Miranda Pryor Chem 1310 A4 Post Lab ?’s: Quantum Mechanics Lab 1) A. The sign for change of energy should be negative in order to show the direction of energy flow. In atomic emission, the electron is always going down in energy, so it has to be negative. It was derived by multiplying Planck’s constant by the speed of light and then dividing that value by our observed wavelength.

Unformatted text preview: B. The value our group derived for Rxhc is 2.22e-18. This is about the same but a little off. The reason it is a little off is probably because the values we saw for the different wavelengths of light were incorrect. If these were incorrect, then the rest of our calculations from there would cause our slope to be a little off. 2) A....
