Chapter 7 Atomic Structure and Periodicity 7.1-7.2 7.3-7.4 7.5-7.8 7.9-7.11 7.13 Properties of Light Electromagnetic radiation- the way energy travels through space. This energy travels at the speed of light. Waves Three characteristics: 1.Wavelength 2.Frequency 3. Speed Wavelength =distance between two peaks (in meters) Frequency = number of waves per second (cycles per second) Speed= travels at speed of light (meters per second) continued Inverse relationship b/t. frequency and wavelength. Examples: 7.2 Nature of Matter Planck discovered: Energy is gained or lost in whole number quantities of hv Planck’s constant h = 6.626 x 10-34 J.s So Planck determined that energy is quantized (measured) in small packets called hv. Energy of a Photon Change in energy can be calculated by: Delta E = nhv n = intergers (1,2,3…) h = 6.626x10-34 J.s (Planck’s constant) v = frequency of EM radiation absorbed or emitted. A Photon Einstein viewed electromagnetic radiation as travelling in a stream of particles called “photons” E photon = hv= hc/lamda To summarize…. Energy is quantized. It occurs in units called quanta. Electromagnetic radiation exhibits wavelike properties and particulate properties also. deBroglie equation EM radiation shows wavelike and particulate properties. Electrons exhibit particulate and wavelike properties. m = h/lamdav or lamda = h/mv Examples: 7.3 Atomic Spectrum of Hydrogen Excited hydrogen atoms emit light! Hydrogen bonds are broken and H atoms release energy…. Excess energy is released by emitting light of different wavelengths. Figure 7.7 A Change Between Two Discrete Energy Levels Emits a Photon of Light Figure 7.8 Electronic Transitions in the Bohr Model for the Hydrogen Atom Line Spectrum vs. Continuous Bohr proposed that an electron orbits the nucleus in a rigidly defined energy level. Energy Atom = E photon = E e-final- E e-initial Continuous Spectrum White light is a contiuous spectrum. The Hydrogen Emission Spectrum is a LINE spectrum Atoms in excited states exhibit line spectrum not continous spectrum. Bohr model cont’d E = -2.178 x 10-18(Z2/n2) Z= nuclear charge n = the size of the radius (the larger the value of n, the larger the orbit radius) (-) sign means: energy of the electron bound to the nucleus is lower than if electron were at infinity. At infinite distance, no interaction occurs and the energy is zero. Examples… 7.5 Quantum Mechanical Model
