chemistry class

a form of energy that exhibits wavelike behavior as it travels through space Electromagnetic Radiation
the shortest distance btw equivalent points on a continuous wave Wavelength
a number of waves that pass a given point per second Frequency
the wave's height from the origin to the crest, or from the origin to the trough Amplitude
encompasses all forms of elecrtomagnetic radiation, with only a few differences in the types of radiation being their frenquencies and wavelengths Electromagnetic Spectrum
is the minimum amount of energy that can be gained or lost by an atom Quantum
has the value of 6.626X 10-34 J x s, J is the symbol for the joule, the SI unit of energy Planck's Constant
electrons, called photoelectrons, are emited from a metal's surface when light of a certain frequency shines on the surface phtoelectric effect
a particle of electromagneticradiation with no mass that carries a quantum of energy photon
the set of frequencies of the electromagnetic waves emitted by atoms of the element atomic emission spectrum
the lowest allowable energy state of an atom ground state
states taht it is fundamentally impossible to know precisely both the velocity and position of a particle at the same time Heisenberg uncertainty priciple
the atomic model in which electrons are treated as waves quantim mechanical model of the atom
a 3-d region around the nucleus atomic orbital
indicates the relative sizes and energizes of atomic orbitals principal quantum numbers
specifies the atom's major energy levels principal energy levels
levels of pricipal energy levels Energy sublevels
