Describe briefly why the study of electromagnetic radiation bas been important to our understanding of the arrangement of electrons in atoms

Interpretation Introduction


The importance of the study of electromagnetic radiation in the understanding of arrangement of electrons in atoms is to be described.

Concept introduction:

The energy states of atoms are described by electromagnetic radiation theory. The electrons are emitted from a metal surface whenever the incident light falls on it. This emission is explained by an effect known as photoelectric effect.

To determine: The reason how the study of electromagnetic radiation has been important to our understanding of the arrangement of electrons in atoms.


The inside chemistry of atoms is greatly explained by the experiment of electromagnetic radiations. This experiment helps in tracking what’s happening inside the atom. By knowing the amount of energy required by the electrons, its distance from the nucleus can be calculated. Hence, the spatial arrangement of electrons can be explained by electromagnetic radiations.

When sample is heated, electrons present in the atoms gets excited due to which electromagnetic radiations are released in the form of light. These radiations when passes through the prism they dispersed into light of various radiations. These radiations are collected on a photographic film called spectrum...
