Example text

5. When all the electrons occupy the lowest possible energies in accord with the foregoing restrictions, an atom is said to be in its ground state. However, electron transitions to higher energy states are possible, as discussed in Chapters 18 and 21. The electron configuration or structure of an atom represents the manner in which these states are occupied. In the conventional notation the number of electrons in each subshell is indicated by a superscript after the shell–subshell designation. For example, the electron configurations for hydrogen, helium, and sodium are, respectively, 1s1, 1s2, and 1s22s22p63s1.

Many of them are organic compounds that are chemically based on carbon, hydrogen, and other nonmetallic elements (viz. O, N, and Si). Furthermore, they have very large molecular structures, often chain-like in nature that have a backbone of carbon atoms. Some of the common and familiar polymers are polyethylene (PE), nylon, poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC), polycarbonate (PC), polystyrene (PS), and silicone rubber. 5). 8 Familiar objects that are made of metals and metal alloys: (from left to right) silverware (fork and knife), scissors, coins, a gear, a wedding ring, and a nut and bolt.
