Agenda Evaluations Quantum Mechanics Particles as Probability Waves Bound States and Probability Energy Levels and Spectroscopy Quiz 7
Background image of page 2
New Topic: Quantum  Mechanics As our first topic, we’ll have to talk again about light, which we just said was an electromagnetic wave… but it turns out we can also think of light as being made of particles Photons!

Photons: Packets of Light Energy Photons are “particles” which actually make up a light wave Each photon has a given energy, the total energy of the wave is given by the sum of the energies of all the photons Color (frequency) of light is related to the photon energy: E = hf = energy of one photon with frequency f h = 6.626 x 10 -34 J·s is called Planck’s constant The intensity (brightness, which is related to total energy) of a light wave corresponds to the NUMBER of photons

Photons and the Double Slit:  Probability Waves In our double slit experiment, we found that constructive and destructive interference due to path length difference caused bright and dark spots

Photons and the Double Slit:  Probability Waves Now reduce the number of photons so that only one goes through the slit at a time. What happens? Each photon hits the screen at a seemingly
