    The energy of an electron in a one electron atom equals (-2.18 x 10-18 J)(Z2/n2) , where Z is the nuclear charge and n is the principal quantum number of the electron. This is not actually correct because it ignores shielding effects. Assuming that an alkali metal can be viewed this way and referring to the outermost electron, calculate the ionization potential in J. of Lithium Report as a positive number. Answer example: 3.451e-18
  • 21. 
    Arrange the following atoms in order of increasing distance of then = 3 shell from the nucleus: Se Ar Ca Sr Rb . Answer example: Na K Ti V U (leave spaces after symbols, except the last symbol)
  • 22. 
    Magnesium metal can burn in ammonia gas to form hydrogen and magnesium nitride. What mass of H2 gas is formed in the reaction between 2.77 g. of magnesium and 4.23 g. of ammonia? Answer example: 3.451
  • 23. 
    The atoms and ions Li B2+ Be1+ C3+ all have the same number of electrons. For which of these isoelectronic species will the effective nuclear charge acting on the outermost electron besmallest? Answer example: Na or Mg+ ( Do not use superscripts for charges)
  • 24. 
    Write a balanced equation for the reaction that occurs when calcium reacts with nitrogen Answer example: 2Al+3N2->2AlN3 (use no spaces)
