Key takeaways
Be able to describe how the atomic model has changed over time including reference to the Bohr model.
Be able to explain that electrons change orbit when there is absorption or emission of electromagnetic radiation.
Be able to describe how ionisation occurs.

Electrons, orbits and ionisation can be a tricky topic to get your head around. In this class, students will cover the development of the Bohr model of the atom, including why electrons are now considered to exist in discrete energy levels away from the nucleus. By the end of this lesson, students will be able to describe how ionisation occurs as well. This class is great for students in Years 10 and 11 who want to cement their knowledge on the concept.
