View Resource Atomic Orbitals

The Atomic Orbitals website is a distribution point for the orbital image generating program "Orbital Viewer" as well as the home of a collection of images generated with the program. Atomic and molecular orbitals are constructed. For atoms, the hydrogenic solution, up to n=30, is generated and for molecules the linear combination of atomic orbitals method is used.

View Resource Electrons, Ions and Plasmas

This series of web pages provides information on a range of topics regarding charged particles. Starting with the properties of atomic electrons, this material describes the Edison and photoelectric effects, the interaction between charged particles and magnetic fields, and the creation of plasmas and positive ions. Other topics, including the history of research on charges, are covered in...

View Resource Circuitry Snacks

This is arguably the tastiest way to design and learn about electronic circuits: make circuitry snacks! Two of Evil Mad Scientist favorite things in the world are playing with electronics and playing with food, and so it is about time that someone finally got around to combining the two. We begin by gathering up appropriate snack-food building blocks and making food-based models of electronic...

View Resource Rutherford Scattering

How did Rutherford figure out the structure of the atomic nucleus without looking at it? Simulate the famous experiment in which he disproved the Plum Pudding model of the atom by observing alpha particles bouncing off atoms and determining that they must have a small core. This simulation of a Rutherford Scattering is from the Physics Education Technology website of University of Colorado....

View Resource How Many Protons, Neutrons, and Electrons Are in Common Elements?

This site, part of Exploring Earth Investigation by McDougal Littell and TERC, examines how many protons, neutrons, and electrons are in common elements. The investigations "were designed to build students' knowledge of Earth Science concepts?and to raise student awareness of Earth as a system of interconnected components and processes." Here, visitors can find lessons on common elements, e...
