Unformatted text preview: -element light through prism will not show cont. spectrum (maybe 2 bands) Line spectrum-Bohr tried to explain this by proposing a new atomic model => Bohr model-ring model/orbital path model-electrons can jump up tracks when heated and down tracks when cooled-ladder model cannot stop halfway b/w tracks-good at predicting energy-incorrect structure Orbital electron cloud-s orbital like circle-p orbital like propeller-quantum mechanics-energy comes in waves-wavelength = => m/nm-amplitude = h => m, nm-frequency = => 1/s = Hz = s-1-larger wavelength, lower energy-larger frequency, higher energy-E = h(frequency)-h = Planks constant = 6.626x10^8 m/s-energy smallest unit = 1 quantum-energy comes in multiples of quanta-E = nh(nu)-h(nu) = 1 quantum...
