1.) If the spacing between two electronic energy levels in atom A is larger than in atom B, then the wavelength of the light emitted by atom B will be longer.
2.) If the spacing between two electronic energy levels in atom A is smaller than in atom B, then fewer photons will be emitted by atom B.
Would these statements be true or false? Also, can someone explain why please, thanks!

  1. larger energy difference means photon of higher energy which is higher frequency which is SHORTER wavelength
    wavelength = c T = c/f
    and energy = h f

    2. is just nonsense. The energy of individual photons is the energy change between levels. It has noting to do with number of photons.

  2. HEY - looking at all your questions, you better read the chapter or Google atomic spectra and photons
