Bohr’s Successes and failures: The wave nature of the electron The Photon and Quantum Read 192-194 (up to “The significance...”) Introduced to the concept of the photon light is still traveling as a wave, but not as an unlimited one Like this Not this The energy of a photon is: E = hv I.e. energy is dependent upon frequency Pg. 219 - 220, Q. 6.12, 6.19, 6.21, 6.23 Explaining the line spectrum Read remainder of pg. 194 The jumps between orbitals have different energies (like jumping between different steps on a staircase) Energy dictates frequency (E = h ν ) frequency dictates type of EM radiation, or type of colour Conclusion: the different lines of the spectra are explained by the different energies between orbitals The Bohr model of the atom Recall that Bohr added to Rutherford’s model the idea of fixed shells Evidence for Bohr’s Theory came from the existence of line spectra However, Bohr had difficulty explaining other observations Study notes

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
