QuestionAnswer
electromagnetic radiation a form of energy exhibiting wavelike behavior as it travels through space
wavelength the shortest distance between equivelent points of a constant wave.
frequency the number of waves that pass through a given point per second
amplitude the height of a wave from origin to trough or crest
electromagnetic spectrum all forms of electromagnetic radiation, with the only differences in the type of radiation being their frequency and wavelengths.
quantum the minimum amount of energy that can be gained or lostby an atom
Planck's Constant the symbol for joules the SI unit of energy
Photoelectric effect surface when light of a certain frequency shines on the surface
Photon a particle of electromagnetic radiation with no mass that carries a quantum wave of energy
Atomic emission spectrum the set of frequencies of the electromagnetic waves emitted by ato,s of the element
ground state lowest alloweable energy state of an atom
the Brogile equation predicts that all moving particles have wave characteristics
Heisenburg uncertainty Principle
Quantum mechanical model of an atom f
Atomic orbotal
principle quantum number
principle energy level the major energy level of an atom
