It is conserved. Chapter 3 Page 1 Wave (a)  = 714 nm Wave (b)  = 503 nm Chapter 3 Page 2 Example 2: What is the wavelength of a purple light that has a 14 frequency of 6.88 x 10 Hz? Chapter 3 Page 3 September 13, 2016 Tuesday, September 13, 2014:35 PM Chapter 3 Page 4 Light is passed through a single slit and then through a double slit creating an interference pattern on a screen. Constructive interference results when waves are added in phase. Destructive interference results when waves are added out of phase. This experiment demonstrates the inseparability of the wave-like and particle-like nature of light. Particle-like Properties of EM Radiation: The Planck Equation E = h  -34 Planck’s constant, h = 6.626 x 10 J·s •Einstein observed metals reacting to different colors of light at a minimum frequency. •The energy of only one photon can be absorbed so only one electron can be ejected. •Electron is ejected from purple and green light but not from red light. Einstein’s photoelectric effect further supported the idea of quantized energy. Beam of light has wave-like properties but also behaves as if it were composed of small particles, photons, whose energy is related to their frequency, . Energy of photon depends on frequency not intensity! 1. What is the energy (in kJ) of a photon with a frequency, , of 4.35 x 10 s ?1 2. What is the energy (in kJ/mol) of a photon with a wavelength, , o 3.68 x 10 m? th Newton –17 Century – Sunlight is composed of various color components that can be recombined to produce white light. Emission Spectra : a gas phase sample is energized and passed through a prism. September 15, 2016 Thursday, September 3:59 PM6 • Each orbit is a different energy level. • Electrons in different orbits have different energies. • Electrons cannot exist between energy levels. • n=1 is the lowest energy level. • When an atom absorbs energy, an electron can jump from a lower energy level to a higher energy level. • Once the electron is excited, it will drop back down to a lower energy level. • This release energy in the form E = h . Calculate the wavelength (in nm) of the photon emitted when an electron transitions from the n = 5 state to the n = 2 state in a hydrogen atom. Chapter 3 Page 9 Wavelike Properties of Matter: The de Broglie Equation •de Broglie hypothesized: If light can have wave-like and particle-like behavior, then matter (already large enough to be a particle) should also behave like a wave.  = h mv Example: What is the wavelength (in meters) of an electron (mass = 9.11 x 10kg ) that has been accelerated to 50% of the speed of light? Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle - Impossible to know precisely where an electron is and what path it follows. Chapter 3 Page 10 Chapter 3 Page 11

Why people love StudySoup

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."

Amaris Trozzo George Washington University

"I made $350 in just two days after posting my first study guide."

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."
