What is the formula for Energy?
E=1/2m(v)squared, or Energy is equal to one half, times mass, times velocity squared.
How many joules in a calorie?
4,200 Joules in a calorie
What is the formula for force?
F=ma, or Force is equal to mass times attraction
What are photons?
Particles of light
List the 5 different types of light waves.
Radio Waves, Microwaves, Sun's Ultra-Violet Rays, X-Rays, and Gamma Rays
Ready My Son's Exotic Gift.
If an electron only drops one orbital level, what type of photon is emitted and why?
A wave, such as a Radio wave would be emitted, because less energy had to be expended, which let off a photon with a low frequency and a longer wavelength.
If an electron drops several orbital levels, what type of photon is emitted, and why?
A wave, such as an X-ray would be emitted as there is a large amount of excess energy to let off to return to ground state, which includes a photon that has a higher frequency and shorter wavelengths.
Where does visible light fall on the electromagnetic spectrum?
Between Infrared Light and UV Light.
What is Pauli's
Once an electron fills a certain position, no other electron can "sit there." Once an orbital is filled with the maximum number of protons and neutrons any more will be "bumped" to a higher level.
What holds matter together?
The attraction between oppositely charged particles
