Atomic Structure Problem Set
1.Calculate [delta]E, frequency, and wavelength
for the following transitions in the hydrogen spectrum.
a.Lyman [alpha] line n=1 to n=2
b.Balmer line n=2 to n=4
c.Ionization of H n=1 to n=[infinity]
2.Compare the three different types of radioactive particles. What are the differences between these particles?
3.Based upon the wavelength information given in
figure 7.3, calculate the typical energy in J mol-1 for gamma
rays, and Radio Waves.
4.I just bought a new truck, calculate the
DeBroglie wavelength if it is traveling down the highway at 65
miles per hour (the
truck has a weight of 3675 pounds). Calculate the DeBroglie wavelength for an electron (mass 9.10953 x 10-31 kg)
traveling at a speed of 100,000 miles per hour. Compare the wavelengths and their relative significance.
5.Sketch the shape of the s, px, py, and pz orbitals.
