what s in the box
What’s in the box?

or is all the mass

concentrated in a dense

“ball-bearing”?

Is all the mass spread

throughout as in a box

figure it out without opening or shaking
Figure it out without opening (or shaking)

Shoot bullets randomly through the box. If it

is filled with marshmallows, all the bullets will go straight through without (much) deflection

Figure it out without opening (or shaking)

If it contains a ball-bearing most the bullets will go straight through without deflection---but not all

Occasionally, a bullet will collide nearly head-on to the ball-bearing and be deflectedby a large angle

rutherford used a ray bullets to distinguish between the plum pudding planetary models
Rutherford used a-ray “bullets” to distinguish between the plum-pudding & planetary models

Not to scale!!!

If it were to scale,

the nucleus would

be too small to see

Even though it has more than 99.9% of the atom’s mass

Atom

classical theory had trouble with rutherford s atom
Classical theory had trouble with Rutherford’s atom

Orbiting electrons are accelerating

Accelerating electrons should radiate light

According to Maxwell’s

theory, a Rutherford

atom would only survive

for only about 10-12 secs

other peculiar discoveries

sola

Other peculiar discoveries:

Solar light spectrum:

Fraunhofer discovered that some wavelengths are

missing from the sun’s black-body spectrum

other discoveries
Other discoveries…

Low pressure gasses, when heated,

do not radiate black-body-like spectra;

instead they radiate only a few specific colors

bright colors from hydrogen match the missing colors in sunlight
bright colors from hydrogen match the missing colors in sunlight

bohr s idea
Bohr’s idea

“Allowed”

orbits

what makes bohr s allowed energy levels allowed
What makes Bohr’s allowed energy levels allowed?

Recall what happens when we force

waves into confined spaces:

confined waves
Confined waves

Only waves with wavelengths that just fit in survive

(all others cancel themselves out)

electrons in atoms are confined matter waves ala debroglie
Electrons in atoms are confined matter waves ala deBroglie

However, if the circumference is exactly an

integer number of wavelengths, successive

turns will interfere constructively

This wave, as it goes around, will interfere

with itself destructively and cancel itself out

Bohr’s allowed energy states correspond to those

with orbits that are integer numbers of wavelengths

quantum mechanics
Quantum Mechanics

Erwin Schrodinger

Schrodinger’s equation

matter waves are probability waves
Matter waves are “probability” waves

Probability to detect the

electron at some place

is y2 at that spot

y

Electrons will never be detected here

Electrons are most likely

to be detected here

or here
