Electromagnetic Radiation a form of energy that exibits wavelike behavior as it travels through space
Wavelength the shortest distance between equivilant points on a continuous wave
Frequency the number of waves that pass a given point per second
Amplitude the wave's height from the orgin to the crest, or from the orgin to a trough
Electromagnetic Spectrum encompasses all forms of electromatic radiation, with only differences in the types of radiation being their frequencies and wavelengths
Quantum the minimum amount of energy that can be lost or gained by an atom
Planck's Constant 6.626 x 10^-34 J x s
Photoelectric Effect frequency of light shines on a metals's surface.
Photon a particle of electromagnetic radiation with no mass that carries a quantum of energy
