Wavelength The shortest between equivelent points on a continous wave.
How is wavelength measured? From crest to crest. From trough to trough.
Frequency The number of waves that pass a given point per second.
One hertz The SI unit of frequency.
Amplitude The waves height from the origin to a crest or from the orgin to the trough.
The speed of all electromagnetic wave is.. The same
As one quantity increases the other... Decrease
Sunlight is an example of Whitelight
Encompasses all forms of electromagnetic radiation with the only differences in the types of radiation being their frequencies and wavelengths Electromagnetic spectrum
Matter can gain or lose energy only in small specific amount called Quanta
Quantum The minimum amount od energy that can be gained or lost by an atom
Photoelectric effect Electrons called photoelectrons are emitted from a metals surface when light of a certain frequency shines on the surface
Photon A particle of electromagnetic radiation with no mass that carries a quantum of energy
Atomic emission spectrum The set of frequencies of the electromagnetic waves emitted by atoms of the element
