2 - Atomic & Electronic Structure/ Periodic Table

The atom is central to the study of chemistry. The atom is the smallest unit of matter that retains all the chemical properties of an element. Understanding the atom and the elements that will be seen throughout the course will provide a foundation to build from to understand how these particles combine and react. To be discussed: atomic structure history, isotopic notation, quantum mechanics, electron configuration, emission spectroscopy, periodic table, and atomic trends.
