About This Quiz & Worksheet

Several principles are used to explain how an atom is structured. To be successful on this quiz, you will need a solid understanding of Hund's Rule, the Aufbau Principle, and the Pauli Exclusion Principle.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

To demonstrate your knowledge on this subject, you will be quizzed on:

  • The principle that asserts that electrons fill orbitals with lower energy before moving on to higher energy orbitals
  • Which rule relates to the spin of electrons
  • What the series of numbers that describes electrons is called

Skills Practiced

  • Define key concepts - ensure that you can accurately identify and define the series of numbers that describe where an electron is located
  • Reading comprehension - ensure that you draw the most important information from the related lesson on atomic structure principles
  • Information recall - access the knowledge you've gained regarding what each principle purports
