2 The Wave Nature of the Light Atomic structure elucidated by interaction of matter with light.Light properties: characterized by wavelength, , and frequency,.Light = electromagnetic radiation, a wave of oscillating electric and magnetic influences called fields.John A. SchreifelsChemistry 211
3 Properties of LightFrequency and wavelength inversely proportional to each other.c = where c = the speed of light = 3.00x108 m/s; units = s1, = m
4 Practice Calculate the frequency of light with a wavelength of 500 nm. Calculate the frequency of light if the wavelength is 400 nm.
5 Quantized Energy and Photons Light = wave arriving as stream of particles called "photons".Each photon = quantum of energyPhotoelectric effect simulationJohn A. SchreifelsChemistry 211
6 Planck’s Equation where h (Planck's constant) = 6.63x1034J*s. An increase in the frequency = an increase in the energyAn increase in the wavelength gives an decrease in the energy of the photon.the energy of the electron is directly related to the energy of the photon.
7 Determine the energies of photons with PracticeDetermine the energies of photons withwavelengths of 650 nm, 700 nm andfrequencies 4.50x1014 s1, 6.50x1014 s1
