Problem 30E

Quantized Energy and Photons (Section)

A stellar object is emitting radiation at 3.55 mm.

(a) What type of electromagnetic spectrum is this radiation?

(b) If a detector is capturing 3.2 × 108 photons per second at this wavelength, what is the total energy of the photons detected in 1.0 hour?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

General Chemistry: Chapter 1 Reading Notes By Madelyne Crawford, August 25 The following notes were acquired from Chemistry: A Molecular Approach Textbook by Nivaldo J Tro. The reading was to be completed by Monday, August 29. Overview/Review of Chapter 1  The main goal of chemistry is to analyze and study the behavior of matter by understanding the behavior of atoms and molecules  The scientific approach to knowledge is based on observation and experiments  Qualitative vs. quantitative: o Qualitative describes how a process happens o Quantitative measures something about the process  A hypothesis is an interpretation of observations that explains scientific findings  The difference between a law and a theory is that laws describe what nature does and theories explain why nature behaves in certain ways  *Good hypotheses are ALWAYS falsifiable (meaning they can be confirmed or refuted in the future)  Antoine Lavoisier- father of the Law of Conservation of Mass, which he used to summarize observations of his combustion experiments o “In a chemical reaction, matter is neither created nor destroyed.”  John Dalton- father of the atomic theory o “matter is composed of small, indestructible particles”  Scientific theories are some of the strongest pieces of scientific knowledge- they are descriptions of why nature does what it does and have been proven over and over again for centuries
