What is a photon? What is an electromagnetic wave? How are the photon and wave pictures of light related? Make a sketch of an atom, showing its parts. How do the wave properties of electrons result in only certain electron orbits being allowed in an atom? How does the fact that only certain electron orbits can occur result in photons of only certain wavelengths being emitted? Describe emission and absorption line spectra and the conditions under which each occurs. Describe black body radiation and the relations between temperature and the power emitted and the wavelengths of light emitted. Describe the Doppler shift.
