Problem 55E

Ionization Energies; Electron Affinities (Sections)

Consider the first ionization energy of neon and the electron affinity of fluorine. (a) Write equations, including electron configurations, for each process. (b) These two quantities have opposite signs. Which will be positive, and which will be negative? (c) Would you expect the magnitudes of these two quantities to be equal? If not, which one would you expect to be larger?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Chapter 6: Electronic Structure of Atoms Monday, October 3, 2016 2:56 PM 6.1 The Wave Nature of Light Visible light is a only a small part of a broad spectrum of energy known as electromagnetic radiation. Electromagneticradiation, including visible light, travels through space at a velocity of 3.0 x 10 m/s (speed of light) All types of radiation has wavelike properties. The distance between corresponding points on adjacent waves is the wavelength ( )  The number of waves passing a given point per unit of time is the frequency (v). For waves traveling at the same velocity,the speed of light c is shorter than the wave length, the greater the frequency. (inverse relationship) C = V 3.0 x 10 = 700 nm (nm 10 m/nm) x v Shorter wavelengths/higher frequencies = higher e
