Additional Problem Set 4 The Wave Model of the Atom 1) In 1-2 sentences, explain how the quantization of electron position and energy is a consequence of the wave nature of electrons. If electrons behave like waves with nodes , then there will necessarily be points where the wave and therefore the electron density equals zero. If electrons behave like waves with certain boundaries, then a set amount of energy must be absorbed to convert one wave into another. 2) In this chapter we learn that both light and matter behave like both particles and waves. a) Match the experiment with the result that it supports: i) Electron diffraction (demonstrates the wave nature of electrons) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electron_diffr action) ii) Millikan’s oil drop experiment (demonstrates the particle nature of electrons) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oil- drop_experiment) iii) Photoelectric effect (demonstrates the particle nature of light) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photoelectric_ effect) iv) double slit experiment (demonstrates the wave nature of light) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double- slit_experiment) particle nature of electrons
