2 Isotope characteristics differ U U

3 Binding energy Energy released when a nucleus is formed from protons and neutrons. Mass is lost. E = mc 2 –where m is the lost mass

4 The photon A “particle” of light A “quantum” of light energy The energy of a given photon depends on the frequency (color) of the light

5 But light is also a wave! Travels at constant speed c in a vacuum. c = f –c: 3 x 10 8 m/s –  wavelength (m) – f: frequency (Hz)

6 Calculating photon energy E = hf –E: energy (J or eV) –h: Planck’s constant  J s or 4.14  eV s –f: frequency of light (s -1, Hz)

7 The “electron-volt” (eV) is an energy unit Useful on the atomic level. If a moving electron is stopped by 1 V of electric potential, we say it has 1 electron-volt (or 1 eV) of kinetic energy!

8 Converting eV to Joules (J) 1 eV =  J

9 Absorption Spectrum Photon is absorbed and excites atom to higher quantum energy state. 0 eV -10 eV hf Ground state EE

10 Absorption Spectrum Absorption spectra always involve atoms going up in energy level. 0 eV -10 eV ionized

11 Emission Spectrum Photon is emitted and atom drops to lower quantum energy state. 0 eV -10 eV hf Excited state EE

12 Emission Spectrum Emission spectra always involve atoms going down in energy level. 0 eV -10 eV ionized

13 Wavelength Photon –  = c/f Particle – = h/p – deBroglie wavelength

14 Compton Scattering Proof of the momentum of photons. High-energy photons collided with electrons. Conservation of momentum. Scattered photons examined to determine loss of momentum.

15 Davisson-Germer Experiement Verified that electrons have wave properties by proving that they diffract. Electron diffraction
