Electromagnetic Radiation Form of energy that exhibits wave like behavior at it travels through space.
Wavelength Shortest distance between two points on a continous wave.
Frenquency Number of waves that pass a point in a given second.
Amplitude The waves height from the origin to the crest.
Electromagnetic Spectrum Encompasses all forms of electomagentic radiation.
Quantum Minimum amount of energy that can be gained or lost by an atom.
Planks Constant Value of 6.626x10(-34)j.s.
Photoelectric Effect Electrons called photoelectrons are entitled from a metal surface when light of a certain frequency shines on the surface.
Photon A partical of electromagnetic radiation with no mass that carries a quantom of energy.
Atomic Emission Spectron The set of frequencies of the electromagnetic waves entitled by atoms of the element.
Ground State the lowest allowable energy state of an atom.
de broglie equation predicts that all moving particles have a wave characteristics and relates each particle's wavelentgh to its frenquency, its mass, and Planck's constant.
heisenberg uncertainity principle to know the velocity and position of a partical
quantom mechanical model of the atom the atomic model on which electrons are treated as waves
atomic orbital describes the electrons probable location
principle quantum numbers indicate the relative sizes and energies of atomic orbital
principle energy levels the atoms major energy levels
energy sublevels are in priciple energy levels
