# Atomic Spectra, Wavelength, and Frequency

Play a game to test your knowledge!

Atomic Spectic Terms | Definition |
---|---|

wavelength | the distance between 2 crests |

frequency | the number of cycles to pass a given point |

amplitude | wave's height |

Higher frequency | shorter wavelength |

lower frequency | longer wavelength |

Shorter wavelength | higher energy |

C | 3 x 10^8 |

Electrons absorbed energy | move to higher energy level |

electrons release enegy | emit light and moved down energy levels |

atomic emission spectrum | the frequencies of light emitted by an element separated in discrete lines |

ground state | lowest possible energy level |

E | hxv |

n=5 to n=1 | ultraviolet light |

n=3 to n=2 | red light |

n=4 to n=2 | green light |

n=5 to n=3 | infrared light |

photons | light quanta |

heisenburg uncertainty principle | its impossible to know the exactly the both the velocity and position of a particle at the same time. |
