### Early Quantum Mechanics

Chapter 27

Wein’s Law
• Treat’s light solely as a wave
• The hotter the object, the shorter the peak wavelength
• Sun (~6000 K) emits in blue and UV
• A 3000 K object emits in IR

2.90 X 10-3 mK = lpeakT

Wein’s Law: Ex 1

Estimate the temperature of the sun. The Suns light peak at about 500 nm (blue)

500 nm = 500 X 10-9 m

T = 2.90 X 10-3 mK

lpeak

T = 2.90 X 10-3 mK = 6000 K

500 X 10-9 m

Wein’s Law: Ex 2

Suppose a star has a surface temperature of about 3500 K. Estimate the wavelength of light produced.

2.90 X 10-3 mK = lpeakT

l peak = 2.90 X 10-3 mK

T

l peak = 2.90 X 10-3 mK = 8.29 X 10-7 m = 830 nm

3500 K

Planck’s Quantum Hypothesis
• Energy of any atomic or molecular vibration is a whole number
• Photon – the light particle
• Photons emitted come in “packets”
• E = hf
• h = 6.626 X 10-34 J s (Planck’s constant)
Photons: Ex 1

Calculate the energy of a photon of wavelength 600 nm.

600 nm X 1 X 10-9m = 6 X10-7 m

1 nm

c = lf

f = c/l = (3X108 m/s)/(6 X10-7 m) = 5 X 1014 s-1

E = hf

E = (6.626 X 10-34 J s)(5 X 1014 s-1) = 3.3 X 10-19 J

Photons: Ex 1a

Convert your answer from the previous problem to electron Volts (1 eV = 1.6 X 10-19 J)

Photons: Ex 2

Calculate the energy of a photon of wavelength 450 nm (blue light).

Photons: Ex 2a

Convert your answer from the previous problem to electron Volts (1 eV = 1.6 X 10-19 J)

Photons: Ex 3

Estimate the number of photons emitted by a 100 Watt lightbulb per second. Assume each photon has a wavelength of 500 nm.

500 nm X 1 X 10-9m = 5 X10-7 m

1 nm

c = lf

f = c/l = (3X108 m/s)/(5 X10-7 m) = 6 X 1014 s-1

100 Watts = 100 J/s (we are looking at 1 second)

E = nhf

n = E/hf

n = 100 J

(6.626 X 10-34 J s)(6 X 1014 s-1)

n = 2.5 X 1020

Photoelectric Effect (Einstein)
• When light shines on a metal, electrons are emitted
• Can detect a current from the electrons
• Used in light meter, scanners, digital cameras (photodiodes rather than tubes)

Three Key Points

• Below a certain frequency, no electrons are emitted
• Greater intensity light produces more electrons
• Greater Frequency light produces no more electrons, but the come off with greater speed

More intensity

• More photons
• More electrons ejected with same KE

Greater Frequency

• No more electrons ejected
• Electrons come off with greater speed (KE)
hf = KE + W

hf = energy of the photon

KE = Maximum KE of the emitted electron

W = Work function to eject electron

hf = KE + W: Ex 1

What is the maximum kinetic energy of an electron emitted from a sodium atom whose work function (Wo) is 2.28 eV when illuminated with 410 nm light?

410 nm = 410 X 10-9 m or 4.10 X 10-7 m

2.28 eV X 1.60 X 10-19J = 3.65 X 10-19 J

1 eV

c = lf

f = c/l

f = c/(4.10 X 10-7 m) = 7.32 X 1014 s-1

hf = KE + W

KE = hf – W

KE = (6.626 X 10-34 J s)(7.32 X 1014 s-1) - 3.65 X 10-19 J

KE = 1.20 X 10-19 J or 0.75 eV

hf = KE + W: Ex 2

4.08 eV X 1.60 X 10-19J = 6.53 X 10-19 J

1 eV

hf = KE + W

hf = 0 + W (looking for bare minimum)

c = lf

f = c/l

hf = W

hc = W

l

l = hc = (6.626 X 10-34 J s)(3.0 X 108 m/s)

W 6.53 X 10-19 J

l = 3.04 X 10-7 m = 304 nm (UV)

Photon/Matter Interactions
• Electron excitation (photon disappears)
• Ionization/photoelectric effect (photon disappears)
• Scattering by nucleus or electron
• Pair production (photon disappears)

Electron Excitation

• Photon is absorbed (disappears)
• Electron jumps to an excited state
• Ionization/Photoelectric Effect
• Photon is absorbed (disappears)
• Electron is propelled out of the atom

Pair Production

• Photon closely approaches a nucleus
• Photon disappears
• An electron and positron are created.
• Scattering
• Photon collides with a nucleus or electron
• Photon loses some energy
• Speed does not change, but the wavelength increases
3. Scattering: Compton Effect
• Electrons and nuclie can scatter photons
• Scattered photon is at a lower frequency than incident photon
• Some of the energy is transferred to the electron or nucleus

l’ = l + h (1 – cos q)

moc

l’ = wavelength of scattered photon

l = wavelength of incident photon

mo = rest mass of particle

q = angle of incidence

Compton Effect: Ex 1

l’ = 140 X10-9m + (6.626 X 10-34 J s)(1 – cos0)

(9.11 X 10-31 kg)(3 X 108m/s)

l’ = 140 X10-9m + 0

l’ = 140 nm

Compton Effect: Ex 2

What will be the wavelength of the X-rays scattered at 90o?

l’ = l + h (1 – cos q)

moc

l’ = 140 X10-9m + (6.626 X 10-34 J s)(1 – cos 90)

(9.11 X 10-31 kg)(3 X 108m/s)

l’ = 140 X10-9m + 2.4 X 10-12 m

l’ = 142 nm

Compton Effect: Ex 3

What will be the wavelength of the X-rays scattered at 180o?

l’ = l + h (1 – cos q)

moc

l’ = 140 X10-9m + (6.626 X 10-34 J s)(1 – cos 180)

(9.11 X 10-31 kg)(3 X 108m/s)

l’ = 140 X10-9m + 4.8 X 10-12 m

l’ = 145 nm (straight back)

4. Pair Production
• Photon Disappears
• e- and e+ are produced
• They have opposite direction (law of conservation of momentum)
• When e- and e+ collide they annihilate each other  a new photon appears
Principle of Complimentarity
• Neils Bohr
• Any experiment can only observe light’s wave or particle properties, not both
• Different “faces” that light shows
The Discovery of the Electron (Thomson)
• Cathode Ray Tube
• Charged particles produced (affected by magnetic field)

Concluded that atom must have positive and negative parts

• Electron – negative part of the atom
• Only knew the e/m ratio
• Plum Pudding Model
Charge and Mass of the Electron (Millikan)
• Oil drop experiment
• Determines charge on electron (uses electric field to counteract gravity)
• Quantized
• e = 1.602 X 10-19 C
• m = 9.11 X 10-31 kg
The Nucleus (Rutherford)
• Gold Foil Experiment
• Discovers nucleus (disproves Plum Pudding Model)
• Planetary Model
Wave Nature of Matter
• Everything has both wave and particle properties
• DeBroglie Wavelength
