Chemistry Notes Morgan Scott Electron Notes Pieces of the Universe The universe is made up of matter and energy Matter is made up of atoms Energy can travel through waves All Waves have the same basic structure Waves Longitudinal and transverse Wavelength= λ = length of wave Frequency= v = how many waves pass a point in a certain amount of time Amplitude = A Period= 1/ frequency Speed of light = C= λv Quantum Theory Planck’s theory relates energy to frequency Fixed amount of energy emitted The energy a given substance gives off or takes in is fixed due to the quantum theory - certain atoms restrict energy Electrons Electrons have a charge of negative one and a mass of zero Electrons are too small and fast to study with simple methods Duality Electrons are both particles and waves= duality theory Matter behaves are waves - De Brogolie Patterns formed when electrons reflected off of metal surfaces De Brogolie used photoelectric effects to predict patterns- wave-like

    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.
