Electrons in atoms

Electromagnetic radiation is a form of energy that exhibits wavelike behavior as it travels through space.
Wavelength is the shortest distance between quaivalent points on a continuous wave.
Frequency is the number of waves that pass a given point per second.
Electromagnetic spectrum encompasses all forms of electromagneticc radiation.
Quantum is the minimum amount of energy that can be gained or lost by an atom.
Planck's constant where J is the symbol for the joule, the SI unit of energy.
Photoelectric effect electrons, called photoelectrons, are emitted from a metal's surface when light of a certain frequency shines on the surface.
Photon a particle of electromagnetic radiation with no mass that carries quantum energy.
Atomic emission spectrum is the set of frequencies of the electromagnetic wavews emitted by atoms of the element.
Ground state lowest allowable energy state of a an atom.
