Properties of Waves Wavelength ( ) is the distance between identical points on successive waves. Amplitude is the vertical distance from the midline of a wave to the peak or trough. 7.1
Properties of Waves Frequency ( ) is the number of waves that pass through a particular point in 1 second (Hz = 1 cycle/s). The speed ( u ) of the wave = x 7.1

x = c = c/ = 3.00 x 10 8 m/s / 6.0 x 10 4 Hz = 5.0 x 10 3 m Radio wave A photon has a frequency of 6.0 x 10 4 Hz. Convert this frequency into wavelength (nm). Does this frequency fall in the visible region? = 5.0 x 10 12 7.1
Mystery #1, “Black Body Problem” Solved by Planck in 1900 Energy (light) is emitted or absorbed in discrete units (quantum). E = h x Planck’s constant (h) h = 6.63 x 10 -34 J s 7.1

Light has both: 2. wave nature 3. particle nature h = KE + BE Mystery #2, “Photoelectric Effect” Solved by Einstein in 1905 Photon is a “particle” of light KE = h - BE h KE e - 7.2
E = h x E = 6.63 x 10 -34 (J s) x 3.00 x 10 8 (m/s) / 0.154 x 10 -9 E = 1.29 x 10 -15 E = h x c /  7.2 When copper is bombarded with high-energy electrons, X rays are emitted. Calculate the energy (in joules) associated with the photons if the wavelength of the X rays is 0.154 nm.
