Ch 301 Lecture Notes Light/Energy Black body radiator- hypothetical -“failure of classical mechanics” -classical mechanics predicted infinite power (false) -photoelectric effect, requires minimum energy/frequency (called work function/threshold). Quantum mechanics predict that there is a minimum amount of energy to eject electrons Quantization -classical mechanics says electrons can have any value at all for potential energy / distance from nucleus Atomic Structure -Gold foil experiment- proved that if you bombarded a thin piece of gold foil the x-rays would be scattered infer the existence of a nucleus -Milliken oil drop experiment Schrodinger Equation
