Electrons: Where they Live and How they Act

Unit 3: The Atom
Lesson 4 of 7

Objective: Students will be able to state the electron configuration for the first twenty elements on the periodic table, and they will be able to use the speed of light formula to calculate frequency when wavelength is known.

Big Idea: Electron configuration describes where electrons are located. The speed of light formula helps explain what happens when electrons go from the ground state to the excited state.
