Elemental Yearbook: Biographcal Worksheet

    The Elemental yearbook: Biographical Worksheet was the first task I had to accomplish before I could start modeling an atom of Indium. This was the research on the atom, to further our knowledge and to have a greater understanding. We were required to know several things including the orbital filling diagram, electron configuration and the number of protons, neutrons and electrons in the atom’s nucleus. Indiums atomic mass is 49.

For this worksheet I used a mixture of Chemistry skills and English skills
Chemistry Skills

·         Distinguish among principal energy level, energy sublevel, and atomic orbital

·         Apply the Aufbau principle, the Pauli exclusion principle, and Hund's rule to write the           electron configurations of the elements


    In order to finish the elemental yearbook: biographical worksheet I had to use an Aufbau chart to write the orbital filling diagram. Then when modeling the atom I had to be able to tell the difference between each energy level by making the corresponding energy levels the same color. Also, I had to be able to tell the difference between each energy sublevel by making sure each sublevel had the correct number of electrons in them
