... into the nucleus.  This means every atom is unstable , quite contrary to our observation! [ 1 ] Fig. 4-2: Rutherford's atom is inherently unstable 2 2. Atomic Spectra Rutherford's description of the atom could not be entirely ...

Chapter 7: Wave Mechanics and Wave Particle Duality


... of the quantum world is called wave mechanics .  He worked out the exact solutions of the wave equation for the hydrogen atom, and the results perfectly agreed with the known energy levels of these atoms, seemingly without any of the ...

Chapter 5: Matter and Waves


... was remarkably successful in explaining the origin of line spectra, and how it was able to explain the stability of the atom.  Yet, over time, it came to be laden with the following dr-awbacks. It worked only for hydrogen and hydrogen-like ...

Chapter 2: Max Planck's Revolutionary Hypothesis


... continuous.  Even by the time of Planck, the idea that matter could be ultimately broken down into tiny indivisible 'atoms' was only held by a few physicists. And so the quantum revolution began. Footnotes 1.  Natural Philosophy ...

... be explained if individual particles (or quanta ) of light were penetrating the metal and knocking electrons loose from atoms. According to Einstein's paper, increasing the inten-sity of the light increased the number of photons, while ...

Chapter 1: Introduction to Quantum Physics


... sense in comprehending the stars, galaxies and their behaviour, but they fail in the mi-croscopic world of molecules, atoms and sub-atomic particles. Quantum theory provides us with the rules and regulations of the miniature world .  These ...

Acoustics FAQ


... sometimes be as low as only a few millionths of a Pascal. Movements of the ear drum as small as the diameter of a hydrogen atom can be audible! Louder sounds are caused by greater variation in pressure - 1 Pascal, for example, will sound ...
