Why Things Have Color InfoGo to Activity
This tutorial puts the particle- in-a-box model of quantum mechanics in a context of light absorption by materials. It ties together simple ideas such as the color of material being the complement of that absorbed, with more sophisticated ideas relating to which molecular motions give rise to absorption in different parts of the spectrum.
|Resource Type||Simulation These interactive simulations help to visualize difficult chemistry concepts and phenomena. Teachers can use these as demonstrations in lecture or supplements to homework. Students can also use the tools to test and improve their own understanding.|
