Homework Assignment #7 Name____________________________ Laboratory Section (circle one) MW1.30 MW6.30 TTh7 1. Chapter 7, Problem 2, 4, 10, 11, 12, 13, 20, 24, 28, 30, 40, 44, 48, 52, 56, 59, 60, 64 7.2 a) Figure 7.3 describes the electromagnetic spectrum by wavelength and frequency. Wavelength increases from left (10 –2 nm) to right (10 12 nm). The trend in increasing wavelength is: x-ray < ultraviolet < visible < infrared < microwave < radio waves . b) Frequency is inversely proportional to wavelength according to equation 7.1, so frequency has the opposite trend: radio < microwave < infrared < visible < ultraviolet < x-ray . c) Energy is directly proportional to frequency according to equation 7.2. Therefore, the trend in increasing energy matches the trend in increasing frequency: radio < microwave < infrared < visible < ultraviolet < x-ray . High- energy electromagnetic radiation disrupts cell function. It makes sense that you want to limit exposure to ultraviolet and x-ray radiation. 7.4 Evidence for the wave model is seen in the phenomena of diffraction and refraction. Evidence for the particle model includes the photoelectric effect and blackbody radiation. 7.10 E = hc/ λ = ( )( ) 34 8 12 6.626 x 10 J • s 3.00 x 10 m/s 0.01 Å 1.3 Å 10 m - - = 1.529 x 10 –15 = 1.5 x 10 –15 J 7.11 Since energy is directly proportional to frequency ( E = h ν ) and frequency and wavelength are inversely related ( ν = c/ λ ), it follows that energy is inversely related to wavelength. As wavelength decreases,

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
