Solution: Which of the following statements is FALSE? A) Part of the Bohr model proposed that electrons in the hydrogen atom are located in "stationary states" or particular orbits around the nucleus. B) An orbital is the volume in which we are most likely to find an electron. C) The Heisenberg uncertainty principle implies that we can never know both the exact location and speed of an electron. D) The emission spectrum of a particular element is always the same and can be used to identify that element. E) Light has properties of both waves and particles, but electrons never behave like waves.

Problem

Which of the following statements is FALSE? 

A) Part of the Bohr model proposed that electrons in the hydrogen atom are located in "stationary states" or particular orbits around the nucleus. 

B) An orbital is the volume in which we are most likely to find an electron. 

C) The Heisenberg uncertainty principle implies that we can never know both the exact location and speed of an electron. 

D) The emission spectrum of a particular element is always the same and can be used to identify that element. 

E) Light has properties of both waves and particles, but electrons never behave like waves.

Solution

We are asked which statement is false. 

Analyze each statement:

A) Part of the Bohr model proposed that electrons in the hydrogen atom are located in "stationary states" or particular orbits around the nucleus.
