P3-54: ENERGY LEVELS - BALLS AND LADDER

Additional Info

  • ID Code: p3-54
  • Purpose: Model energy levels in atomic orbits.
  • Description: The steps of the ladder represent energy levels or atomic orbitals. The ball represents an electron. The light source provides a photon of energy. With a red filter the ball jumps one step; with the blue filter the electron jumps two or three steps up the ladder. Radiation with the wrong light, say green light, leaves the ball in its ground state (on the floor), because that energy would leave the ball between energy levels.
