Problem 6.5

The familiar phenomenon of a rainbow results from the diffraction of sunlight through raindrops.

(a) Does the wavelength of light increase or decrease as we proceed outward from the innermost band of the rainbow?

(b) Does the frequency of light increase or decrease as we proceed outward? [Section 6.3]

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 5) Does the wavelength of light increase or decrease as we proceed outward from the innermost band of the rainbow Does the frequency of light increase or decrease as we proceed outward The electrons involved in chemical bonding are the valence electrons, which, for most atoms, are those in the outermost occupied shell. (Section 6.8) The American chemist G. N. Lewis (1875–1946) suggested a simple way of showing the valence electrons in an atom and tracking them during bond formation, using what are now known as either Lewis electron-dot symbols or simply Lewis symbols. The Lewis symbol for an element consists of the element’s chemical symbol plus a dot for each valence electron. Sulfur, for example, has the electron configuration 3Ne43s23p4 and therefore six valence electrons.
