7.33 Careful spectrum analysis shows that the familiar yellow light of sodium lamps (such as street lamps) is made up of photons of two wavelengths, 589.0nm and 589.6nm. What is the difference in energy (in joules) between photons with these wavelengths? Answer: E=hv, E=hc/&lambda; E<sub>1</sub>=6.63x10<sup>-34</sup>J s(3x10<sup>8</sup>m/s)/(589.0nm x 1x10<sup>-9</sup>m) E<sub>1</sub>=3.377 x 10<sup>-19</sup>J E<sub>2</sub>=6.63x10<sup>-34</sup>J s(3x10<sup>8</sup>m/s)/(589.6nm x 1x10<sup>-9</sup>m) E<sub>2</sub>=3.373 x 10<sup>-19</sup>J E<sub>1</sub> - E<sub>2</sub>=3.377 x 10<sup>-19</sup>J - 3.373 x 10<sup>- 19</sup>J = 4 x 10<sup>-22</sup>J 7.83 Write the ground-state electron configurations for the following elements: B, V, Ni, I Answer: B: 1s<sup>2</sup>2s<sup>2</sup>2p<sup>1</sup> V: 1s<sup>2</sup>2s<sup>2</sup>2p<sup>6</sup>3s<sup>2</sup>3p<sup>6</sup>4s<s
