Vocabulary for Chemistry

QuestionAnswer
Wavelength The Shortest distance between equivalent points on a continuous wave is usually expressed in meters centimeters or nanometers.
Frequency The number of waves that pass a given point per second.
Amplitude The waves height from the origin to a crest or from the origin to the trough.
electromagnectic Spectrum includes all forms of eletromagnetic radiation with the only differences in the types of radiation being their frequencies and waves.
Quantum is the minimum amount of energy that can be gained or lost by an atom
Photoeletric Effect electrons called pohotelectrons are emitted from a metals surface when light of a certain frequency shines on the surface
Photon is a particle of an eletromagnetic radiation with no mass that carries quantum of energy
Atomic Emission spectrum A set of frequencies of eletromagnetic waves given off by atoms of an element consists of a series of fine lines of indivual colors.
ground state the lowest allowable energy state of an atom
de Brogile equation Predicts all moving paticles have wave characteristics
Heisenberg uncertainty principle states that it is fundamentally impossible to know perciesly both the velocity and position of ap article at the same time.
Quantum Mechnical model of the atom The atomic model in which eletrons are treated as waves
Princpl
