Chemistry 1-30-12 Electron Configuration Notation

CHEMISTRY: Just when you were getting the hang of drawing arrows, I go and change it! But don’t you think writing electron configuration notation is a whole lot shorter than doing orbital notation? Don’t get me wrong, knowing how to do orbital is great for seeing how the electrons are paired, but this way is waaaay shorter! Here’s the lecture from Monday.

Chemistry 1-27-12 Orbital Notation

CHEMISTRY: Great work with orbital notation today! Are you starting to see arrows everywhere? Be sure and practice. Things to know: how many types for each orbital and the Aufbau chart! And be sure to practice, practice, practice! Let’s take it a step further tomorrow

Hon Chemistry 1-17-12 Electron Configuration Notation

HON CHEMISTRY: How are you doing with electron configuration notation? Do you like it better than orbital notation – a lot shorter, huh? Practice tonight, and let’s look at an even shorter way tomorrow. No peeking! Make sure you do electron configuration the regular way tonight, not using n—e g-s c———–n! 🙂

Hon Chemistry 1-13-12 Quantum Numbers & Orbital Notation

HON CHEMISTRY: Happy Friday the 13th! Is it making more sense now – all the quantum numbers, I mean? Did your brain get too full today, too? 🙂 I think you’ll get the hang of orbital notation very quickly. Don’t forget to use the Aufbau Principle! Also, be sure to add number 31 to the homework for Friday night. Have a great extra long weekend!
