Wednesday, October-06-10 - Energy of electrons is quantized o And there are discrete energy levels of atoms o Atoms cant be between energy levels they must be set at a certain one ( creates a spectra per atom) o Quantization of potential energy Based on a staircase image o If we have different energy levels possible for the electrons it is possible to have electronic transitions were electrons switch energy levels to either a higher energy level or a lower one. Emission is when it drops energy levels, while absorption is when it goes up an energy level. o Photon = hv = hc/ lambda = e 2 – e 1 ( Equation for the amount of energy lost by going through energy levels) o If the difference is in the visible spectrum or 400-800 nm then it will create colour
