Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. 2.1 Information from the Skies Electromagnetic radiation: Transmission of energy through space without physical connection through varying electric and magnetic fields Example: Light

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. 2.1 Information from the Skies Wave motion: Transmission of energy without the physical transport of material

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. 2.1 Information from the Skies Example: Water wave Water just moves up and down. Wave travels and can transmit energy.

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. 2.1 Information from the Skies Frequency: Number of wave crests that pass a given point per second units of Hertz (Hz) Period: Time between passage of successive crests Relationship: Period = 1 / Frequency Wave with frequency of 1000 Hz Period = 1/1000 Hz 0.001 s or 1 ms

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. 2.1 Information from the Skies Wavelength: Distance between successive crests Velocity: Speed at which crests move Relationship: Velocity = Wavelength / Period 1 m/s = 1 m / 1 s 3x10 8 m/s = 660 nm / 2.2 x10 -15 s

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. What is the Frequency? 3x10 8 m/s = 660 nm / 2.2 x10 -15 s Period = 1 / Frequency Frequency = 1 / period 1 / 2.2x10 -15 s = 4.54x10 14 Hz

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. 2.2 Waves in What? Diffraction: The bending of a wave around an obstacle Interference: The sum of two waves; may be larger or smaller than the original waves

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. 2.2 Waves in What? Water waves, sound waves, and so on, travel in a medium (water, air, …). Electromagnetic waves need no medium. Created by accelerating charged particles

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. 2.2 Waves in What? Magnetic and electric fields are inextricably intertwined. A magnetic field, such as the Earth’s shown here, exerts a force on a moving charged particle.

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. 2.2 Waves in What? Electromagnetic waves: Oscillating electric and magnetic fields; changing electric field creates magnetic field, and vice versa

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. 2.3 The Electromagnetic Spectrum The visible spectrum is only a small part of the total electromagnetic spectrum. Different colors of light are distinguished by their frequency and wavelength.

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. 2.3 The Electromagnetic Spectrum Different parts of the full electromagnetic spectrum have different names, but there is no limit on possible wavelengths.

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. 2.3 The Electromagnetic Spectrum The atmosphere is only transparent at a few wavelengths – the visible, the near infrared, and the part of the radio spectrum with frequencies higher than the AM band. This means that our atmosphere is absorbing a lot of the electromagnetic radiation impinging on it, and also that astronomy at other wavelengths must be done above the atmosphere.

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. a) radius. b) mass. c) magnetic field. d) temperature. e) direction of motion. The frequency at which a star’s intensity is greatest depends directly on its Question 3

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. a) radius. b) mass. c) magnetic field. d) temperature. e) direction of motion. The frequency at which a star’s intensity is greatest depends directly on its Question 3 Wien’s Law means that hotter stars produce much more high- frequency light.

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. The Kelvin Temperature Scale Kelvin temperature scale: All thermal motion ceases at 0 K. Water freezes at 273 K and boils at 373 K.

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. 2.4 Thermal Radiation Radiation laws: 1.Peak wavelength is inversely proportional to temperature. The higher the temperature the shorter the wavelength

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Spectroscopy Spectroscope: Splits light into component colors

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Spectroscopy Emission lines: Single frequencies emitted by particular atoms

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Emission spectrum can be used to identify elements. Spectroscopy

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Absorption spectrum: If a continuous spectrum passes through a cool gas, atoms of the gas will absorb the same frequencies they emit. Spectroscopy

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Spectroscopy Absorption spectrum of the Sun

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Kirchhoff’s laws: Luminous solid, liquid, or dense gas produces continuous spectrum. Low-density hot gas produces emission spectrum. Continuous spectrum incident on cool, thin gas produces absorption spectrum. Spectroscopy

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Existence of spectral lines required new model of atom, so that only certain amounts of energy could be emitted or absorbed. Bohr model had certain allowed orbits for electron. The Formation of Spectral Lines

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Emission energies correspond to energy differences between allowed levels. Modern model has electron “cloud” rather than orbit. The Formation of Spectral Lines

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Question 1 The wavelengths of emission lines produced by an element a) depend on its temperature. b) are identical to its absorption lines. c) depend on its density. d) are different than its absorption lines. e) depend on its intensity.

If a light source is approaching you, you will observe Question 3 The Doppler Shift explains that wavelengths from sources approaching us are blueshifted.

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. The Doppler Effect If one is moving toward a source of radiation, the wavelengths seem shorter; if moving away, they seem longer. Relationship between frequency and speed:

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Depends only on the relative motion of source and observer The Doppler Effect

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. The Doppler Effect The Doppler effect shifts an object’s entire spectrum either toward the red or toward the blue.

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Summary of Chapter 2 Wave: period, wavelength, amplitude Electromagnetic waves created by accelerating charges Visible spectrum is different wavelengths of light. Entire electromagnetic spectrum: includes radio waves, infrared, visible light, ultraviolet, X-rays, gamma rays can tell the temperature of an object by measuring its blackbody radiation

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Summary of Chapter 2, cont. Spectroscope splits light beam into component frequencies. Continuous spectrum is emitted by solid, liquid, and dense gas. Hot gas has characteristic emission spectrum. Continuous spectrum incident on cool, thin gas gives characteristic absorption spectrum.

Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Summary of Chapter 2, cont. Spectra can be explained using atomic models, with electrons occupying specific orbitals. Emission and absorption lines result from transitions between orbitals. Doppler effect can change perceived frequency of radiation. Doppler effect depends on relative speed of source and observer.
