GENERALIZED RYDBERG EQUATION: 1 1 = 1.097 x 107 ( 2 λ n 1 1 ) m 1 2 n 2 where: n1 and n2 are integers n2 > n1 Rydberg did not provide an actual explanation of the line spectra 7 Chemistry 101 Chapter 7 PLANCK’S QUANTIZATION OF ENERGY · Planck’s theory is based on experimental observat ions. Background: · THE LIGHT GIVEN OFF BY A HOT SOLID VARIES WITH TEMPERATURE At lower temperatures (750 °C) ­ red light is emitted (a heated solid glows red) At higher temperatures (1200 °C) ­ yellow and blue light is also emitted and mixes wit h the red light (the heated solid glows white) Planck’s Explanation: 1. The atoms of the so lid vibrate with a specific frequency which depends on the: ­ type of so lid, and ­ temperature of the solid 2. An atom could have only certain energies o f vibrat ion: where: E = nhn E = energy n = an integer, called quantum number (can be 1, 2, 3…) n = frequency of vibrat ion h = Planck’s constant = 6.63 x 10-34...
