Diagnostic test Try this test at the start of the unit. If you score more than 80%, then use this unit as a revision for yourself and scan through the text. If you score less than 80% then work through the text and re-test yourself at the end by using this same test.
The answers are at the end of the unit. 1 What is an absorption spectrum? 2 Which have the greater energy, electrons close to or further from the nucleus? 3 Why can atoms only absorb light of characteristic wavelength? 4 Which energy level is furthest from the nucleus, n = 1 or n = 4? 5 What name is given to orbitals for which (a) I = 0 (b) I = 1 (c) I = 2 (d) I = 3? 6 How many p-orbitals are there in each energy level? 7 How many d-orbitals are there in each energy level? 8 How many f-orbitals are there in each energy level?
He’ is the symbol for helium. All elements are represented by symbols. Mostly the symbol is a two letter abbreviation; very often they are the first two letters of the element’s name. Sometimes, particularly for the elements that have been known for a long time, the symbol is just the first letter of its name. Sometimes this rule won’t work at all because another element has already been given that abbreviation, and the symbol has to be based on the Latin name for the element. For example, carbon is ‘C’.
