Study Notes

Electromagnetic Radiation

  • Frequency of electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength of 3.33 x 10^-8 m can be calculated using the formula: frequency = speed of light / wavelength
  • Speed of electromagnetic radiation with a frequency of 1.33 x 10^17 Hz and a wavelength of 2.25 nm is 3.0 x 10^8 m/s (speed of light)

Photon Energy

  • Energy of a photon of red light with a frequency of 4.48 x 10^14 Hz can be calculated using the formula: energy = Planck's constant x frequency

History of Electromagnetic Waves

  • Visible light was proposed to consist of electromagnetic waves by James Clerk Maxwell

Quantum Mechanical Model

  • Max Planck proposed in 1900 that energy is emitted and absorbed by atoms and molecules in discrete packets (quanta)
  • Analysis of emitted light revealed that an element's chemical behavior is related to its atomic structure
  • Atoms are described in terms of their structure as having a small, dense positively charged nucleus surrounded by clouds of electrons
  • Main energy levels, sublevels, and orbitals are related to the electronic structure of atoms, which determines their chemical behavior

Atomic Structure

  • Valence electrons are responsible for chemical bonding and are located in the outermost energy level of an atom
  • The primary force responsible for holding two atoms together is electrostatic attraction

Chemical Bonding

  • Cations and anions form during ionic bonding through the transfer of valence electrons
  • Valence electrons are located in the outermost energy level of an atom and are responsible for chemical bonding
  • In Group 6A of the periodic table, the electronic configuration of an element is ns^2 np^4

Compounds and Ions

  • The compound formed by the combination of aluminum and oxygen is aluminum oxide
  • The polyatomic ion with the formula SO3^2- is named sulfite
  • Metallic bonding arises from the electrostatic attractive force between conduction electrons
  • The systematic name for the compound with the metal cation Fe3+ and the chromate anion is iron(III) chromate
  • Polyatomic ions in which a central atom is surrounded by one to four oxygen atoms are referred to as oxoanions
