Unformatted text preview: )DOO &+ :RUNVKHHW 1. Briefly explain what is meant by "wave-particle duality of light" in your own words. 2. What equation corresponds to the wave nature of light? Diagram the equation as part of your response. Note: diagramming an equation involves labeling each term with its common name, its Greek name if it is a Greek letter, its units (which may have various names) and finally discussing the proportionality of the various terms in the equation. 3. What equation corresponds to the particle nature of light? Diagram the equation as part of your response. 4. Using a little algebra, derive an equation that expresses a photon's energy in terms of its wavelength. What proportionality exists between energy and wavelength? 5. Calculate the frequency of light that corresponds to the following wavelengths in a vacuum. a) 700 nm b) 45 pm c) 12 km d) 367 6. How would doubling the frequency of a given photon affect the following values?...
