CHM 114 GENERAL CHEMISTRY I FALL 2018 TAKE HOME ASSIGNMENT #3 SHOW YOUR WORK! HAPPY OCTOBER! NAME:___________________________________ 100 Points total 1. (20 points) a. A photon is emitted when an electron relaxes from the n=4 to the n=2 energy levels in a Hydrogen atom. According the Bohr model of Hydrogen, what are the wavelength and frequency of this photon? (hint: your textbook has an equation relating energy level ‘n’ to energy in the Bohr atom!) for each energy level, E = (1/n 2 ) * 2.179 x 10 -18 the energy difference, then, is 4.09 x 10 -19 J from there, we can use our equations governing the photon. frequency = 6.17 E14 Hz wavelength = 4.86 E-7 m b. That photon is travelling through space when it passes by a black hole, which ‘red-shifts’ its wavelength. Red-shifting is a phenomenon in which a gravitational body (like a black hole) literally stretches the wavelength of a nearby wave. In this case, your photon’s wavelength is doubled. What is the new energy of this photon?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
