Atomic Theory Test Questions

According to Rutherford, the entire mass of an atom was concentrated in a tiny positively charged nucleus and around which the extranuclear electrons moving in constant motion.

But a moving charged particle emits radiation with the loss of kinetic energy and eventually hit the nucleus.

Thus to resolve the anomalous position Bohrs model was proposed which based on several novel postulates.

Quantum Numbers

To study the size shape and orientation of an orbital, we need to know about the four quantum numbers.

  1. Principal quantum number
  2. Azimuthal quantum number
  3. Magnetic quantum number
  4. Spin quantum number

The principal quantum number coming from Bohr’s model of an atom and it has integral values from 1 to ∞

But the azimuthal quantum number denoted by l.

l = 0, 1, 2, 3, …….. (n -1)

And the magnetic quantum number denoted by ml and ml has values from +l to -l.
