Problem 6.13

What are the basic SI units for

(a) the wavelength of light,

(b) the frequency of light,

(c) the speed of light?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 5) Like oxygen, sulfur has a tendency to gain electrons from other elements to form sulfides, which contain the S2- ion. In fact, most sulfur in nature is present as metal sulfides. Sulfur is below oxygen in the periodic table, and the tendency of sulfur to form sulfide anions is not as great as that of oxygen to form oxide ions. As a result, the chemistry of sulfur is more complex than that of oxygen. In fact, sulfur and its compounds (including those in coal and petroleum) can be burned in oxygen. The main product is sulfur dioxide, a major air pollutant: Below sulfur in group 6A is selenium, Se. This relatively rare element is essential for life in trace quantities, although it is toxic at high doses. There are many allotropes of Se, including several eight-membered ring structures that resemble the S8 ring. The next element in the group is tellurium, Te. Its elemental structure is even more complex than that of Se, consisting of long, twisted chains of Te—Te bonds. Both Se and Te favor the -2 oxidation state, as do O and S. From O to S to Se to Te, the elements form larger and larger molecules and become increasingly metallic. The thermal stability of group 6A compounds with hydrogen decreases down the column: H2O 7 H2S 7 H2Se 7 H2Te, with H2O, water, being the most stable of the series.
