electromagnetic radiation form of energy that exhibits wavelike behaivor at it travles through space
wavelength shortest distance between two points on a contionus wave
frequency number of waves that pass a point in agiven second
amplitude the waves height from the orgin to the crest
electromagnetic spectrum emcompasses all forms of electromagnetic radiation
quantum minium ammount 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 emitted from a metals surface when light of a certian frequency shines on the surface
photon s partical of electromagnetic radition with no mass that carries a quantom of energy
atomic emission spectrom the set of frequencies of the electromagnetic waves emitted by atoms of the element
ground state the lowest allowable energy state of an atom
de broglie equation predictis that all moving particles have wave chs
heisenberg uncertianity principle states that it is fundimentally impossible to know the velocity and position of a partical
quantom mechanical model of the atom the atomic model in which electrons are treated as waves
atomic orbital describes the electrons probable location
principal quantom numbers indicate the relative sizes and energies of atomic orbitals
pricipal energy levels the atoms major energy levels
