Re: Ground State

Ground state is defined as the state of lowest energy; therefore, you can identify when electrons in an atom are in their ground state if you are unable to transfer electrons to different orbitals

Re: Question about energy levels [ENDORSED]

As far as I know, there is no literal limit as to how high n can go; however, realistically I don't believe n would ever amount to numbers greater than 8 or 9

Re: Electron Energy Levels

Electrons orbiting around the outermost shell of an atom have the lowest amount of energy because the distance between the nucleus and the outer shells is greater; therefore, valence electrons are easier to remove than electrons inhabiting orbitals closer to the nucleus.

Re: What is a vacuum?

I believe when Dr. Lavelle stated that the photoelectric effect must be done in a vacuum, this means that the experiment must be conducted free of any external particles. There must be nothing in the region in which the experiment takes place, simply whatever pressure may exist (but free of any prot...

Re: What is Significant about Black Body Radiation? [ENDORSED]

A black body is defined as an object that absorbs and emits all frequencies of radiation without favor; and the "black-body radiation" is the electromagnetic radiation emitted by a black body.

Hope that helps!

Re: wavelength description [ENDORSED]

By definition, amplitude is the height of the wave above the center line. So, when given a wave on an axis, you can visualize its amplitude by finding the center of the wave and measuring how high the wave's peak reaches, which would be your amplitude.
