(1) emitted by the nucleus
(2) emitted by the electron
(3) absorbed by the nucleus
(4) absorbed by the electron
2 falling electrons emit energy

(1) +13      (3) +5
(2) +9        (4) +4
4 4 protons in the nucleus (atomic number)
4 Which sequence represents a correct order of historical developments leading to the modern model of the atom?
(1) the atom is a hard sphere =>most of the atom is empty space=> electrons exist in orbitals outside the nucleus
(2) the atom is a hard sphere => electrons exist in orbitals outside the nucleus => most of the atom is empty space
(3) most of the atom is empty space =>electrons exist in orbitals outside the nucleus => the atom is a hard sphere
(4) most of the atom is empty space=>the atom is a hard sphere => electrons exist in orbitals outside the nucleus

7 Which trends are observed when the elements in Period 3 on the Periodic Table are considered in order of increasing atomic number?
(1) The atomic radius decreases, and the first ionization energy generally increases.
(2) The atomic radius decreases, and the first ionization energy generally decreases.
(3) The atomic radius increases, and the first ionization energy generally increases.
