Properties of Waves
Wavelength (l) is the distance between identical points on
successive waves.
Amplitude is the vertical distance from the midline of a
wave to the peak or trough.
Frequency (n) is the number of waves that pass through a
particular point in 1 second (Hz = 1 cycle/s).
The speed (u) of the wave = l x n

Maxwell (1873), proposed that visible light consists of
electromagnetic waves.

electromagnetic waves.

Mystery #1, “Heated Solids Problem”
Solved by Planck in 1900
When solids are heated, they emit electromagnetic radiation
over a wide range of wavelengths.
Radiant energy emitted by an object at a certain temperature
depends on its wavelength.
Energy (light) is emitted or absorbed in discrete
units (quantum).

Calculate the energy (in joules) of a photons with a wavelength
of 5.00 x 104 nm (infrared region).
l = 5.00 x 104 (nm) x (1 x 10-9 (m)/(nm) = 5.00 x 10-5 (m)

E=hxc/l
E = 6.63 x 10-34 (J•s) x 3.00 x 10 8 (m/s) / 5.00 x 10-5 (m)

Light has both:
1. wave nature
2. particle nature

depends how strongly electrons
are held in the metal

are emitted. Calculate the energy (in joules) associated with
the photons if the wavelength of the X rays is 0.154 nm.
