Freeman and Company Example: 11/27/11 3 Electrons in an electron beam have a de Broglie wavelength of 242 picometers. What is the kinetic energy in eV? h= 6.63 x 10 -34 Js m=9.1x10 -31 kg Double-slit Interference 11/27/11 4

Freeman and Company Quantum View 11/27/11 6 Quantum View In quantum regime: *all objects, including light & electrons, can exhibit interference *all objects, including light & electrons, carry energy in discrete amounts. These discrete “parcels” are called quanta. 11/27/11 7 Example 28.5 from textbook 11/27/11 8 Wave Function ...motion of a particle wave is described by a wave function .....

Freeman and Company 11/27/11 9 Wave Function 11/27/11 10 Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle Minimum uncertainty: Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle: 11/27/11 11 Example ! x ! p = h 2 " Key Idea: Assume that an electron is moving along an x axis and that you measure its speed to be 2.05x10-6 m/s, which can be known with a precision of 0.50%. What is the minimum uncertainty with which you can simultaneously measure the position of the electron along the x axis? 100 atomic diameters. given electrons speed, no need to pin down an electrons position to any greater precision. 11/27/11 12 Tunneling 2008 by W.H.
