Atomic Structure and Periodic Trends

  • Great notes to be found for the whole unit here!
  • Calendar here.

Bohr Model and Emission Spectroscopy

Periodic Trends

  • Ionization Energy Data to graph There are 2 graphs to make. One is just a graph of all 20 ionization energies for Calcium (first tab). The second is a graph with three sets of data on it – the 1st, 2nd, 3rd ionization energies for the first 20 elements.
