What are the charges of the subatomic particles in an atom?

Protons have a positive charge, neutrons have no charge, and electrons have a negative charge.

What is the basic structure of an atom?

An atom consists of a nucleus, which contains protons and neutrons, surrounded by electrons in energy levels.

How does the number of protons determine the identity of an atom?

The number of protons in an atom's nucleus is unique to each element and determines its atomic number, which in turn determines the element's identity.

Explain the concept of electron configuration and how it relates to the arrangement of electrons in an atom.

Electron configuration refers to the arrangement of electrons in the energy levels or shells of an atom. It follows the order of filling the orbitals with the lowest energy first, following the Aufbau principle.

What are the different energy levels or shells in an atom, and how do electrons occupy these levels?

The different energy levels or shells in an atom are designated by the principal quantum number (n). Electrons occupy these levels according to the Aufbau principle, Pauli exclusion principle, and Hund's rule.

What is an atomic orbital, and how does it describe the probability of finding an electron in a specific region around the nucleus?

An atomic orbital is a mathematical function that describes the probability of finding an electron in a specific region around the nucleus. It provides information about the energy, shape, and orientation of the electron within an atom.

Test your knowledge on the basic structure of an atom and the charges of its subatomic particles. Learn how the number of protons determines the identity of an atom.
