Questions of the day l.jpg
Questions of the Day

  • What an atom? How are they made?

  • What is spectroscopy? How is it used in Astronomy?

  • How are atoms and spectroscopy related? Why is this important to astronomy?

Atoms l.jpg

  • They emit and absorb energy

  • Elements are unique atomic structures

  • Element A + Element B = Compound

  • Unit of a compound: Molecule

Atomic structure and spectra l.jpg
Atomic Structure and Spectra

  • Electrons

    • J. J. Tomson (1897)

      • Cathode ray tubes

      • Negative versus Positive

      • Created electric field around the ray tube

      • Negative charged particles flowed away from positive terminal.

Atomic structure cont l.jpg
Atomic Structure (cont.)

  • Electrons (cont.)

    • Robert Millikan (1906)

      • Charged oil drops were deflected using charged plates

      • Tomson had given limits to mass of electrons, but Millikan found the q/m

      • Masselectron = 9.11 x 10-11 kg

    • Tomson suggest raisin in plum pudding model

    • Another structure was suggested by presence of alpha, beta, and gamma particles

Atomic structure cont7 l.jpg
Atomic Structure (cont.)

  • Nucleus

    • Ernst Rutherford (1907)

      • Focused a beam of alpha particles through a thin sheet of Au (Gold) then detected behind by zinc sulfide that sparked when alpha hit it.

      • Most particles went through the sheet of Au, but some were back scattered by a small object, assumed to be a nucleus

      • Regions assumed to be 10-13 to 10-8 cm

Atomic structure cont8 l.jpg
Atomic Structure (cont.)

  • Nucleus (cont.)

    • Rutherford (1911)

      • Used alpha to break up the nucleus of a N (nitrogen) atom and found 7 discrete unit of charge like the electrons, but positively charged

      • Called the particles protons

      • Lead to atomic number for each element

    • Maxwell put the proton and electron together with the electron orbiting the proton

Bohr model of the atom l.jpg
Bohr Model of the Atom

  • Bohr’s theory

    • Allowed orbits have angular momentum conserved and angular force corrected

      • mvr = nh/2

      • kq1q2/r2 = mv2/r

    • Solving the equations simultaneously we get the Bohr radius of 0.529 X 10-10 m

Bohr model cont l.jpg
Bohr Model (cont.)

  • Stable orbits do not give off radiation, but the 21 cm line is an exception to this rule

  • Quantum jumps: used the H (hydrogen) atom

    • En = EI /n2

    • hf = EH – EI

  • Bohr model worked wonderfully for H, but did not work for higher elements so we needed a new science, Quantum Mechanics

Gustav kirchoff l.jpg
Gustav Kirchoff

  • 1824 –1887

  • Student of Gauss

  • Taught at Berlin, Brausla, and Hiedelberg

  • Vorleschugen uber Matematische Physik

  • Created laws for electrical circuits, spectroscopy, and topology in mathematics

Kirchoff s first rule l.jpg
Kirchoff’s First Rule

  • A hot and opaque solid, liquid, or highly compressed gas emits a continuous spectrum.

  • Example: Light Bulb filament

Kirchoff s second rule l.jpg
Kirchoff’s Second Rule

  • A hot, transparent gas produces a spectrum of bright lines (emission lines). The number of these lines depend on which elements are present in the gas.

  • Example: A neon sign

Kirchoff s third rule l.jpg
Kirchoff’s Third Rule

  • If a continuous spectrum (from a hot, opaque solid, liquid, or gas) passes through a transparent gas at a lower temperature, the cooler gas will cause the appearance of dark lines (absorption lines).

  • Example: Light from the Sun.

Temperature and brightness l.jpg

  • Wien’s Law

Wave nature of light l.jpg
Wave Nature of Light

  • Diffraction

    • Huygens

    • Light bending around an opaque object

  • Interference

    • Young’s Double slit experiment

Particle nature of light l.jpg
Particle Nature of Light

  • Photoelectric effect

  • Quanta

    • E = hf

  • Lenses

Homework 6 l.jpg
Homework 6

  • What are the parts of the electromagnetic spectrum? What part can we see? What everyday objects emit each part of the spectrum?

  • What is the frequency of light that is 6.365X10-10m? (Remember that the speed of light is 3.000X108 m/s)

  • Page 127 CQ 1,2 P 2

  • What is the energy of the particle of light with a wavelength of 6.365X10-10m? (Remember the Heisenberg uncertainty number, h, is 6.63X10-34Js)
