background image 3.1 Electromagnetic energy continued The speed of light c ¿ 2.9979 ×10 8 /s All electromagnetic radiation (light) travels at the same velocity (speed of  light) cv λ Wavelength goes up (gets longer) as frequency goes down, wavelength goes  down (gets shorter) as frequency goes up Speed of light is a constant and does NOT change no matter the wavelength  or frequency Example problem An FM radio station has a frequency of 89.7MHz. What is the wavelength?  (1MHz=s⁻¹) 1. First remember the  cv λ . We can use this as a conversion factor  and have  λ= c
2.9979× 10 8 ms 89.7 MHz 2. Now we need to convert MHz into s so we can cancel out the units × 10 6 s 1 MHz 3. Which gives us our answer 3.342 m 4. Now we need to look at significant figures. 89.7 has the least amount  of significant figures (3) 3.34 m

Particle nature of light The emission and absorption of light is not continuous Black body radiation- emission of light from hot objects, it must pass a certain threshold of energy (heating metal) Photoelectric effect- emission of electrons from metal surfaces on which lights shines, this is only radiated with light of a certain frequency (metal in a microwave) Emission spectra- emission of light from electronically excited gas atoms  (neon signs)
background image Adding energy to a pure element causes it to emit light Quantum theory Energy is not continuous, it can be released or absorbed in finite amounts  called photons E photon = hv h is Planck’s constant  6.626 ×10 34 Js Example problems Calculate the energy of a photon of blue light with a wavelength of 460nm
