    WS: Emission Spectra

    Using an energy-level diagram of mercury, students determine the energy released (in eV) for specific electron transitions, as well as the wavelength of the emitted photon (in nm).

    Students then use this data to draw/color both emission and absorption spectra.

    Rutherford Penny Lab

    The Rutherford Penny lab is designed to give the students hands-on experience in making indirect measurements. They will determine the diameter of a penny be statistical analysis.

    A Model for the Quantum Concept

    Use only post-1982 pennies, the US Mint changed the mass in 1982. This lab is designed to help understand the idea of quantizing a measurement, in this case mass. I use 13 flim canisters filled with various amounts of pennies. By looking at the increasing masses, the students should realize that the amounts go up by 2.5 grams or a multiple of them.
