  1. the effect that occurs when a block of graphite is placed in the path of a narrow beam of xrays, and the x-rays scatter in such a way that, at any angle of scattering, they are most intense at two wavelengths: the incident wavelength and a longer wavelength that increases as the scaterring angle increases
  2. The ___ quantum number (denoted ms) differentiates the two electrons in the same orientation within the same orbital within the same energy level.
  3. term signifying that all the electrons within any atom are restricted to specific energy states
  4. term for the specific frequencies of radiation emitted by elements or compounds in gaseous form, which increase in intensity as a function of temperature
  5. Max Planck's theory that radiation is emitted in discrete amounts when an electrically charged body oscillates
  6. term for the higher energy state of an electron
  7. term for a certain potential at which the current in a collector ceases
  8. Schrodinger's model which related an electron's energy state to a cyclical standing wave
  9. term for the production of visible light by a heated body

  28. Bohr claimed that the jumps of the hydrogen electron are esentially ____.
  29. Heisenberg's principle which states that we know either an electron's position or momentum, but not both at the same time
