Unformatted text preview: electron orbits in an atom are standing wave patterns Schrodinger-writes the analogous equation in quantum mechanics to F=ma or Maxwell's equation o Born- solution to Schrodinger's equation tell you the probability of finding the electron Bohm- quantum mechanics has hidden variables Pauli- only 2 electrons can occupy one energy level .0 Electrons have 'spin' properties: positive and negative o Explains why periodic table must look the way it does Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle-there are pairs of matched quantities where if you know the value of one you can't know the value of the other I Inherent uncertainty built into the nature of reality Ex: position and momentum; energy and time Wave-particle duality: everything has qualities of both waves and particles Photons Electrons Protons Neutrons etc etc...
