Unformatted text preview: = Atomic Line Spectra and Johann Balmerss empirical equation to describe them. Blackbody Radiation and Max Plancks introduction of the quantum concept to explain it. The Planck Equation ( E = h = hc/ ) and calculations involving it. The Photoelectric Effect and Einsteins introduction of the photon to explain it. The Bohr (Planetary) Model of the atom proposed by Neils Bohr. Calculating energies and radii of electrons using Bohrs equations (provided): r n = n 2 a o and E n = R H /n 2 (where a o = 53 pm and R H = 2.179 x 10 18 J) Electron excitation and relaxation between energy levels. Calculations involving electron transitions via Bohrs equation: E = R H 1 1 . n i 2 n f 2 Ionization (loss of the electron) occurs when n f =...
