The Wave Nature of Light Visible light is a type of electromagnetic radiation.
The reciprocal relationship of frequency and wavelength.
Differing amplitude (brightness, or intensity) of a wave.
Regions of the electromagnetic spectrum
Interconverting Wavelength and Frequency Calculate the frequency of each wavelength of electromagnetic radiation: a nm (wavelength of red light from helium–neon laser) b. 503 nm (wavelength of maximum solar radiation) c nm (a wavelength contained in medical X-rays) Problem 1. Problem 2. Calculate the wavelength of each frequency of electromagnetic radiation: a MHz (typical frequency for FM radio broadcasting) b kHz (typical frequency for AM radio broadcasting) (assume four significant figures) c MHz (common frequency used for cell phone communication)
The Quantum Theory of Energy Any object (including atoms) can emit or absorb only certain quantities of energy. Energy is quantized; it occurs in fixed quantities, rather than being continuous. Each fixed quantity of energy is called a quantum. An atom changes its energy state by emitting or absorbing one or more quanta of energy. E = nh where n can only be a whole number.
The Photoelectric Effect (1905)
hν = E k + Φ 1.The electrons were emitted immediately - no time lag! 2.Increasing the intensity of the light increased the number of photoelectrons, but not their maximum kinetic energy! 3.Red light will not cause the ejection of electrons, no matter what the intensity! 4.A weak violet light will eject only a few electrons, but their maximum kinetic energies are greater than those for intense light of longer wavelengths!
Calculate the energy of a photon of electromagnetic radiation at the following wavelengths: nm (wavelength of red light from helium–neon laser); 503 nm (wavelength of maximum solar radiation); nm (a wavelength contained in medical X-rays). Problem 3. A laser pulse with wavelength 532 nm contains 3.85 mJ of energy. How many photons are in the laser pulse? Problem 4.

The Bohr Model of the Hydrogen Atom (1913) Bohr’s atomic model postulated the following: The H atom has only certain energy levels, which Bohr called stationary states. –Each state is associated with a fixed circular orbit of the electron around the nucleus. –The higher the energy level, the farther the orbit is from the nucleus. –When the H electron is in the first orbit, the atom is in its lowest energy state, called the ground state. The atom does not radiate energy while in one of its stationary states. The atom changes to another stationary state only by absorbing or emitting a photon. –The energy of the photon (h ) equals the difference between the energies of the two energy states. –When the E electron is in any orbit higher than n = 1, the atom is in an excited state.

A hydrogen atom absorbs a photon of UV light and its electron enters the n = 4 energy level. Calculate: a)the change in energy of the atom and b)the wavelength (in nm) of the photon. Problem 7. Problem 8. Calculate the wavelength of the light emitted or absorbed when an electron in a hydrogen atom makes each transition and indicate the region of the electromagnetic spectrum (infrared, visible, ultraviolet, etc.) where the light is found. a)n = 2 → n = 1 b)n = 4 → n = 2 c)n = 4 → n = 3 d)n = 5→ n = 6

The Wave-Particle Duality of Matter and Energy
All matter exhibits properties of both particles and waves. Electrons have wave-like motion and therefore have only certain allowable frequencies and energies. h m u = m = mass u = speed in m/s Louis de Broglie
Problem 9. A proton in a linear accelerator has a de Broglie wavelength of 122 pm. What is the speed of the proton? The smallest atoms can themselves exhibit quantum mechanical behavior. Calculate the de Broglie wavelength (in pm) of a hydrogen atom traveling 475 m/s. Problem 10.
Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle The paradox solver Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle states that it is not possible to know both the position and momentum of a moving particle at the same time. The more accurately we know the speed, the less accurately we know the position, and vice versa. x ∙m u ≥ h 44 x = position u = speed
a)An electron moving near an atomic nucleus has a speed 6x10 6 m/s ± 1%. What is the uncertainty in its position ( x )? b)How accurately can an umpire know the position of a baseball (mass = kg) moving at mi/h ± 1.00% (44.7 m/s ± 1.00%)? Problem 11.
The Quantum-Mechanical Model of the Atom Newton’s laws are deterministic Quantum mechanics laws are indeterministic
The Quantum-Mechanical Model of the Atom The Schrödinger wave equation allows us to solve for the energy states associated with a particular atomic orbital. The square of the wave function gives the probability density, a measure of the probability of finding an electron of a particular energy in a particular region of the atom.

Quantum Numbers and Atomic Orbitals An atomic orbital is specified by three quantum numbers. The principal quantum number (n) is a positive integer. The value of n indicates the relative size of the orbital and therefore its relative distance from the nucleus. The magnetic quantum number (m l ) is an integer with 2 x l +1 values, from – l to + l. The value of m l indicates the spatial orientation of the orbital. The angular momentum quantum number ( l ) is an integer from 0 to (n -1). The value of l indicates the shape of the orbital.
The magnetic quantum number (m l ) is an integer with 2 x l +1 values, from – l to + l. The value of m l indicates the spatial orientation of the orbital. The angular momentum quantum number ( l ) is an integer from 0 to (n -1). The value of l indicates the shape of the orbital. L = r x p
The Hierarchy of Quantum Numbers for Atomic Orbitals
Energy shells (levels) and subshells (sublevels) Energetic levels (shells) Energetic sublevel (subshells) Orbitals Main Quantum Number (n) - SHELLS Secondary Quantum Number (l) – SUBSHELLS (l = 0 s subshell; l = 1 p subshell; l = 2 d subshell; l = 3 f subshell) Magnetic Quantum Number (m) – ORBITALS (m = 0 s orbital; m = -1,0,1 p orbitals; m = -2,-1,0,1,2 d orbitals, m = -3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3 f orbitals)
