7.1 Electromagnetic radiation provides the clue to the electronic structures of atoms 3 Light Acts as a Wave Wavelength ( λ ) - the distance light travels to complete one cycle Frequency ( ν ) - the number of wave cycles in one second § Units are cycles per second (cps or s-1) or Hertz (Hz) § Hz = s-1

7.1 Electromagnetic radiation provides the clue to the electronic structures of atoms 4 Frequency and Wavelength are Related Note that as the frequency of the wave increases, the wavelength decreases Regardless of the frequency, light travels at the same speed, c c = λ × ν § The speed of light ( c ) = 2.99792458 × 108 m/s Learning Check : If the frequency of a radio station is 300 MHz, what is the wavelength in m? 0.999 m

7.1 Electromagnetic radiation provides the clue to the electronic structures of atoms 6 Photoelectric Effect (Particle Theory of Light) Albert Einstein (1905) E = h ν Shining light on a clean metal surface may eject electrons There is a threshold level needed to eject the electrons (a work function specific to the metal) § Increasing intensity does not cause the effect § Increasing the frequency of the light does

7.1 Electromagnetic radiation provides the clue to the electronic structures of atoms 7 Energy and Light Waves The energy of a wave is proportional to the wave frequency, E = h ν § h = Planck’s constant , 6.626 × 10-34 J•s/photon Learning Check: Why is ultraviolet light (320 nm) more penetrating than a red light (700 nm)? Use energies to make your case. UV light λ 7.0 × 10-9 m λ 3.2 × 10-9 m Red light E 320 = 6.2 × 10-19 J E 700 = 2.8 × 10-19 J
