equation.
- All the information about the electron in an atom is contained in its orbital wave function ‘Ψ’ and quantum mechanics makes it possible to extract this information from “Ψ’.
- The path of the electron can never be determined accurately. Therefore, we find only the probability of the electron at different points in space, around an atom.
- The probability of finding an electroñat a point within an atom is proportional to the square of the orbital wave function i.e., \(|\Psi|^2\) at that point. \(|\Psi|^2\) is known as probability density and is always positive. From the value of \(|\Psi|^2\) at different points with in the atom, it is possible to predict the region around the nucleus where electron will most probably be found.

Question 44.

What is a nodal plane? How many nodal planes are possible for 2p – and 3d – orbitals?

Answer:

and Spin quantum no. (m_{s}) = + 1/2

Question 47.

A line in Lyman series of hydrogen atom has a wavelength of 1.03 × 10^{-7} m. What is the initial energy level of the electron?

Answer:

Given λ= 1.03 × 10^{-7} m = 1.03 × 10^{-5} cm

n_{2} = 1 (for Lyman series)

We have, R = 109677 cm^{-1}

⇒ n_{2} = 3 (i.e.,) original energy level of electron is 3.

Question 48.

If the position of the electron is measured within an accuracy of ±0.002 nm. Calculate the uncertainty in the momentum of the electron.

Answer:

Formulae:

Δx × Δp = \(\frac{h}{4 \pi}\)

Δp = \(\frac{h}{\Delta x \times 4 \pi}\)

= \(\frac{6.625 \times 10^{-34}}{4 \times 3.14 \times 2 \times 10^{-12}}\)

= 0.2637 × 10^{-22}

= 2.637 × 10^{-23} J/m.

Δx = 0.002 nm

= 2 × 10^{-3} × 10^{9} m

= 2 × 10^{-12} m

h = 6.625 × 10^{-34} J.sec.

∴ Uncertainity in momentum of electron = 2.637 × 10^{-23} J/m.

Question 49.

If the velocity of the electron is 1.6 × 10^{6} m/s^{-1}. Calculate de Brogue wavelength associated with this electron.

λ = \(\frac{\mathrm{h}}{\mathrm{mv}}\)

= \(\frac{6.625 \times 10^{-34}}{9.1 \times 10^{-31} \times 1.6 \times 10^6}\)

= 0.455 × 10^{-9} m

= 0.455 nm.

v = 1.6 × 10^{6} m/sec

h = 6.625 × 10^{-34} J.sec

m = 9.1 × 10^{-31} Kg.

Question 50.

Question 51.

The quantum numbers of electrons are given below. Arrange them in order of increasing energies.

a) n = 4, l = 2, m_{l} = -2, m_{s} = +\(\frac{1}{2}\)

b) n = 3, l = 2, m_{l} = -1, m_{s} = –\(\frac{1}{2}\)

c) n = 4, l = 1, m_{l} = 0, m_{s} = +\(\frac{1}{2}\)

d) n = 3, l = 1, m_{l} = -1, m_{s} = –\(\frac{1}{2}\)

Answer:

a) n = 4, l = 2, → 4d

b) n = 3, l = 2, → 3d

c) n = 4, l = 1, → 4p

d) n = 3, l = 1, → 3p

∴ 3p < 3d < 4p < 4d

According (n + l) values

Hence d < b < c < a is order of increasing energy.

Question 52.

The work function for Cesium atom is 1.9 eV. Calculate the threshold frequency of the radiation. If the Cesium element is irradiated with a wavelength of 500 nm, calculate the kinetic energy of the ejected photoelectron?

Answer:

Case-I

Photo electric effect equation is

hv = hv_{0} + 1/2 mv^{2}

w = hv_{0}

Case-II

Photo electric effect equation is

E = \(\frac{\mathrm{hc}}{\lambda}\)

= \(\frac{6.625 \times 10^{-34} \times 3 \times 10^8}{5 \times 10^{-7}}\)

= \(\frac{19.878 \times 10^{-26}}{5 \times 10^{-7}}\)

= 3.9756 × 10^{-19} J.

Given work function hv_{0} = 1.9 ev

= 1.9 × 1.602 × 10^{-19}J.

Kinetic Energy (KE) = \(\frac{1}{2} m v^2\)

From Photo electric effect

\(\frac{1}{2} m v^2\) = hv – hv_{0}

K.E. = 3.9756 × 10^{-19} × 1.602 × 10^{-19}

= 3.9756 × 10^{-19} – 3.0438 × 10^{-19} = 0.9318 × 10^{-19} = 9.318 × 10^{-20}J.

Question 53.

Calculate the wavelength for the emission transition if it starts from the orbit having radius 1.3225 nm and ends at 211.6 pm. Name the series to which this transition belongs and the region of the spectrum.

Answer:

Given the radius of orbit from which it started = 1.35225 × 10^{-9} m = 1 3.225Å

In general radius of orbit = 0.529 × n^{2}Å

n^{2} = \(\frac{13.225}{0.529}\) = 25

n^{2} = 25 ⇒ n = 5

Given that the

Radius of orbit at which the transition ended = 211.6 pm

= 211.6 × 10^{-12}m

= 2.116A

Similarly as above

n^{2} = \(\frac{2.116}{0.529}\) = 4

n^{2} = 4 ⇒ n = 2

∴ transition takes place from n = 5 to n = 2 level

∴ spectral lines are obtained in Balmer series (visible region)

The ejection of electrons from a metal surface, when the radiations of suitable frequency strikes the metal surface is called photoelectric effect.

Explanation using Einstein’s quantum theory:

1) To explain photoelectric effect, Einstein utilised Quantum theory.

2) When a photon strikes metal surface, it uses some part of its energy to eject the electron from the metal atom. The remaining part of the total energy is given to the ejected electrons in the form of kinetic energy.

Hence we can write hv = W + KE ⇒ hv = hv_{0} + \(\frac{1}{2} m_e v^2\)

where hv = energy of photon,

v_{0} = Threshold frequency,

m_{e} = mass of electron

W = energy required to overcome the attractive forces on the electron in the metal (work function)

KE = kinetic energy of ejected electron,

V = Velocity of ejected electron.

3) If a photon of sufficient energy struck the metal surface and could eject the electron. But if a photon has insufficient energy, it cannot eject the electron from the metal.

eg. : A photon of violet light [high frequency] can eject the electrons from the surface of potassium but a photon of red light [low frequency] cannot eject the electrons.

Question 56.

Explain Rutherford’s nuclear model of an atom. What are its drawbacks?

Answer:

Rutherford’s Planetary model: Rutherford drew some conclusions regarding the structure of atom.

- Most of the space in the atom is empty (as most of the α – particles passed through the foil undeflected).
- A few — positive charges were deflected. The deflection must be due to enormous repulsive force showing that the positive charge of the atom is not spread throughout the atom as Thomson predicted. The positive charge is concentrated in a very small volume. Which is responsible for the deflection of α — particles.

On the basis of the above observations. Rutherford proposed the nuclear model. According to his model.

- The positive charge in the atom is concentrated in the small dense portion, called the NUCLEUS.
- The nucleus is surrounded by the electrons that move around it in circular paths called the ORBITS. Thus Rutherford’s model resembles the solar system.
- Electrons and the nucleus are held together by electrostatic forces of attraction.

Drawbacks of Rutherford model:

1. Rutherford’s atomic model of an atom is like a small scale solar system. This similarity suggests that electrons should move around the nucleus in well defined orbits. However, when a body is moving, it undergoes acceleration. According to electromagnetic theory, charged particles, when accelerated, should emit radiation. Therefore, an electron in an orbit will emit radiation, thus the orbit will continue to shrink. But this does not happen. Thus Rutherford’s model cannot explain the stability of the atom.

2. If we assume that electrons as stationary around the nucleus, the electrostatic attraction between the nucleus and the electrons would pull the electrons towards the nucleus to form a miniature version of Thomson’s model.

3. Rutherford model does not explain the electronic structure of the atom i.e., how the electrons are distributed around the nucleus and what are the energies of these electrons.

Before studying further developments that lead to the formulation of various atomic models, it is necessary to study about light and its nature.

Question 57.

Explain briefly the Planck’s quantum theory.

Answer:

The postulates. of Planck’s quantum theory are

a) The emission of radiation is due to vibrations of charged particles (electrons) in the body.

b) The emission is not continuous but in discrete packets of energy called quanta. This emitted radiation propagates in the form of waves.

c) The energy (E) associated with each quantum for a particular radiation of frequency V is given by E = hv, Here ‘h’ is Planck’s constant.

d) A body can emit or absorb either one quantum (hv) of energy or some whole number multiple of it. Thus energy can be emitted or absorbed as hv, 2hv, 3hv etc., but not fractional values. This is called quantisation of energy.

e) The emitted radiant energy is propagated in the form of waves.

f) Values of Planck’s constant in various units:

h = 6.6256 × 10^{-27} erg.sec (or) g cm^{2}s^{-1}

= 6.6256 × 10^{-34}J.s (or) kg m^{2}s^{-1} = 1.58 × 10^{-34} cal.s.

Success of Planck’s quantum theory: This theory successfully explains the black body radiations. A black body is a perfect absorber and also a perfect radiator of radiations.

Question 58.

What are the postulates of Bohr’s model of hydrogen atom? Discuss the importance of this model to explain various series of line spectra In hydrogen atom. (T.S. Mar. ‘16)(A.P. Mar.’15. ‘13)

Answer:

Niels Bohr quantitatively gave the general features of hydrogen atom structure and it’s spectrum. His theory is used to evaluate several points in the atomic structure and spectra.

The postulates of Bohr atomic model for hydrogen as follows

Postulates : –

- The electron in the hydrogen atom can revolve around the nucleus in a circular path of fixed radius and energy. These paths are called orbits (or) stationary states. These circular orbits are concentric (having same center) around the nucleus.
- The energy of an electron in the orbit does not change with time.
- When an electron moves from lower stationary state to higher stationary state absorption of energy takes place.
- When an electron moves from higher stationary state to lower stationary state emission of energy takes place.
- When an electronic transition takes place between two stationary states that differ in energy by ΔE is given by

ΔE = E_{2}– E_{1}= hv

∴ The frequency of radiation absorbed (or) emitted v = \(\frac{E_2-E_1}{h}\) E_{1}and E_{2}are energies of lower, higher energy states respectively. - The angular momentum of an electron is given by mvr = \(\frac{\mathrm{nh}}{2 \pi}\)

An electron revolve only in the orbits for which it’s angular momentum is integral multiple of \(\frac{\mathrm{h}}{2 \pi}\)

Line spectra of hydrogen, Bohr’s Theory:

- In case of hydrogen atom line spectrum is observed and this can be explained by using Bohr’s Theory.
- According to Bohr’s postulate when an electronic transition takes place between two stationary states that differ in energy is given by

- In case of absorption spectrum n
_{f}> n_{i}→ energy is absorbed (+ve) energy is absorbed (+Ve)

- In case of emission spectrum n
_{i}> n_{f}→ energy is emitted (- Ve) - Each spectral line in absorption (or) emission spectrum associated to the particular transition in hydrogen atom
- In case of large no.of hydrogen atoms large no.of transitions possible they rsults in large no.of spectral lines.

The series of lines observed in hydrogen spectra are

Question 59.

Explain the success of Bohr’s theory for hydrogen atom.

Answer:

Succes of Bohrs Theory for hydrogen atom:

- Bohr’s theory gave the information about the principal quantum number. Principal quantum number represents the stationary states. (n = 1, 2, 3 integral numbers)
- Bohr’s theory gave the information about the radius of the stationary states (or) orbits.

r = 0.529 × n^{2}A (or)

r = 52.9 × n^{2}pm

\(\left[r=\frac{n^2 h^2}{4 \pi^2 m e^2}\right]\) (for hydrogenation) - This theory gave the information about the energy of the electron of particular stationary state.

E_{n}= -R_{H}\(\left[\frac{1}{n^2}\right]\)n = 1, 2, 3,……

R_{H}= Ryd berg constant

= 1,09,677 cm^{-1}. - This theory explained the line spectra of hydrogenation.
- This theory can also be applicable to the ions containing only one electron. Eg. : He
^{+}, Li^{+2}, Be^{+3}…. - This theory can also gave information about velocity of electrons moving in the orbits.

Question 60.

What are the consequences that lead to the development of quantum mechanical model of an atom?

Answer:

Consequences that lead to development of quantum mechanical model of an atom are as follows.

- Clàssical mechanics successfully explained the motion of macro scopic objects.

Eg: Falling stone, Planets etc.,. - Classical mechanics failed to explain the motion of microscopic objects like electrons, atoms, molecules etc.
- Classical mechanics ignores the concept of dual behaviour of matter and especially for sub atomic particles

Quantum mechanics:

The Branch of science deals with the dual behaviour of matter is called quantum mechanics. - This deals with the motions of microscopic objects like electron.

Important features of quantum mechanical model of atom:

- The energy of electrons in an atom is quantized (it can only have certain specific values).
- The existence of quantized electronic energy levels is a direct result of the wave like properties at electrons and are allowed solution at schrodinger wave equations.
- All the information about the electron in an atom is contained in its orbital wave function ‘\(\Psi^{\prime}\) and quantum mechanics makes it possible to extract this information from ‘\(\Psi^{\prime}\).
- The path of the electron can never be determined accurately. Therefore, we find only the probability of the electron at different points in space, around an atom.
- The probability of finding an electron at a point within an atom is proportional to the square of the orbital wave function i.e., \(|\Psi|^2\) at that point. \(|\Psi|^2\) is known as probability density and is always positive. From the value of \(|\Psi|^2\) at different points with in the atom, it is possible to

predict the region around the nucleus where electron will most probably be found.

Question 61.

Explain the salient features of quantum mechanical model of an atom.

Answer:

Important features of quantum mechanical model of atom:

- The energy of electrons in an atom is quantized (it can only have certain specific values).
- The existence of quantized electronic energy levels is a direct result of the wave like properties at electrons and are allowed solution at schrodinger wave equations.
- All the information about the electron in an atom is contained in its orbital wave function ‘\(\Psi^{\prime \prime}\) and quantum mechanics makes it possible to extract this information from \(\Psi^{\prime \prime}\).
- The path of the electron can never be determined accurately. Therefore, we find only the probability of the electron at different points in space, around an atom.
- The probability of finding an electron at a point within an atom is proportional to the square of the

Question 62.

What are the limitations of Bohr’s model of an atom?

Answer:

Limitations:

- Spectra of multielectron atoms: Bohr’s theory could explain the spectra of Hydrogen and single electron species like He
^{+}, Li^{2+}, Be^{3+}, but it fails to explain the spectra of multielectron atoms. - Fine structure: It fails to explain this fine structure of Hydrogen atom.
- Splitting up of spectral lines : The theory fails to explain Zeeman effect and Stark effect.

The splitting up of spectral lines when an atom is subjected to strong magnetic field is called Zeeman effect.

The splitting up of spectral lines when an atom is subjected to strong electric field is called Stark effect. - Flat model: Bohr’s theory gives a flat model of the orbits. Bohr’s theory predicts definite orbits for electrons considering them as particles. But according to de Brogue electron has both wave nature and particle nature. Bohr’s theory cannot explain this dual role.
- It fails to support the uncertainty principle proposed by Heisenberg.
- It could not explain the ability of atoms to form molecules by chemical bonds.

Question 63.

What are the evidences in favour of dual behaviour of electron?

Answer:

- The particle nature of light explains the phenomenon of blackbody radiations and photo electric effect but it could not explain about wave nature of light.
- Wave nature of light explains the phenomenon of interference and diffraction.
- So, light has dual nature i.e it behaves as a wave (or) as a stream of particles.
- According to de-Broglie, light has dual behaviour i.e both particle and wave nature.

de-Broglies gave the following relationship

λ = \(\frac{\mathrm{h}}{\mathrm{mv}}\) = \(\frac{h}{p}\)

λ = wave length

P = momentum - Heisen bergs uncertainty principle also a consequence of dual behaviour of matter and radiation.

Statement :— It is impossible to determine simultaneously, the exact momentum and exact position of a small particle like lectron.

Δx × Δp ≥ \(\frac{h}{4 \pi}\)

Δx = uncertainty in position

Δp = uncertainty in momentum

Question 64.

How are the quantum numbers n, l and m_{l}, arrived at? Explain the significance of these quantum numbers. (A.P. Mar. ‘16)(T.S. Mar. ‘15, ‘14)

Answer:

- In general a large no.of orbitals are possible in an atom.
- These orbitaIs are distinguished by their size, shape and orientation.
- An orbital of smaller size means there is more chance to find electron near the nucleus.
- Atomic orbitals are precisely distinguished by quantum numbers. Each orbital is designated by three major quantum numbers.

1) Principal quantum number (n)

2) Azimuthal quantum number (l)

3) Magnetic quantum number (m)

1) Principal quantum number : The principal quantum number was introduced by Neils Bohr. It reveals the size of the atom (main energy levels). With increase in the value of ‘n’ the distance between the nucleus and the orbit also increases.

It is denoted by the letter ‘n’. It can have any simple integer value 1, 2, 3, ……. but not zero. These are also termed as K, L, M, N etc.

The radius and energy of an orbit can be determined basing on ”n” value.

The radius of n^{th} orbit is r_{n} = \(\frac{n^2 h^2}{4 \pi^2 m e^2}\)

The energy of n^{th} orbet is E_{n} = \(\frac{-2 \pi^2 m e^4}{n^2 h^2}\)

2) Azimuthal quantum number: It was proposed by Sommerfeld. it is also known as angular momentum quantum number or subsidiary quantum number.

it indicates the shapes of orbitals. It is denoted by ‘l’. The values of ‘l’ depend on the values of ‘n’, ‘l’ has values ranging from ‘0 to (n – 1) i.e.. l = 0, 1, 2,….. (n – 1). The maximum number of electrons present in the subshells s, p, d, f are 2, 6, 10, 14 respectively.

3) Magnetic quantum number: It was proposed by Lande. It shows the orientation of the orbitals in space. ‘p’ — orbital has three orientations. The orbital oriented along the x-axis is called p_{x} orbital, along the y-axis is called p_{y} -orbital and along the z-axis is called p_{z} orbital. In a similar way d – orbital has five orientations. They are d_{xy}, d_{yz}, d_{zx}, d_{x2 – y2} and d_{z2}. It is denoted by ‘m’. Its values depends on azimuthal quantum number, ‘m’ can have all the integral values from -l to +l including zero. The total number of ‘m’ values are (2l + 1).

Question 65.

Explain the dual behaviour of matter. Discuss its significance to microscopic particles like electrons.

Answer:

- The particle nature of light explains the phenomenon of blackbody radiations and photo electric effect but it couldnot explain about wave nature of light.
- Wave nature of light explains the phenomenon of interference and diffraction.
- So, light has dual nature i.e it behaves as a wave (or) as a stream of particles.
- According to de-Broglie light has dual behaviour i.e both particle and wave nature.

de-Broglies gave the following relationship

λ = \(\frac{\mathrm{h}}{\mathrm{mv}}\) = \(\frac{h}{p}\)

λ = wavelength

P = momentum - Heisen bergs uncertainty principle also a consequence of dual behaviour of matter and radiation.

Statement :— It is impossible to determine simultaneously, the exact momentum and exact position of a small particle like electron.

Δx × Δp ≥ \(\frac{h}{4 \pi}\) = uncertainty in position

Δx = uncertainty in position

Δp = uncertainty in momentum

Significance of Uncertainty Principle:

- This principle rules out the existence of definite paths or trajectories of electrons and other similar

particles. - This principle is significant only for motion of microscopic objects and is negligible for that of macroscopic objects.
- In dealing with milligram size or heavier objects, the associated uncertainties are hardly of any real consequence.

Question 66.

What are various ranges of electromagnetic radiation ? Explain the characteristics of electromagnetic radiation.

(or)

Explain diagrammatically the boundary surfaces for three 2p orbitais and five 3d

Answer:

Electromagnetic radiation : When electrically charged particle is accelerated alternating electric and magnetic fields are produced and transmitted. These fields are transmitted in the form of waves called electromagnetic waves or electromagnetic radiation.

Important Characteristics of a wave:

1) These are produced by oscillating charged particles in a body.

2) These radiations can pass through vacuum also. So medium for transmission is not required.

3) Velocity (c) : It is defined as the linear distance travelled by the wave in one second.

Units : cm sec^{-1} (or) m see^{-1}

All kinds of electromagnetic waves have the same velocity.

(3 × 10^{8} m sec^{-1} or 3 × 10^{10} cm sec^{-1})

4) Wavelength (λ) : It is defined as the distance between any two successive crests or troughs of wavez.

Units:A ; m ; cm ; nm or pm 1 A° = 10^{-10} m

1 nm = 10^{-9} m = 10^{-7} cm

1 pm = 10^{-12}m.

5) Frequency (v): It is defined as the number of waves passing through a point in one second.

Units: Hertz (Hz); cycles sec^{-1} or sec^{-1}.

v = \(\frac{c}{\lambda}\)

6) Wave number (\(\bar{v}\)): It is defined as the number of waves present in one unit length. It is equal

to the reciprocal of the wavelength.

\(\bar{v}=\frac{1}{\lambda}=\frac{v}{c}\)

Relation between wavelength and frequency :

c = v × λ ⇒ v = \(\frac{c}{\lambda}\)

7) Amplitude (A) is the height of the crest (or) depth of through of a wave, It determines intensity (or) brightness of the wave.

Question 67.

Define atomic orbital. Explain the shapes of s, p and d orbitals with the help of diagrams.

Answer:

Atomic orbital : A three dimensional space around the nucleus in an atom. Where the probability of finding an electron is maximum (i.e.,) \(\Psi^2\) is maximum is called an atomic orbital.

Shapes of orbitals:

a) s – orbital : Boundary surface diagram for ‘s’ orbital is spherical in shape, ‘s – orbitals are spherically symmetric (i.e.,) the probability of finding the electron at a given distance is equal in all directions.

b) p – orbitals : p – orbital consists of two sections called lobes that are either side of the plane that passes through the nucleus. The size, shape and energy of the three orbitals are identical. They differ only in the orientation. These are mutually perpendicular to each other and oriented along x, y and z axes. Each p-orbital is of dumb-bell shape.

c) d – orbitals: Five d-orbitals are designated as d_{xy}, d_{yz}, d_{zx}, d_{x2 – y2} and d_{z2}. The shapes of first four d – orbitals are similar to each other of double dumb-bell whereas that of the fifth one dd_{z2} is different from others, but all five d-orbitals are equivalent in energy.

Question 68.

Illustrate the reasons for the stability of completely filled and half filled subshells.

Answer:

Chromium and Copper shows anamalous electronic configurations

Cr – [Ar] 4s^{1} 3d^{5}

Cu – [Ar] 4^{1} 3d^{10}

- Cr — gets half filled 3d— shell electronic configuration.
- Cu — gets full filled 3d— shell electronic configuration.
- Half filled and full filled subshells are more stable than others.

Causes of Stability of Completely filled and Half filled Sub-shells

The completely filled and half filled sub-shells are stable due to the following reasons :

1. Symmetrical distribution of electrons : It is well known that symmetry leads to stability. The completely filled or half filled subshells have symmetrical distribution of electrons in them and are therefore more stable. Electrons in the same subshell (here 3d) have equal energy but different spatial distribution, Consequently, their shielding of one another is relatively small and the electrons are more strongly attracted by the nucleus.

2. Exchange Energy: The stabilizing effect arises whenever two or more electrons with the same spin are present in the degenerate orbitals of a subshell. These electrons tend to exchange their positions and the energy released due to this exchange is called exchange energy. The number of exchanges that can take place is maximum when the subshell is either half filled or completely filled.

As a result the exchange energy is maximum and so is the stability.

The extra stability of half-filled and completely filled subshell is due to:

- relatively small shielding,
- smaller coulombic repulsion energy and
- larger exchange energy.

Question 69.

Explain emission and absorption spectra. Discuss the general description of line spectra in hydrogen atom.

Answer:

Emission spectrum:

- It is produced by analysing the radiant energy emitted by an excited substance.
- It consists of bright lines on dark background.
- Produced due to the emission of energy by electrons.
- Emission spectra contains bright lines on dark background.

Absorption spectrum:

- It is produced when white light is passed through a substance and the transmitted light is analysed by a spectrograph.
- It consists of dark lines on bright background.
- Produced due to the adsorption of energy by electrons.
- Absorption spectra contains dark lines on bright background.

Line spectra of Hydrogen — Bohrs Theory:- In case of hydrogen atom line spectrum is observed and this can be explained by using Bohr’s Theory.
- According to Bohrs postulate when an electronic transition takes place between two stationary states that differ in energy is given by

ΔE = E_{f}– E_{i}

E_{f}= final orbit energy

E_{i}= initial orbit energy

In terms of wave numbers

- In case of absorption spectrum n
_{f}> n_{i}→ energy is absorbed (+ Ve) - In case of emission spectrum n
_{i}> n_{f}→ energy is emitted (- Ve) - Each spectral line in absorption (or) emission spectrum associated to the particular transition in hydrogen atom
- In case of large no.of hydrogen atoms large no.of transitions possible they results in large no.of spectral lines.

The Spectral Lines for Atomic Hydrogen

Solved Problems

Question 1.

Calculate the num Notons, neutrons and electrons species?

Solution:

In this case, \({ }_{35}^{80} \mathrm{Br}\), Z = 35, 80, species is neutral

Number of protons = number of electrons = Z = 35

Number of neutrons = 80 – 35 = 45, Mass number (A) = number of protons (Z) + number of neutrons (n).

Question 2.

The number of electrons, protons and neutrons in a species are equal to 18, 16 and 16 respectively. Assign the proper symbol to the species.

Solution:

The atomic number is equal to number of protons =16. The element is sulphur (S).

Atomic mass number = number of protons + number of neutrons = 16 + 16 = 32

Species is not neutral as the number of protons is not equal to electrons. It is anion (negatively charged) with charge equal to excess electrons = 18 – 16 = 2.

Symbol is \(\frac{32}{16} \mathrm{~s}^{2-}\)

Note: Before using the notation find out whether the speclés is a neutral atom, acation or an anion, If it is a neutral atom, Atomic number (Z) = number of protons in the nucleus of an atom = number of electrons in a neutral atom is valid, i.e., number of protons = number of electrons = atomic number. If the species is an ion, determine whether the number of protons are larger (cation, positive ion) or smaller (anion, negative ion) than the number of electrons. Number of neutrons is always given by A-Z, whether the species is neutral or ion.

Question 3.

The Vividh Bharati station of All India Radio, Delhi, broadcasts on a frequency of 1,368 kHz (kilo hertz). Calculate the wavelength of the electro-magnetic radiation emitted by transmitter. Which part of the electromagnetic specturm does it belong to?

Solution:

The wavelength, λ, is equal to c/v. where c is the speed of electromagnetic radiation in vacuum and v is the frequency. Substituting the given values, we have

Question 4.

The wavelength range of the visible spectrum extends from violet (400 nm) to red (750 nm). Express these wave

lengths in frequencies (Hz). (1 nm = 10^{-9} m).

Solution:

Using c = v λ frequency of violet light.

V = \(\frac{\mathrm{c}}{\mathrm{v}}=\frac{3.00 \times 10^8 \mathrm{~ms}^{-1}}{400 \times 10^{-9} \mathrm{~m}}\)

= 7.50 × 10^{14} Hz

Frequency of red light

v = \(\frac{c}{v}=\frac{3.00 \times 10^8 \mathrm{~ms}^{-1}}{750 \times 10^{-9} \mathrm{~m}}\) = 4.00 × 10^{14} Hz

The range of visible spectrum is from

4.0 × 10^{14} to 7.5 × 10^{14}Hz in terms of frequency units.

Question 5.

Calculate

(a) wave number and

(b) frequency of yellow radiation having wavelength 5000 A.

Solution:

(a) Calculation of wavenumber \((\bar{v})\)

λ = 5800 A = 5800 × 10^{-8} cm

= 5800 × 10^{-10}m

\((\bar{v})\) = \(\frac{1}{\lambda}=\frac{1}{5800 \times 10^{-10} \mathrm{~m}}\)

= 1.724 × 10^{6}m^{-1}

= 1.724 × 10^{4} cm^{-1}

Question 6.

Calculate energy of one mole of photons of radiation whose frequency is 5 × 10^{14} Hz.

Solution:

Energy (E) of one photon is given by the expression

E = hv .

h = 6.626 × 10^{-34} J s

v = 5 × 10^{14} s^{-1} (given)

E = (6.626 × 10^{-34}J s) × (5 × 10^{14} s^{-1})

= 3.313 × 10^{-19} J

Energy of one mole of photons

= (3.313 × 10^{-19}J) × (6.022 × 10^{23} mol^{-1})

= 199.51 kJ mol^{-1}.

Question 7.

A 100 watt bulb emits monochromatic light of wavelength 400 nm. Calculate the number of photons emitted per second by the bulb.

Solution:

Power of the bulb = 100 watt

= 100 J s^{-1}

Energy of one photon E = hv = hc/λ.

= \(\frac{6.626 \times 10^{-34} \mathrm{Js} \times 3 \times 10^8 \mathrm{~m} \mathrm{~s}^{-1}}{400 \times 10^{-19} \mathrm{~m}}\)

= 4.969 × 10^{-19}J

Number of photons emitted

\(\frac{100 \mathrm{~J} \mathrm{~s}^{-1}}{4.969 \times 10^{-19} \mathrm{~J}}\) = 2.012 × 10^{20} s^{-1}

Question 8.

When electromagnetic radiation of wavelength 300 nm falls on the surface of sodium, electrons are emitted with a kinetic energy of 1.68 × 10^{5} J mol^{-1}. What is the minimum energy needed to remove an electron from sodium? What is the maximum wavelength that will cause a photoelectron to be emitted?

Solution:

The energy (E) of a 300 nm photon is given by

hv = hc/λ.

= \(\frac{6.626 \times 10^{-34} \mathrm{Js} \times 3.0 \times 10^8 \mathrm{~m} \mathrm{~s}^{-1}}{300 \times 10^{-9} \mathrm{~m}}\)

= 6.626 × 10^{-19} J

The energy of one mole of photons

= 6.626 × 10^{-19} J × 6.022 × 10^{23} mol^{-1}

= 3.99 × 10^{5} mol^{-1}

The minimum energy needed to remove one mole of electrons from sodium

= (3.99 – 1.68) 10^{5} J mol^{-1}

= 2.31 × 10^{5} J mol^{-1}

The minimum energy for one electron

= \(\frac{2.31 \times 10^5 \mathrm{~J} \mathrm{~mol}^{-1}}{6.022 \times 10^{23} \text { elelctrons } \mathrm{mol}^{-1}}\)

= 3.84 × 10^{-19}J

This corresponds to the wavelength

∴ λ = \(\frac{\mathrm{hc}}{\mathrm{E}}\)

= \(\frac{6.626 \times 10^{-34} \mathrm{~J} \mathrm{~s} \times 3.0 \times 10^8 \mathrm{~m} \mathrm{~s}^{-1}}{3.84 \times 10^{-9} \mathrm{~J}}\)

= 517 nm

(This corresponds to green light)

Question 9.

The threshold frequency v_{0} for a metal is 7.0 × 10^{14} s^{-1}. Calculate the kinetic energy of an electron emitted when radiation of frequency v = 1.0 × 10^{15} s^{-1} hits the metal.

Solution:

According to Einstein’s equation

Kinetic energy = 1/2 m_{e}v^{2} = h(v – v_{0})

= (6.626 × 10^{-34} J s)

(1.0 × 10^{15} s^{-1} – 7.0 × 10^{14} s^{-1})

= (6.626 × 10^{-34} J s)

(10.0 × 10^{14}s^{-1} – 7.0 × 10^{14}s^{-1})

= (6.626 × 10^{-34} J s)

(3.0 × 10^{14}s^{-1}) = 1.988 × 10^{-19} J

Question 10.

What are the frequency and wave-length of a photon emitted during a transition from n = 5 state to the n = 2 state in the hydrogen atom?

Solution:

Since n_{1} = 5 and n_{f} = 2, this transition gives rise to a spectral line in the visible region of the Balmer series. From ΔE = \(\mathrm{R}_{\mathrm{H}}\left(\frac{1}{\mathrm{n}_i^2}-\frac{1}{\mathrm{n}_{\mathrm{f}}^2}\right)\)

= 2.18 × 10^{-18}J\(\left(\frac{1}{n_i^2}-\frac{1}{n_f^2}\right)\)

ΔE = 2.18 × 10^{-18}J\(\left(\frac{1}{5^2}-\frac{1}{2^2}\right)\)

= -4.58 × 10^{-19} J.

It is an emission energy.

λ = \(\frac{\mathrm{h}}{\mathrm{mv}}\) = \(\frac{\left(6.626 \times 10^{-34} \mathrm{Js}\right)}{(0.1 \mathrm{~kg})\left(10 \mathrm{~m} \mathrm{~s}^{-1}\right)}\)

= 6.626 × 10^{-34}m (J = kg m^{2} s^{-2})

Solution:

λ = 3.6 A = 36 × 10^{-10} m

Velocity of photon = velocity of light

m = \(\frac{\mathrm{h}}{\lambda v}=\frac{6.626 \times 10^{-34} \mathrm{Js}}{\left(3.6 \times 10^{-10} \mathrm{~m}\right)\left(3 \times 10^8 \mathrm{~m} \mathrm{~s}^{-1}\right)}\)

= 6.135 × 10^{-29}kg

Question 15.

A microscope using suitable photons is employed to locate an electron in an atom within a distance of 0.1 A. What

is the uncertainty involved in the measurement of its velocity?

Solution:

∆x ∆p = \(\frac{h}{4 \pi}\) or ∆x m∆v = \(\frac{h}{4 \pi}\)

∆v = \(\frac{h}{4 \pi \Delta x m}\)

∆v = \(\frac{6.626 \times 10^{-34} \mathrm{Js}}{4 \times 3.14 \times 0.1 \times 10^{-10} \mathrm{~m} \times 9.1 \times 10^{31} \mathrm{kc}}\)

= 0.579 × 10^{7} m s^{-1} (1 J = 1 kg m^{2} s^{-2})

= 5.79 × 10^{6} ms^{-1}

Question 16.

A golf ball has a mass of 40g and a speed of 45 m/s. If the speed can be measured within accuracy of 2%, calculate the uncertainty in the position.

Solution:

The uncertainty in the speed is 2%, i.e.,

4 × \(\frac{2}{100}\) = 0.9 ms^{-1}

Using the λ = \(\frac{\mathrm{h}}{\mathrm{mv}}=\frac{\mathrm{h}}{\mathrm{p}}\)

Δx = \(\frac{h}{4 \pi m \Delta v}\)

= \(\frac{6.626 \times 10^{-34} \mathrm{Js}}{4 \times 3.14 \times 40 \mathrm{~g} \times 10^{-3} \mathrm{~kg} \mathrm{~g}^{-1}\left(0.9 \mathrm{~ms}^{-1}\right)}\)

= 1.46 × 10^{-33} m

This is nearly \(\sim\) 10^{18} times smaller than the diameter of a typical atomic nucleus. As mentioned earlier for large particles, the uncertainty principle sets no meaningful limit to the precision of measurements.

Question 17.

What is the total number of orbitals associated with the principal quantum number n = 3?

Solution:

For n = 3, the possible values of 1 are 0, 1 and 2. Thus there is one 3s orbital (n = 3, l = 0 and m_{l} = 0); there are three 3p orbitals

(n = 3, 1 = 1 and m_{l} = -1, 0, +1); there are five 3d orbitais (n = 3, l = 2 and m_{l} = -2, -1, 0, +1, +2).

Therefore, the total number of orbitals is 1 + 3 + 5 = 9

The same value can also be obtained by using the relation; number of orbitals = n^{2},

i.e. 3^{2} = 9

Question 18.

Using s, p, d, f notations, describe the orbital with the following quantum numbers

Solution:

Ryd berg’s equation \(\bar{v}\) = \(\frac{1}{\lambda}\) = \(\mathrm{R}_{\mathrm{H}}\left[\frac{1}{\mathrm{n}_1^2}-\frac{1}{\mathrm{n}_2^2}\right]\)

For the 1^{st} line of Balmer series

n_{1} = 2, n_{2} = 3

R = 1,09,677 cm^{-1}

\(\bar{v}\) = \(\frac{1}{\lambda}\) = 1,09,677\(\left[\frac{1}{2^2}-\frac{1}{3^2}\right]\)

= 1,09,677 × \(\frac{5}{36}\)

Wave no. \((\bar{v})\) = 15232.9 cm^{-1}

Wave length λ = \(\frac{1}{\bar{v}}\) = \(\frac{1}{15232.9}\) = 6.5 × 10^{-5} cm^{-1}

Solution:

Z_{2}(li)=3

Z_{1} (He) = 2

\(\frac{r_1}{r_2}\) = \(\frac{Z_2}{Z_1}\) = \(\frac{3}{2}\) = 3 : 2

= \(\sqrt{2(2+1)} \frac{h}{2 \lambda}\)

= \(\frac{\sqrt{6 h}}{2 \lambda}\)
