Light absorption by materials modelled as a particle in a box.
You may change the mass or the length of the particle in the box.
You may use it to discuss:
- Light components
- Absorption lines and complementary colours
- The relationship between light absorption and energy levels
- Which molecular motions give rise to absorption in different parts of the spectrum
You can also check pencil and paper calculations.
