2.     When an electric stove element is hot enough, it gives off a dull red glow. When it cools to the point that it longer glows, it will
A)     emit shorter wavelength radiation.
B)     emit the same wavelength as before, but with less energy.
C)     emit longer wavelength radiation.
D)     stop emitting radiation altogether.

3.     You are able to see non-luminous objects because light has undergone
A)     diffuse reflection.
B)     refraction.
C)     constructive interference.
D)     a change in speed.

4.     Interference can be most easily explained in terms of the
A)     ray model of light.

B)     was constant for all objects.
C)     varied greatly from one experiment to the next.
D)     appeared to come in multiples of certain fixed amounts.

6.     The photoelectric effect could not be adequately explained with a wave model of light because

7.     The sun appears reddish as it sets because
A)     the sun emits more radiation at longer wavelengths at sunset.
B)     more of the shorter, bluer wavelengths have been scattered away.
C)     the Doppler shift lowers the frequency as a given spot on the earth rotates away from the sun.
D)     more of the longer, redder wavelengths are scattered by the atmosphere.

A)     virtual.
B)     real.
C)     a result of diffuse reflection.
D)     smaller than the object.

C)     emit characteristic frequencies of light.
D)     absorb, rather than emit light.

14.     Niels Bohr's model of the hydrogen atom
A)     was controversial because it contradicted accepted principles of physics.
B)     held that electrons existed in allowed orbits and nowhere else.
C)     accounted for the observed spectrum in hydrogen.
