CHM1311/CHM1711: Midterm 1: Atoms, Lights and Chemical Bonding

CHM1311/CHM1711: Midterm 1: Atoms, Lights and Chemical Bonding


  • Understand composition of atoms and calculate atomic volume
  • Apply the fundamentals of light equations to midterm-like problems
  • Interpret/draw absorption and emission light spectra (i.e. energy-level diagrams)
  • Calculate energies of electrons in hydrogen atoms
  • Learn to identify and understand trends of the periodic table (i.e. electron affinity, atom radius and ionization energy)
  • Understand the Born-Haber cycle to predict energy change of a reaction
  • Get a clear understanding of atomic orbitals (s, p, d, f) and their respective structures
  • Learn to use the periodic table to write simplified and expanded electron configurations
  • Understand bonding and antibonding orbital and learn to identify/draw them
  • Draw orbital energy diagrams
  • Write out a description of size (s), shape (l) and orientation (ml) of an electron using quantum numbers
  • Steps and technique will be explained for molecular shapes using VSEPR
  • Many examples from midterms administered at uOttawa
