# Quantum Theory Homework Problems Part 2 1.

The radioactive Co-60 isotope is used in nuclear medicine to treat certain types of cancer. Calculate the wavelength and frequency of an emitted gamma particle having the energy of 1.29 x 10 11 J/mol. (mol: mole, which equals 6.022 x 10 23 particles) 2. Only a fraction of the electrical energy supplied to a tungsten light bulb is converted to visible light. The rest of the energy shows up as infrared radiation (that is heat). A 75-W light bulb converts 15.0 percent of the energy supplied to it into visible light (assume the wavelength to be 550 nm). How many photons are emitted by the light bulb per second? (1 W = 1 J/s) 3. When a compound containing cesium ion is heated in a Bunsen burner flame, photons with an energy of 4.30 x 10 -19 J are emitted. What color is the cesium flame? 4. An electron in a certain atom is in the n = 2 quantum level. List the possible values of l and ml that it can have. 5. An electron in an atom is in the n = 3 quantum level. List the possible vaues of l and ml that it can have. 6. Give the values of all the possible quantum numbers associated with the following orbitals: (a) 2p, (b) 3s, (c) 5d. 7. Give the values of all the possible quantum numbers associated with the following orbitals: (a) 4p, (b) 3d. 8. Discuss the similarities and differences between a 1s and 2s orbital. 9. What is the difference between a 2px and 2py orbital? 10. List all of the possible subshells and orbitals associated with the principle quantum number n , if n = 6. 11. Indicate which of the following sets of quantum numbers in an atom are unacceptable and explain why: (a) (1, 0, ½, ½) (b) (3, 0, 0, +½) (c) (2, 2, 1, +½) (d) (4, 3, -2, +½) (e) (3, 2, 1, 1)
