Chapter 11 Worksheet- Electromagnetic Radiation, Bohr Model, Quantum Mechanics
For this electromagnetic radiation and atomic structure worksheet, students answer thirteen questions about topics such as wavelength, frequency and the electromagnetic spectrum. They also answer questions about the location of electrons using the Bohr model of the atom and the quantum mechanical model of the atom.
Students explore the nature of electromagnetic spectrum through a series of experiments. In this physics lesson, students determine how light behaves under certain circumstances. They explain how humans perceive colors.
Electromagnetic Radiation and Bohr Atom
In this chemistry worksheet, students study the Bohr atomic model and calculate the wavelength and frequency of given electromagnetic radiation. They answer 9 problems and short answer questions.
The Electromagnetic Radiation (Light ~ the Supreme Informant!)
This short slide show applies the electromagnetic spectrum to astronomy. First, electromagnetic radiation is introduced to viewers. Wavelength is defined and its unit of measurement explained. Finally, aspiring astronomers find that the electromagnetic spectra given off by a star can provide its composition, temperature, and more!
Detectable Civilizations in our Galaxy 2
The idea of whether or not communication from other planets can be transmitted and received is discussed in this presentation. The various issues such as relative stages of development, the ability to receive a transmission, and whether any possible signal has been sent in our direction are discussed.
Typical Numeric Questions for Physics I - Photoelectric Effect
As the title implies, here is a collection of typical photoelectric effect problems that physics learners need to be able to solve. They determine the amount of energy of a photon, the photons produced per second, the frequency required for work functions, and more. There are multiple choices to choose from for the answers, which will help beginning photoelectric physicists make sure they are on the right wavelength!
The Absorption of Solar Energy
Two sequential parts to this instructional activity introduce your class to the electromagnetic spectrum, the ability to absorb radiant energy, and the pigments in leaves that are responsible for collecting sunlight to be used in the photosynthetic process. Each part includes background reading, a hands-on inquiry activity, and critical thinking questions to answer. If you have been teaching science for a while, the activities will be familiar to you, but the detailed explanations and student resources are a tremendous bonus!
Electromagnetic Energy and Its Spectrum
Your older elementary students investigate electromagnetic energy and the electromagnetic spectrum. They will observe 7 items represented in the electromagnetic spectrum and make a poster of all the things the items have in common. After observing a box of water and creating waves in the water to observe the relationship between energy and wavelength, they observe a light shining on a prism and record their observations.
Star Light, Star Bright
Four modules are a part of this stellar lesson plan. Space scientists view the electromagnetic spectrum, they generate waves on a computer screen in order to measure frequency and wavelength, discover how light is related to temperature, and finally relate their learning to the temperature of stars. Much of this lesson is taught via an interactive website. There is so much terrific material here that you could spend an entire week on this topic!
Students engage in a lesson which includes flame tests and the construction of a simple diffraction spectrograph with which to measure sodium ion emissions. They use the Bragg equation to compute the wavelength of the line spectra produced.
Conservation of Energy
In this energy worksheet, learners read about the Law of Conservation of Energy and compare the 6 forms of energy. Then students complete 20 matching, 2 short answer, and 6 word problems.
Here Comes the Heat: Infrared Spectroscopy
Students explore parts of the electromagnetic spectrum by conducting various experiments using prisms and thermometers. Students imagine what it would be like to see in infrared, and explore radiation as a means of determining planetary temperatures.
Students explore the infrared radiation and the part of the spectrum that is not always visible. In this electromagnetic lesson students complete a lab activity on the different wavelengths.
Students explore energy by conducing a science experiment in class. In this electricity instructional activity, students identify the parts of an electrical generator and explain how energy is created. Students utilize magnetic materials and copper wires to create an electric generator.
Learners define electromagnetic radiation, list major categories and uses of electromagnetic waves, identify potential health risks with electromagnetic waves, and demonstrate understanding of Plank's constant by solving quantitative equations on wavelength, frequency, and energy.
Students explain how electricity is transferred from source to load without actual wires connecting the two. In this physics lesson plan, students explore how wireless electricity was discovered. They cite practical applications of this technology.
Worksheet 4-1 Atomic Spectra
In this atomic spectra worksheet, students answer eighteen questions about wavelengths of light, the emission spectrum, energy of photons, the frequency of electromagnetic radiation and electrons in the excited state.
Luminous Efficacy (Efficiency)
Students examine the basics of luminous efficacy and why it is used. In this light source lesson students test energy efficiency and the luminous efficiency for babies.
Making Waves With the Electromagnetic Spectrum
Your high schoolers examine various types of electromagnetic waves and create a chart of the spectrum. They watch a video segment and use an interactive activity that explains the range of the spectrum and common sources of electromagnetic waves.
The Electromagnetic Spectrum
Ninth graders complete several demonstrations and investigations related to the different regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. They develop a flip-book regarding the electromagnetic spectrum to document their achievement.
