The collision of a neutral atom with a fast-moving atom, molecule, or electron will under suitable conditions result in the excitation or ionization of the atom.

This anomaly will be discussed in Sec. In other words each degree of freedom should be fixed by its own separate quantum number. At about the same time Heisenberg 2 put forward an independent theory of quantum dynamics or matrix mechanics which was so successful in its general applications that it attracted wide attention.

The first three members of this series are in the infra-red and are not readily accessible to photography. Known ionization potentials for the elements in the periodic table are given in Fig. Believing that frequent comparison with the observed spectral lines, by giving actual reproductions of spectrograms, is all too often neglected, the author has spent a great deal of time in photographing many of the spectra used as illustrations.

This may be illus- 1 Rydberg, J. For a 2p electron of hydrogen, show that Eq. Hyperfine Structure and the Land6 Interval Rule. Bohr not only gave a satisfactory account of the Balmer, Lyman, and Paschen series of hydrogen and the Pickering series of ionized helium but also calculated from purely theo- retical considerations the value of the Rydberg constant.


This is exemplified by the photograph of the Lyman series When the velocity has increased sufficiently to excite sodium atoms, inelastic collisions occur. LS- or Russell- Saunders Coupling. IV of the electron, i. A photograph of the latter series is shown in Fig. That such states should exist is shown experimentally by the observation of a continuous band of radiation starting at the series limit of the Balmer series of hydrogen and extending some little distance to shorter wave- lengths, i.

Successful attempts to calculate suitable values of p from quantum-mechanical density-distribution curves similar to those shown in Figs. V to radon 86, completes the third long period. The first excitation potential and the ionization potential of each of the alkali metals are given in Table 6.

Disregarding nuclear spin the atom core, as we shall see later, contributes nothing to the total angular momentum of the atom. It is to be noted that the inert gases show the largest ionization potentials and the alkali metals the smallest.

Sunlight confined to a small pencil of rays by means of a hole in a diaphragm and then allowed to pass through a prism was spread out into a beautiful band of color. Born and Heisenberg 1 attributed these small differences to a polarization of the core by the valence electron see Fig. Though the spectroscopic analysis for these elements is very meager, this period very probably starts in just atoomic same way as the first and second long periods.


Microphotometer curves of both H 1 and H 2 are reproduced above and below each pattern. Enter your mobile number or email address below and we’ll send you a link to download the free Kindle App.

Tabu- late all values computed. This may be seen directly from the principal series as they are plotted in Fig. Exactly this same spreading out of the bj structure is observed in the alkali metals in going from lithium to caesium.

Epstein for reading Chap. This gives a constant for all m values. For example, in the first principal-series doublet of Fig. The building on of six 6p electrons in the next, six elements, thallium 81 Table 5. In these curves, O m. Comparison of the quantum-mechanical with the classical model of the neutral sodium atom.

A reproduc- tion of their diagram is given in Fig. Such an electron is called a 2p electron. Magnetic Moment and the Bohr Mag- neton. Helium and Helium-like Atoms.
