Sections 5.1 and 5.2

is aform of energy that exhibits wavelike behavior as it travels hrough space. electromagneti radiation
is the shortest distance between equivalent points on a contiuous wave. wavelenght
is the nuumber of waves that pass a given point per second. frequency
is the wave's height from the orivin to a crest, or from the origin to a trough. amplitude
called the EM spectrum, encomppasses all forms of electromagnetic radiation, with the only differences in the types of radiatoin being their frequencies and wavelenghts. electromagnetic spectrum
is the minimum amount of energy that can be gained or lost by an atom quantum
where J is the symbol for the joule, the SI unit of energy. Planck's constant
called photoelectons, are emitted form a meta's surace when light of a certain frequency shines on the surface. photoelectric effect
is a particle of electromanetic radiaton with no mass that carries quantum o0f energy. photon
of an element is 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
predicts that all moving particles have wave characteristics. de Broglie equation
statres that it is fundamentally impossible to know precisely both the velocity and position of a particle at the same time. Heisenberg uncertainty principle
the otomic model in which electrons are treated as waves is called the wave mechnical model of the atom or more comonly the..... quantum mechanical model of the arom
A three-dimentional region around the nucleus. atomic orbital
indicate tyhe relative sizes and energies of atomic orbitals. principal quantum number
Atoms major energy levels pricipal energy level
Principal energy levels contain this strand of energy. energy sublevel
