  • Describing light
    • wavelength
    • frequency
    • energy
  • ground state
  • excited state
  • Electron "address"
    • energy level
    • orbitals
    • subset of orbitals
  • electron configuration
    • condensed electron configuration
    • orbital notation
  • valence electrons
  • inner core electrons
  • Periodic trends
    • effective nuclear charge
    • atomic size (radius)
      • atoms
      • ions, isoelectronic
    • ionization energy
    • successive ionization energy
  • "electronic nirvana" (preferred or naturally occurring ion state)
  • losing and gaining electrons

Remember that in this cumulative course, all "old" vocabulary is always fair game.
