EM Waves 01a

OPENING QUESTION:

Please work with your group to sketch out a brief suggestion for how a photon of light is created <thank you>

═══════════════════════════

LEARNING TARGET: I will be able to model how photons are created during today's class.

WORDS O' THE DAY:

  • photon (a wave AND a particle of light)
  • electromagnetic waves
  • energy levels
  • excited (electron) = ("electrons 'jolted' into a higher energy level")
  • ground state (electron) = ("electrons existing on the lowest energy level")

WORK O' THE DAY:

 

Now let's take a gander at THIS:

 

Basic Photon Activity

Hmmm....
