Chemistry 110 Midterm 1 October 11, 2005 6. A two-photon absorption transition is observed using a laser that emits light having a wavelength of 500 nm? Which of the following statements is/are TRUE about this electronic transition? A. The single photon transition would be caused by UV light with a wavelength of 1000 nm B. The single photon transition would be caused by IR light with a wavelength of 1000 nm C. The single photon transition would be caused by UV light with a wavelength of 250 nm D. The single photon transition would be caused by IR light with a wavelength of 250 nm E. None of the other four statements is true 7. Which of the following statements is/are TRUE ? A. The wavefunction, ! , is a solution to the Schrodinger equation B. The square of the wavefunction, ! 2 , is the total probability of finding the electron in a spherical shell at distance r from the nucleus C. Orbitals with the same n cannot overlap in space D. For the same orbital type (i.e. same l quantum number), orbitals with the higher n value will have a more
