CHEM 151: Unit 2 I. Module 1: Analyzing Light-Matter Interactions a. Introduction i. Central goal: help you understand how to use experimental data on the light emitted or absorbed by chemical substances to derive information and build models about atomic and molecular structure. b. Spectroscopy i. Spectroscopy - based on the analysis of different types of EM radiation absorbed or emitted by chemical substances. ii. EM radiation – form of energy that can be generated by accelerating particles that have electrical charge. Takes form of self-propagating waves that travel through matter or through vacuum at a characteristic speed (v) that depends on the nature of the medium. iii. EM radiation is characterized by wavelength () or frequency (). 1. wavelength – measure of the distance over which the shape of the wave is repeated a.  is measured in meters 2. frequency – indicates the number of repeating waves that cross a certain point of space per unit time -1 a.  is measured in s or Hertz (Hz) iv. Let’s Think: How does  change with increasing ? x=v v. Equation: vi. Speed of propagation of EM waves through vacuum (not the same for material mediums like water or glass) is constant: v = c = 3.00 x 10 m/s. 1. Same value no matter what the wavelength or frequency of the radiation is. vii. Different EM radiation types span the electromagnetic spectrum 1. Includes: X-rays, UV radiation, infrared (IR) radiation, radio waves, and visible light (400nm-700nm) 2. As you move left, frequency INCREASES; as you move right, wavelength INCREASES. viii. Different chemical substances interact in distinctive manners with different types of radiation. 1. Type of EM radiation absorbed or emitted by chemical substance is a differentiating characteristic. ix. In spectroscopy techniques, instruments measure intensity of EM radiation that passes through a sample or is emitted by a substance when heated or stimulated in some other way (like using other types of EM radiation). 1. Detection done at different wavelengths so that a spectrum can be made. 2. Absorbance: fraction of EM radiation of a specific wavelength that was absorbed by substance

"I bought an awesome study guide, which helped me get an A in my Math 34B class this quarter!"

Steve Martinelli UC Los Angeles

"There's no way I would have passed my Organic Chemistry class this semester without the notes and study guides I got from StudySoup."

Parker Thompson 500 Startups

"It's a great way for students to improve their educational experience and it seemed like a product that everybody wants, so all the people participating are winning."
