Sample text

Thus, the diameter of a typical atom is about 2 ϫ 10؊10 m, or 200 picometers (pm), where 1 pm ϭ 10؊12 m. To give you an idea of how small this is, a thin pencil line is about 3 million carbon atoms wide. Many organic chemists and biochemists still use the unit angstrom (Å) to express atomic distances, where 1 Å ϭ 100 pm ϭ 10؊10 m, but we’ll stay with the SI unit picometer in this book. 3 A schematic view of an atom. The dense, positively charged nucleus contains most of the atom’s mass and is surrounded by negatively charged electrons.

3 A schematic view of an atom. The dense, positively charged nucleus contains most of the atom’s mass and is surrounded by negatively charged electrons. The three-dimensional view on the right shows calculated electron-density surfaces. Electron density increases steadily toward the nucleus and is 40 times greater at the blue solid surface than at the gray mesh surface. Nucleus (protons + neutrons) Volume around nucleus occupied by orbiting electrons A specific atom is described by its atomic number (Z), which gives the number of protons (and electrons) it contains, and its mass number (A), which gives the total number of protons plus neutrons in its nucleus.

10). Called the bond length, this distance is 74 pm in the H2 molecule. Every covalent bond has both a characteristic bond strength and bond length. 9 Relative energy levels of H atoms and the H2 molecule. The H2 molecule has 436 kJ/mol (104 kcal/mol) less energy than the two H atoms, so 436 kJ/mol of energy is released when the H–H bond forms. Conversely, 436 kJ/mol must be added to the H2 molecule to break the H–H bond. 10 A plot of energy versus internuclear distance for two hydrogen atoms. The distance between nuclei at the minimum energy point is the bond length.
