Quantum Mechanics—Window To Atomic Structure Brian Hults and Partner Joe Rienzi 09/28/2009 Section G2 I commit to uphold the ideals of honor and integrity by refusing to betray the trust bestowed upon me as a member of the Georgia Tech community. Abstract Different elements and compounds were observed with a spectroscope to acquire evidence to support the existence of Quantum Mechanics. Several gases were observed first as an electric

current passed through them to determine their unique emission lines. Other compounds were also burned to see what colors would be emitted in the flames. Introduction Quantum Mechanics is a theory that describes the quantum nature of matter and the many properties of the resulting wave-particle duality. This experiment was performed to observe the evidence for Quantum Mechanics in the form of line spectra emissions from various gases and burned compounds. These results were used to verify Bohr’s and Schrodinger’s models for electron energy levels and wavelengths of visible light emitted as spectrum lines. In the process of the experiment the Rydberg constant for the hydrogen atom was also measured as well as the
