Atomic Spectic TermsDefinition
wavelengththe distance between 2 crests
frequencythe number of cycles to pass a given point
amplitudewave's height
Higher frequencyshorter wavelength
lower frequencylonger wavelength
Shorter wavelengthhigher energy
C3 x 10^8
Electrons absorbed energymove to higher energy level
electrons release enegyemit light and moved down energy levels
atomic emission spectrumthe frequencies of light emitted by an element separated in discrete lines
ground statelowest possible energy level

n=5 to n=1ultraviolet light
n=3 to n=2 red light
n=4 to n=2green light
n=5 to n=3infrared light
photonslight quanta
heisenburg uncertainty principleits impossible to know the exactly the both the velocity and position of a particle at the same time.
