**Unformatted text preview: **ATOMIC STRUCTURE AND PERIODICITY Zumdahl Chapter 7 Two areas of Physics y Classical Mechanics- Newtons laws works for big things y Wave/Quantum Mechanics- applies to electrical and magnetic phenomena Properties of Waves y Wavelength- ( ) the distance between the crests or troughs of waves y Frequency- ( ) the number of times a crest passes a certain point in a second y Velocity- (v) the speed of the peak in space y Amplitude- the height from the mid-point to the crest y Energy- of a wave, definition later The Nature of Waves y As the wavelength decreases the frequency increases The Relationship Between and y If crests go by in one second, then the distance traveled in one second (speed) is velocity, which is equal to the frequency ( ) times the wavelength ( ). y For light velocity = c = 3.00 x 10 8 m/s Determining Frequency y The wavelength of light emitted by a HeNe laser is 632.8 nm. What is the frequency of this radiation? The frequency of a particular color of light is 8.57 x The frequency of a particular color of light is 8....
