Re: Question 28B on Post Module Assessment for Photoelectric Effect

So what you need to do is account for the per mol portion of the threshold energy. The energy given was in terms of how much energy is needed to eject 1 mole of electrons of that metal. You need to find how much energy is needed to eject one electron. This can be easily done by dividing by the conve...

Re: Photoelectric Effect Module Question 27

all you need to do is multiply the frequency by plancks constant. The correct answer if you just do hv is 1.99*10^-18 J.

Re: Quantum numbers

The way to figure it out from my understanding is that 4 is the energy level it is in (the principle quantam number n equals 4 in this case) and f is determined by what l is equal to. In this case, the value of l, which is 3, corresponds with the the l value for the f orbital. Thus the answer, if pu...

Re: De Broglie's equation [ENDORSED]

Yes. De broglie's equation (lamba = h / p) is the equation that cannot be used for photons. However, c=lambda/v, E=hv, E = (hc)/lambda, and E=(1/2)mv^2 can all be used with light.

Re: problem 43 6th edition

The minimum uncertainty is change in velocity or delta (the triangle) v. In this case, delta v would be 1.65*10^5 m/s.

Re: calculating wavelength

Dr. Lavelle mentioned that E = hv can only be used for light. However, De Broglie's equation of lambda=h/p can only be used for objects with "rest" mass and velocity. "Rest" mass basically means anything that has mass when stationary.

Re: Energy Levels

As energy levels increase, the separating space between them becomes smaller and smaller. At "very high" levels, this gives way to a continuous range of all allowed energies. To corroborate this, during office hours, Dr. Lavelle mentioned that the energy levels eventually become a continuu...

Re: Seventh Edition- H21 [ENDORSED]

Don't get frustrated about it! It is really just a guess and check most of time and it does take some time. One tip that I have personally incorporated is starting with the least amount of total atoms for the elements in the equation. For instance, if there are 3 atoms of C vs 5 atoms of F I would s...

Re: Scientific Notation

It matters for things like sig figs. For instance, if your answer was 1330. but you only had 3 sig figs to work with, you would put it into scientific notation ie 1.33 *10^3 because this way you have the same answer and you have the right amount of sig figs.

Re: Rounding Off of 5

This is just a general rule of sig figs that we must use I believe. A lot of the documents on the website do indicate that we should round to the nearest even number. This is because we will be less precise if we just round up (we would overestimate) and if we just round down (we would underestimate...

Re: HW L7

You need to first convert tristearin and o2 (the reactants) to moles. Then using the molar ration of 2 moles of tristearin/163 moles O2, find how much of one reactant is necessary to full react with the other reactant. Then, you can find how much O2 you need to react full with tristearin. Once that ...

Re: Scientific Notation

Use scientific notation when dealing with very big numbers. Otherwise, it will be a lot more difficult to do multiplication and division without it. In addition, always round the number to the least amount of sig figs in the problem. This youtube vid on scientific notation really help me understand ...

Re: Sig Figs

Also, for sig fig rounding, if the last digit is above 5 round up (ie 2 sigfigs then 6.56 is 6.7) and if the last digit is below 5 round down (ie 2 sigfigs then 3.44 is 3.4).
