What we’d like to know1. Does the Schrödinger equation reproduce Bohr’s theory from 1913?Only certain allowed electron orbits?Quantized radius for each orbit?Quantized angular momentum?d Quantized energy states?Discrete emission lines?2. What really is going on during the light emission process inside an atom?3. What is the electronic structure of other atoms in the periodic table?2
What we’ve learned so farCommonly observed objectsParticle Wave BoxBoxTightly confined objects with small mass ?? 3No compelling reason to expect such objects to fit into these two boxes!
