Ellena Bethea: A Modeler’s Approach to the Atom

The nine core units of the modeling chemistry curriculum focuses on creating, describing, refining, and using models of matter to explain and explore the majority of introductory chemistry topics. In this talk, Ellena Bethea discussed the modeling approach to the atom, and shared how she used emission and photoelectron spectroscopy to continue the storyline in an advanced course.

    The molecular modeling tool Molecular Workbench (http://mw.concord.org/modeler/) has some good simulations of light and radiation.

    I particularly like:

    (you must install the program to view the simulation)
