1 The exam last night was a) Way too easy b) Too easy c) Just right d) Too hard e) Way too hard f) Where is the f) button. Part 2: Quantum* Mechanics *We say something is quantized if it can occur only in certain discrete amounts. Courtesy of IBM Quantum Mechanics is the greatest intellectual accomplishment of human race. - Carl Wieman, Nobel Laureate in Physics 2001 1. Background and review. 2. Things that classical physics can’t understand 3. Photoelectric effect and how it shows light comes in quantum units of energy. When is a wave not a wave? (when it is a particle!) 4. de Broglie idea- wave-particle duality of electrons etc. When is a particle not a particle? ( when it’s a wave ) . 5. Bohr model of the atom. Where it works. Why it is wrong. 6. Schrodinger Equation and quantum waves. What they are, how to use. Applications: 7. Atomic spectra- quantized energy of electrons in atoms. Part 2 of this course: Today: Overview of things classical physics can’t explain Quantized bits.
