All about electrons – starting with atomic structure

Some helpful or interesting links for 2.1 and 2.2


Simulation of Rutherford’s Gold experiment

All about the nucleus, Bohr, etc in 10 minutes of fast talking from Crashcourse, get past the general chem first


Website (text) with More than you perhaps want to know about the operation of a mass spectrometre, but interesting

… and then how to use the information from a mass spectrometre to calculate ram

Video (7 min) on mass spectrometry and how, why we use it

Topic 2.2

Models of the H atom sim How did scientists figure out the structure of atoms without looking at them? Try out different models by shooting light at the atom. Check how the prediction of the model matches the experimental results

More history of atomic discoveries/models through the ages

Video on Light and atomic structure  (also has a link to the video transcript, if you’d like to read along)

Document from my drive on Electromagnetic spectra (in detail)

5 min clip on atomic emission spectra (from Brightstorm series)

Do you wish you could see spectra at home? Clip of atomic spectra with home materials (optional)
