EXAM #2 RESULTS THIS WEEKS SCHEDULE LECTURE- LAB- Announcements
Energy is Quantized Light also acts like particles Photon= Packet of energy Energy is proportional to Frequency (and ) Plancks Equation:
UV-B Light and DNA Damage
Some more examples How much energy does a mole of 230nm photons possess? Can this light break a C-C bond with an energy of 346kJ/mol?
Does 1 mole of 1200nm photons have enough energy to break a C-C bond? 1. Yes 2. No 3. Abstain
Where does light come from? Excited solids emit a continuous spectrum of light Excited gas-phase atoms emit only specific wavelengths of light (lines)
Light emitted by solids
Light emitted by hydrogen gas
Emission spectra of gaseous atoms Excited atoms emit light of only certain wavelengths The wavelengths of emitted light depend on the element.
Absorption and Emission Spectra
Line spectra of atoms
The Bohr Model of Hydrogen Atom Light absorbed or emitted is from electrons moving between energy levels Only certain energies are observed Therefore, only certain energy levels exist Energy levels are Quantized
