Unit 2: The structure of atoms


Students should:

  • recognise the three sub-atomic particles and their positions within the atom.
  • be able to calculate the number of sub-atomic particles given the mass and atomic numbers¨ appreciate the existance of isotopes and their everyday uses.
  • understand the relationship between the layout of the periodic table and the sub-atomic structure
  • recognise that the electronic configuration gives rise to chemical activity
  • recognise that the electronic structure determines the nature of the element
