3. Prerequisite Edit
What students should know and have done before the start of the unit
4. Goals Edit
Explain that light emission/absorption by an atom is caused by the movement of a electrons between energy states. Explain the dependence of frequency spectrum on the element being excited. Identify positive and negative aspects of the Aristotilian, Bohr, Fermi, and modern models of atoms. Identify 4 quantum characteristics of electrons.
Given the initial and final states of an electron and element, make a rough prediction of frequency of absorbed and emitted light.
Represent energy states of electrons using...
Understand the important experiments that proved and helped to develop atomic models.
