**Light and Atomic Emission Spectra**

The Nature of Light By the year 1900, there was enough experimental evidence to convince scientists that light consisted of waves (a disturbance or variation that transfers energy progressively from point to point, Merriam-Webster’s dictionary). The amplitude of a wave is the wave’s height from zero to the crest. The wavelength, represented by (the Greek letter lambda), is the distance between the crests.

24
**The Quantum Concept and Photons**

The Quantization of Energy German physicist Max Planck (1858–1947) showed mathematically that the amount of radiant energy (E) of a single quantum absorbed or emitted by a body is proportional to the frequency of radiation (n).

25
**The Quantum Concept and Photons**

The Quantization of Energy The constant (h), which has a value of 10–34 J·s (J is the joule, the SI unit of energy), is called Planck’s constant. E n or E = hn Copyright © Pearson Education, Inc., or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.

26
**The Quantum Concept and Photons**

The Photoelectric Effect Albert Einstein used Planck’s quantum theory to explain the photoelectric effect. In the photoelectric effect, electrons are ejected when light shines on a metal. Copyright © Pearson Education, Inc., or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.

27
**The Quantum Concept and Photons**

The Photoelectric Effect Not just any frequency of light will cause the photoelectric effect. Red light will not cause potassium to eject electrons, no matter how intense the light. Yet a very weak yellow light shining on potassium begins the effect. Copyright © Pearson Education, Inc., or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.

28
**The Quantum Concept and Photons**

The Photoelectric Effect The photoelectric effect could not be explained by classical physics. Classical physics correctly described light as a form of energy. But, it assumed that under weak light of any wavelength, an electron in a metal should eventually collect enough energy to be ejected. Copyright © Pearson Education, Inc., or its affiliates.

29
**The Quantum Concept and Photons**

The Photoelectric Effect To explain the photoelectric effect, Einstein proposed that light could be described as quanta of energy that behave as if they were particles. Copyright © Pearson Education, Inc., or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.

30
**The Quantum Concept and Photons**

The Photoelectric Effect These light quanta are called photons. Einstein’s theory that light behaves as a stream of particles explains the photoelectric effect and many other observations. Light behaves as waves in other situations; we must consider that light possesses both wave-like and particle-like properties. Copyright © Pearson Education, Inc., or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.

31
**The Quantum Concept and Photons**

The Photoelectric Effect No electrons are ejected because the frequency of the light is below the threshold frequency. If the light is at or above the threshold frequency, electrons are ejected. If the frequency is increased, the ejected electrons will travel faster. Copyright © Pearson Education, Inc., or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.

**An Explanation of Atomic Spectra**

When an electron has its lowest possible energy, the atom is in its ground state. In the ground state, the principal quantum number (n) is 1. Excitation of the electron by absorbing energy raises the atom to an excited state with n = 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6, and so forth. A quantum of energy in the form of light is emitted when the electron drops back to a lower energy level. Copyright © Pearson Education, Inc., or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.

CHEMISTRY & YOU The glass tubes in lighted signs contain helium, neon, argon, krypton, or xenon gas, or a mixture of these gases. Why do the colors of the light depend on the gases that are used? Each different gas has its own characteristic emission spectrum, creating different colors of light when excited electrons return to the ground state.

Quantum Mechanics Given that light behaves as waves and particles, can particles of matter behave as waves? Louis de Broglie referred to the wavelike behavior of particles as matter waves.

**The Wavelike Nature of Matter**

Quantum Mechanics The Wavelike Nature of Matter Today, the wavelike properties of beams of electrons are useful in viewing objects that cannot be viewed with an optical microscope. The electrons in an electron microscope have much smaller wavelengths than visible light. These smaller wavelengths allow a much clearer enlarged image of a very small object, such as this pollen grain, than is possible with an ordinary microscope.

Quantum Mechanics Classical mechanics adequately describes the motions of bodies much larger than atoms, while quantum mechanics describes the motions of subatomic particles and atoms as waves. Copyright © Pearson Education, Inc., or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.

48
**The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle**

Quantum Mechanics The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle The Heisenberg uncertainty principle states that it is impossible to know both the velocity and the position of a particle at the same time. This limitation is critical when dealing with small particles such as electrons. But it does not matter for ordinary-sized objects such as cars or airplanes.

**To locate an electron, you might strike it with a photon. **

Quantum Mechanics To locate an electron, you might strike it with a photon. The electron has such a small mass that striking it with a photon affects its motion in a way that cannot be predicted accurately. The very act of measuring the position of the electron changes its velocity, making its velocity uncertain. After collision: The impact changes the electron’s velocity, making it uncertain. Before collision: A photon strikes an electron during an attempt to observe the electron’s position. Copyright © Pearson Education, Inc., or its affiliates. All Rights Reserved.
