Unformatted text preview: c. De Broglie proposed that matter, like light, could have both wave and particle properties d. The photoelectric effect shows that light behaves as a wave. D. Which of the following transitions would absorb a photon with the highest frequency ? a. n = 2 n = 3 b. n = 3 n = 1 c. n = 5 n = 6 d. n = 1 n = 3 2. (6 points) Write the condensed electron configuration for the following (be careful, no partial credit): a. Manganese [Ar]4s 2 3d 5 b. Phosphorous [Ne]3s 2 3p 3 c. Tin [Kr]5s 2 4d 10 5p 2 Chem 127 Dr. Abel Quiz 1A 3. (5 points) Calculate the shortest wavelength photon emitted by the hydrogen atom in undergoing a transition from the n=6 level. Report your answer in nanometers. Shortest wavelength, highest change in energy, so n=6 to n=1 1/ = 1.097 x 10 7 (1/1 2 1/6 2 ) 1/ = 1.067 x 10 7 m1 = 9.376 x 108 m 93.76 nm...
