Chemistry NotesMorgan Scott Electron NotesPieces of the Universe The universe is made up of matter and energy Matter is made up of atomsEnergy can travel through wavesAll Waves have the same basic structureWavesLongitudinal and transverseWavelength= λ = length of waveFrequency= v = how many waves pass a point in a certain amount of timeAmplitude = APeriod= 1/ frequencySpeed of light = C= λvQuantum Theory Planck’s theory relates energy to frequency Fixed amount of energy emittedThe energy a given substance gives off or takes in is fixed due to the quantum theory - certain atoms restrict energyElectrons Electrons have a charge of negative one and a mass of zeroElectrons are too small and fast to study with simple methodsDuality Electrons are both particles and waves= duality theory Matter behaves are waves - De BrogoliePatterns formed when electrons reflected off of metal surfacesDe Brogolie used photoelectric effects to predict patterns- wave-like
