2021-2022 Objectives of Atomic Structure

Essential Questions (EQ2): Are there any basic particles ?

The student should be able to:

1. Trace the development of atomic theory and the structure of the atom from the Greeks (Democritus) to the present (Dalton, Thompson, Rutherford, and Bohr).

2. Explain what light is in terms of DeBroglie, Planck (particle characteristics), and light characteristics.

3. Describe the electromagnetic spectrum in terms of wavelength and energy; memorize the infrared and ultraviolet region w.r.t. visible spectrum and memorize red is 700nm and violet is 400nm.

4. Be able to calculate energy, wavelength and frequency using all appropriate equations and how the variable relate to each other (e.g. direct vs, indirect proportion).

5. Be able to calculate the wavelength in nm (color) from the energy (in J) released/emitted when electron's fall back down to the original energy level from the high energy level. Also the visa versa calculations (energy to wavelength).

6. Be able to explain the significant of a bright line spectra and what each line indicates (mean with respect to the atom).
