SYNOPSIS
In this laboratory you will use a diffraction grating to perform spectroscopy of the visible light
wavelengths emitted by heated gases of hydrogen (H) and mercury (Hg). You will observe th

Light is mysterious. Newton thought that light was made up of particles the
corpuscular nature of light. However, for a long time that point of view was abandoned by many, notably Huygens, Euler, Fresnel, and oth

In this lecture we will develop the Schrodinger equation for quantum mechanics.
