ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION

ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION

-

Also known as radiant heat or radiant energy


-

One of the ways by which energy travels through space




-

Consists of perpendicular electric and magnetic fields


Examples

heat energy in microwaves

light from the sun

X
-
ray

radio waves

Three Characteristics of Waves


Wavelength (
λ
)


-

Distance for a wave to go through a complete cycle

(distance between two consecutive peaks or troughs in a wave)


Frequency (
ν
)

-

The number of waves (cycles) per second that pass

a given point in space


Speed (c)

-

All waves travel at the speed of light in vacuum (3.00 x 10
8

m/s)

ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION

An FM radio station broadcasts at 90.1 MHz. Calculate the

wavelength of the corresponding radio waves

ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION

Albert Einstein proposed that



-

Electromagnetic radiation is quantized


-

Electromagnetic radiation can be viewed as a stream of

‘tiny particles’ called
photons





h = Planck’s constant (6.626 x 10

THE ATOMIC SPECTRUM

Transmission

-

Electromagnetic radiation (EM) passes through matter

without interaction


Absorption

-

An atom (or ion or molecule) absorbs EM and

moves to a higher energy state (excited)


Emission

-

An atom (or ion or molecule) releases energy and

moves to a lower energy state

Spectrophotometry

-

The use of EM to measure chemical concentrations


Spectrophotometer


-

Used to measure light transmission


Radiant Power (P)

-

Energy per second per unit area of a beam of light

-

Decreases when light transmits through a sample

(due to absorption of light by the sample)

ABSORPTION OF LIGHT

Beers Law


-

Absorbance is proportional to the concentration of
light absorbing molecules in the sample



-

Absorbance is proportional to the pathlength of the
sample through which light travels



-

More intense color implies greater absorbance
