Question: 1
What will be the nature of charge on an atom when it loses an electron or when it gains an electron?
Answer: 1
When it lose an electron it became positive an when it gain and electron it became negative
Question: 2
Do you know any element having no neutrons in its atom.
Answer: 2
Isotope of hydrogen, protium have one proton and no neutrons in it.
Question: 3
From which word atom derived?
Answer: 3
Atom is derived from the Latin word"Atomos' meaning indivisible
Question: 4
What is quantum?
Answer: 4
Quantum means fixed energy. It is the smallest amount of energy that can be emitted or absorbed as electromagnetic radiation.
Question: 5
When do electrons emit or absorb energy?
Answer: 5
As long as electron remains in a particular orbit it does not radiate or absorb energy. The energy is emitted or absorbed only when an electron jumps from one orbit to another.
Question: 6
What was teh thickness of gold foil used in ruther ford's atomic model?
Answer: 6
0.00004 cm thick gold foil was used by Rutherford in his experiment
Question: 7
What are defects of Rutherford's atomic model?
Answer: 7
Following are the defect of Rutherford's atomic model. According to classical theory, electrons being charged particles should release or emit energy continuously and they should ultimately fall into nucleus. If electrons emit energy continuously, they should form a continuous spectrum but iin fact, Line spectrum was observed.
Question: 8
What is the nature of charge on cathode rays?
Answer: 8
Their deflection in electric and magnetic field proves that they have negative charge.

Answer: 9
The radioactive isotopes are used as tracers in medicine to diagnose the present of a tumor in human body. Isotope of 1-131 is used for diagnosis of goiter in thyroid gland.
Question: 10
Define atome according to Dalton?
Answer: 10
Atom is an indivisible, hard, dense and sphere.
Question: 11
How was the shown that atomic muclei are positively charged?
Answer: 11
The deflection of a few particles proved that there is a center of positive charge in an atom which is called nucleus of an atom.
Question: 12
Name the particles which determine the mass of an atom?
Answer: 12
Protons and neutrons determine the mass of an atom.
Question: 13
What is the capacity of shells?
Answer: 13
The number of electrons accommodated by the shell called capacity of shell.
Question: 14
Who discovered electron, proton and neutron
Answer: 14
In 1886, Goldstein discovered positively chrged particles called protons. In 1897, J.J. Thomson found in an atom, the negatively charged particles known as electrons. In 1932 James Chadwick discovered neutron.
Question: 15
Define Isotope?
Answer: 15
"Isotopes are defined as the atoms of elements that have same atomic number but different mass number.
Question: 16
What is meant by Quantum?
Answer: 16
Quantum means fixed energy. It is the smallest amount of energy that can be emitted or absorbed as electromagnetic radiation, Quanta are plural of quantum
Question: 17
How is the goiter is thyroid gland detected?
Answer: 17
Iodine-131 is used for the diagnosis of foiter in thyroid gland.
Question: 18
How does electron differ from a neutron?
Answer: 18
1- Electron is the negative charged particle.
2- Electron revolves around the nucleus.
3- Mass of electron is 5.486 x 10-4amu
Question: 19
Define nuclear fission reaction?
Answer: 19
A reation in which heavy nuclear splits up into two nuclei by absorbing show moving next ions.
Question: 20
Define nuclear fission reaction
Answer: 20
Nuclear fission reaction
Nuclear fission is the type of nuclear reaction in which a radioactive element (23592U) is bombarded with slow moving neutrons thatisotopeof element emits three neutrons and split into some other isotopic elements.
23592 U + 10n _________>13956Ba +9436 Kr +310n +energy
Question: 21
What is Dalton's atomic theory?
Answer: 21
According to Dalton. 1. An atom is an indivisible, hard and ense sphere 2. Atoms of same element are alike. 3. Atom combine in different ways to form compounds.
Question: 22
How many sub shells are there in second shells?
Answer: 22
Two shells s and p are present in second shell I.
Question: 23
What are shells?
Answer: 23
Shells are specific energy levels around nucleus in which electrons revolve. e.g. K, L, M, N.
