Unformatted text preview: electron orbits in an atom are standing wave patterns Schrodingerwrites 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 Principlethere 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 Waveparticle duality: everything has qualities of both waves and particles Photons Electrons Protons Neutrons etc etc...
