Structure of Atom

  • In this chapter we learn about the sub atomic particles (electrons, protons and neutrons). Then we study about Thomson Model of Atom, Rutherford’s Nuclear Model of Atom. Then we discuss about Atomic number and Mass number, Isobars and Isotopes. Then we learn about the Bohr’s model of atom, wave nature and particle nature of electromagnetic radiation, photoelectric effect, Dual behaviour of electromagnetic radiation. Then we discuss about atomic spectra : emission and absorption spectra, line spectrum of hydrogen, then we study about Bohr’s model for hydrogen atom then we discuss dual behaviour of matter and Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle which leads towards the quantum mechanical model of atom and at last we discuss quantum mechanical model of atom.
