Chemistry (Electrons in Atoms)

True or False.
1)Electrons give off light as they drop to lower energy levels.
2)Electrons travel around the nucleus as waves.
3)A photon of low frequency light has more energy than a photon of high frequency light.
4)Orbitals with equal energy levels each contain one electron before any of them contain a second electron.
5)In the ground state, an electron occupies the orbital with the lowest energy that is not occupied.
6) Electrons change energy levels through a quantum leap.
well, 3 is clearly false. 2 depends on what one means by "travel around" means. I would say it is false, but some first year chem teachers would say it is sort of true. 1 depends on "light". Gives off energy is true, so that one depends on what one believes to be light. Most of it is not visible light.
