Week 2 Homework Problems

For the week 2 homework, should we only be doing the problems from the Quantum World section? I just wanted to make sure before getting started on it.

He didn't specify but that is what we covered in the last 2 lectures so I have been doing problems from the Quantum World homework.

EDIT:
An email was just sent out and it stated:
"Since students want to focus on the high school review topics for test 1 they can hand in homework #2 covering review topics and/or quantum. HW #3 (Week 3) will be only quantum topics."

So this week it's either but next week it is quantum.

I sent email to the class:

"As stated in the Syllabus, students submit homework on recently covered material.
Since students want to focus on the high school review topics for test 1 they can hand in homework #2 covering review topics and/or quantum.

HW #3 (Week 3) will be only quantum topics."

He sent out an email earlier today. You can do problems from last week's section or the quantum one.

You can do whatever is relevant to the class. Because we have a test on Tuesday over general chem, we can still submit homework in the fundamentals section.

Thanks! I was sort of confused, so we’re allowed to solve problems from both fundamentals and quantum list.

Hey, we are allowed to solve problems for both or just one or the other it all depends on if you feel as though you need more practice with the high school review module for the test next week during the discussion sections.

This isn't a homework problem but under Fundamental E exercises, is the problem, "The approximate population of Earth is 7.0 billion people. How many moles of people inhabit Earth? (b) If all people were pea pickers, how long would it take for the entire population of Earth to pick 1 mol of peas at the rate of one pea per second, working 24 hours per day, 365 days per year?" I was wondering how you solve part b.

I'm doing a mix of fundamental questions and quantum questions. You can decide if you need more practice for the review of fundamentals test or if you are ready to move on to quantum problems!

There was an email sent out that said homework for Week 2 can cover both review topics and the quantum world. I would prefer to focus more on the review topics as there is a test coming up during discussions.

Do problems relevant to you at the time. Although we are currently studying quantum, doing problems from the fundamentals unit may help you study for the test. Definitely try and mix it up a bit though.

Can someone clarify the answer?

Which of the following statements about the electromagnetic spectrum is true? Explain your reasoning.
(a) X-rays travel faster than infrared radiation because they have
higher energy.
(b) The wavelength of visible radiation decreases as its color
changes from blue to green.
(c) The frequency of infrared radiation, which has a wavelength
of 1.0 3 10 3
nm, is half that of radio waves, which have a wavelength of 1.0 3 10 6
nm.

1A.15 In the ultraviolet spectrum of atomic hydrogen, a line is
observed at 102.6 nm. Determine the values of n for the initial and
final energy levels of the electron during the emission of energy
that leads to this spectral line.

What conversion would we use to turn the value into picometers?

1A.7 (a) The frequency of violet light is 7.1 3 10 14 Hz. What is
the wavelength (in nanometers) of violet light? (b) When an electron beam strikes a block of copper, x-rays with a frequency of
2.0 3 10 18 Hz are emitted. What is the wavelength (in picometers)
of these x-rays?

1A.9 A college student recently had a busy day. Each of the student’s activities on that day (reading, getting a dental x-ray, making popcorn in a microwave oven, and acquiring a suntan)
involved radiation from a different part of the electromagnetic
spectrum. Complete the following table and match each type of
radiation to the appropriate event

Microwaves fall between radio waves and infrared, so from lowest to highest energy it would be: microwave, visible light, ultraviolet radiation, x-ray, gamma ray

Since the Quantum Unit is more than a week long does it mean we just hand in five homework problems from that section every week until we are done with the unit?

Does it matter which subsection the homework problems we are doing are from as long as they are within the quantum mechanics section (like 1A v. 1B v. 1D etc.)?

Doing the fundamentals problems for homework 2 would probably be the best preparation for the test since quantum is not on it.

Week 3 homework is only on Quantum Mechanics; the only reason Prof Lavelle allowed us to use the fundamentals for week 2 homework is because he was giving us the option to gain more practice on fundamentals before the test.

For week 3 we should only be submitting problems from the quantum section. We were allowed to submit fundamentals problems for week 2 because so many students were still preparing for the test, and he didn't want us to have to confuse ourselves with new material before it.

A picometer is 1x10^-12 meters so after you divide the constant (2.998x10^8) by the x-ray's frequency, you divide your answer (which is in meters) by 1x10^-12 to get your answer in picometers.

Week 2 homework could be quantum and fundamentals solely because we also had Test 1 that week, and Lavelle said doing fundamentals problems for our homework would help us for the test, but because we learned some quantum in class, it was okay to do those problems as well.

Week 2 homework can be on the fundamentals or quantum world since lectures are on QW but the test during W2 is on the fundamentals. The Week 3 homework must be on the QW though.

For part a what equation can be used to solve for wavelength?

The velocity of an electron that is emitted from a
metallic surface by a photon is 3.6x10^3 kms
(a) What is
the wavelength of the ejected electron? (b) No electrons are
emitted from the surface of the metal until the frequency of
the radiation reaches 2.50 3 1016 Hz. How much energy is
required to remove the electron from the metal surface?
(c) What is the wavelength of the radiation that caused photoejection of the electron? (d) What kind of electromagnetic
radiation was used?
