Question description

Has to be done well. All of the items tagged bellow are the topics that will be covered on the test. Please let me know if you have any questions bellow I am willing to answer.

Name _________________________________ I.D. Number _______________________ Unit 6 Evaluation Physics 2 (SCIH 036 058) This evaluation will cover the lessons in this unit. It is open book, meaning you can use your textbook, syllabus, and other course materials. To submit the evaluation, follow the directions provided. When you feel you are adequately prepared, complete this Unit Evaluation. It is important that you do your own work. If you have difficulty with particular sections, you may use your textbook and course materials for help in answering the questions. You may also use your calculator on this evaluation. After you have completed this evaluation, you will submit it for grading. Multiple Choice Choose the answer that best completes the statement or answers the question. ____ 1. Which statement best fits the current model of the atom? a. Electrons exist in discrete orbits around the nucleus (like the paths of planets around the sun). b. The nucleus is stable but the electron cloud is unstable. c. Electrons exist at discrete energy levels and in regions of probability around the nucleus. d. The nucleus determines the physical and chemical properties of the atom. ____ 2. The energy of a photon is directly proportional to its a. wavelength. b. frequency. c. size. d. speed. ____ 3.

Super fast turn around time. Very impressed and will use Studypool again if I need a quick job. Communication was a bit tough but not unbearable.
