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

Chemistry 1-26-12 Quantum Numbers

CHEMISTRY: How’re you doing? Confused yet? Don’t worry – today you learned all the background information about quantum numbers, tomorrow we’ll put it all together and it will begin to make sense. If you didn’t hear the lecture today, this is for sure one that you want to watch!

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!

Hon Chemistry 1-12-12 Intro to Quantum Mechanics

HON CHEMISTRY: Great job on quantum mechanics today! We’ll set it up with electrons tomorrow. Don’t worry, it’s supposed to be a little strange, you’ve never heard of this before, right? We’ll go slow again tomorrow and you’ll get it, I promise! 🙂
