Chem 209 – Chapter 8 Notes - Magnetic field component of electromagnetic wave lies in plane perpendicular to electric field - Electromagnetic waves created as result of accelerating charged particles - 1 angstrom = 1e-10 m - Speed of light c = 3e8 m/s - All electromagnetic waves travel at velocity c in vacuum, where c = (wavelength) (frequency) - Energy of wave is proportional to square of amplitude, or combined amplitude in the case of constructive/destructive interference - Atomic spectra of light: can be continuous (made of many wavelengths) or discontinuous (made of discrete concentrated wavelengths) - Balmer deduced the hydrogen spectra equation (for finding discrete frequencies of light in the spectrum as a function of n, an integer): frequency = (3.2881e15)((1/2 2 ) – (1/n 2 ) - Photoelectric effect: energy of photons incoming must exceed some threshold energy before electrons are emitted - Photons have energy = h(frequency) - Bohr atom consists of circular orbits where each orbit has locked in constant energy,

    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.
