An object can gain or lose energy by absorbing or emitting radiant energy in QUANTA of specific frequency ( ) 2. light has particle character (photons) c Planck's equation is E = h = h E = energy of one photon h = Planck's constant = 6.626 10-34 Compact disk players use lasers that emit red light with a wavelength of 685 nm. What is the energy of one photon of this light? What is the energy of one mole of photons of that red light?

The Photoelectric Effect Light can strike the surface of some metals causing electrons to be ejected. It demonstrates the particle nature of light. What are some practical uses of the photoelectric effect? Electronic door openers Light switches for street lights Exposure meters for cameras Albert Einstein explained the effect Explanation involved light having particlelike behavior. The minimum energy needed to eject the e- is The Photoelectric Effect E = h (Planck's equation) Einstein won the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics for this work. From the value of energy we calculate the frequency ( ) and, with this we calculate lambda ( ). Firstly, we need to calculate the energy in J per atom; it is given in kJ per mol of atoms... kJ 1000 J 1 mol 2.0 102 x x = 3.3 10-19 Joule per atom mol kJ 6.022 1023 atoms E 3.3 10-19 Joule = = = ? s-1 h 6.626 10-34 J s c 2.998 108 m s-1 = = = ? 5.0 1014 s-1 (Visible light) E=h Now, speed of light, c = 1 nm 6.0 10-7 m = ? nm 1 10-9 m The energy of photon is calculated with Planck's Equation c E = h = h If calculated E 6.7 10-17 J, the switch will work. 1 10-9 m 540 nm = ? m nm 2.998 108 m s-1 E = 6.626 10-34 J s = ?

Atomic Line Spectra and the Bohr Atom (Niels Bohr, 1885-1962) An emission spectrum is formed by an electric current passing through a gas in a vacuum tube (at very low pressure) which causes the gas to emit light. Sometimes called a bright line spectrum. Atomic Line Spectra and the Bohr The Rydberg Atom equation is an empirical equation that relates the wavelengths of the lines in the hydrogen spectrum. Lines are due to transitions n2 upper level n1 lower level 1 1 1 = R 2 - 2 n n2 1 R is the Rydberg constant R = 1.097 107 m -1 n1 < n 2 n' s refer to the numbers of the energy levels in the emission spectrum of hydrogen Example 5-8. What is the wavelength in angstroms of light emitted when the hydrogen atom's energy changes from n = 4 to n = 2? 1 1 = R n = n = 4 to 2 - 2 2 n 1 n2 1 1 1 7 -1 1 = 1.097 10 m 2 - 2 4 2 1 = 1.097 107 m -1 ( 0.250 - 0.0625) 1 =1.097 10 7 m -1 ( 0.1875) 1 = 2.057 10 6 m -1 Therefore, = ? This is the green line in the H spectrum Atomic Line Spectra and the Bohr Atom An absorption spectrum is formed by shining a beam of white light through a sample of gas. Absorption spectra indicate the wavelengths of light that have been absorbed. Every element has a unique spectrum. Thus we can use spectra to identify elements. This can be done in the lab, stars, fireworks, etc. Bohr Model of the Atom planetary model considers only the particle nature of the electron p+ & n packed tightly in nucleus electrons traveling in circular paths, orbits, in space surrounding nucleus size, energy, and e capacity of orbits increase as does distance from nucleus (orbital radius) orbits quantized e e e P+ n e e e e Energy Levels E n=6 n=5 n=4 n=3 n=2 n=1 E n=6 n=5 n=4 n=3 n=2 Exciting the Atom from ground level (n = 1) to upper levels (n > 1) Energy is absorbed n=1 E n=6 n=5 n=4 n=3 n=2 Decay of the Atom from upper levels to lower levels: Energy is emitted Emission of Photons h n=1 E n=6 n=5 n=4 n=3 n=2 Balmer Series, n = 2, for hydrogen. There are other series. h n=1 Calculating E Difference Between two Levels A school teacher was the first to find this! Johann Balmer 1 1 E= |Efinal - Einitial| = RH( - ) nf2 ni2 RH= 2.18 x 10-18 J/atom = 1312 kJ/mol ni and nf = principal quantum numbers of the initial and final states: nf < ni 1,2,3,4....

The Wave Nature of the Electron In 1925 Louis de Broglie published his Ph.D. dissertation. A crucial element of his dissertation is that electrons have wave-like properties. The electron wavelengths are described by the de Broglie relationship. h = mv h = Planck' s constant m = mass of particle v = velocity of particle The Wave-Particle Duality of the Electron Consequently, we now know that electrons (in fact - all particles) have both a particle and a wave like character. This wave-particle duality is a fundamental property of submicroscopic particles (not for macroscopic ones.) The Wave-Particle Duality of the Electron Example: Determine the wavelength, in m and , of an electron, with mass 9.11 x 10-31 kg, having a velocity of 5.65 x 107 m/s. h = 6.626 x 10-34 Js = 6.626 x 10-34 kg m2/s h 6.626 10-34 kg m2s-1 = = mv 9.11 10-31kg 5.65x107 ms-1 =?m =? The Wave-Particle Duality of the Electron Example: Determine the wavelength, in m, of a 0.22 caliber bullet, with mass 3.89 x 10-3 kg, having a velocity of 395 m/s, ~ 1300 ft/s. h = 6.626 x 10-34 Js = 6.626 x 10-34 kg m2/s h 6.626 10-34 kg m2s-1 = = mv 3.89 10-3kg 395 ms-1 =? Quantum Mechanical Model of the Atom considers both particle and wave nature of electrons Heisenberg and Born in 1927 developed the concept of the Uncertainty Principle: It is impossible to determine simultaneously both the position and momentum of an electron (or any other small particle). Consequently, we must speak of the electrons' position about the atom in terms of probability functions, i.e., wave equation written for each electron. These probability functions are represented as orbitals in quantum mechanics. They are the wave equations squared and plotted in 3 dimensions. Schrdinger's Model of the Atom Basic Postulates of Quantum Theory 1. Atoms and molecules can exist only in certain energy states. In each energy state, the atom or molecule has a definite energy. When an atom or molecule changes its energy state, it must emit or absorb just enough energy to bring it to the new energy state (the quantum condition). 1. Atoms or molecules emit or absorb radiation (light) as they change their energies. The frequency of the light emitted or absorbed is related to the energy change by a simple equation. E = h = hc Schrdinger's Model of the Atom 1. The allowed energy states of atoms and molecules can be described by sets of numbers called quantum numbers. Quantum numbers are the solutions of the Schrdinger, Heisenberg & Dirac equations. Four quantum numbers are necessary to describe energy states of electrons in atoms. Schrdinger's eqn: b2 2 2 2 - 2 2 + 2 + 2 + V = E 8 m x y z Orbital region of space within which one can expect to find an electron no solid boundaries electron capacity of 2 per orbital space surrounding nucleus divided up into large volumes called shells shells subdivided into smaller volumes called subshells orbitals located in subshells as shells get further from nucleus, energy, size, and electron capacity increase shells, subshells, and orbitals described by quantum numbers Quantum Numbers The principal quantum number has the symbol n n = 1, 2, 3, 4, ... indicates shell K, L, M, N, ... shells as n increases, so does size, energy, and electron capacity The electron's energy depends principally on n . Quantum Numbers The angular momentum (azimuthal) quantum number has the symbol . It indicates subshell. = 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, .......(n-1) = s, p, d, f, g, h, ....... Subshells h tells us the shape of the orbitals. These orbitals are the volume around the atom that the electrons occupy 90-95% of the time. This is one of the places where Heisenberg's Uncertainty principle comes into play. The symbol for the magnetic quantum number is m . m = - , (- + 1), (- +2), .....0, ......., ( -2), ( -1), If = 0 (or an s orbital), then m = 0. Notice that there is only 1 value of m . This implies that there is one s orbital per n value. n 1 Magnetic Quantum Number, m If = 1 (or a p orbital), then m = -1,0,+1. There are 3 values of m . Thus there are three p orbitals per n value. n 2 If = 2 (or a d orbital), then m = -2, -1, 0, +1, +2. There are 5 values of m . Thus there are five d orbitals per n value. n 3 If = 3 (or an f orbital), then m = -3, -2, -1, 0, +1, +2, +3. There are 7 values of m . Thus there are seven f orbitals per n value, n 4 Magnetic Quantum Number, m Theoretically, this series continues on to g, h, i, etc. orbitals. Practically speaking atoms that have been discovered or made up to this point in time only have electrons in s, p, d, or f orbitals in their ground state configurations.
