2 This Presentation is Brought to YOU by Quantum Theory, With Atomic and Nuclear Physics.

3 History of Atomic Models (I) 1. Single indivisible particle, “atomos” Greek. Democritus(460-370 BC) 2. Plum Pudding Model J.J. Thomson(1856-1940), England, used his CRT to discover the electron.

4 Some Early Apparatus Thomson’s CRT (photo) Schematic Drawing Question: What does CRT stand for? Cathode Ray Tube

5 Robert Millikan (1868-1953) and his Oil-Drop Experiment in 1909. Proved that the elementary unit of charge, 1.6x10 -19 C only occurred in certain amounts (Quantized).

6 History of Atomic Models (II) 3. Planetary Model - imagine the solar system with the Sun as the nucleus and the planets as the electrons. Ernest Rutherford(1871-1937), England, Gold-foil Experiment. Results: (1) most of the atom is empty space (2) almost all the mass is in the nucleus.

7 The Rutherford Scattering(Gold Foil) Experiment

8 Contributors to the Photoelectric Effect and Quantum Theory Heinrich Hertz 1857-1894 Max Planck 1858-1947 Albert Einstein 1879-1955 LNK2LRN

9 The Photoelectric Effect Light is sent to a metal surface. If the frequency of the light is high enough, the light kicks electrons off the surface of the metal. Emitter is connected to the negative terminal of a battery. Collector is attached to the positive terminal. Result: The Photocell.  Discovered for the first time by Max Planck and Heinrich Hertz, Germany, in the late 1800’s. Carbon Arc Light

10 Photoelectric effect

11 Einstein put forward a theory: Light energy is quantized. Light consists of a stream of particles called photons. The energy of each photon ( E ) depends on the frequency ( f ) of the light.

12 Frequency increasing


14 The emission of electrons from a material that is bombarded with radiation in the form of light. E photon = hf with h = 6.6 x 10 -34 J ·s LNK2LRN The Explanation of the Photoelectric Effect

15 Problem #1. Calculate the energy of a photon of light having a frequency of 2.5x10 15 Hz. (Show your work.) Given: f = 2.5x10 15 Hz We know Planck’s Constant. h = 6.6x10 -34 Js E = ___________ Equation: E = hf Solution: E = 6.6x10 -34 Js · 2.5x10 15 Hz E = 1.7x10 -18 J

16 All parts of the Electromagnetic Spectrum move at the same speed through a vacuum: 3.0 x 10 8 m/s. We call this the speed of light and assign it the letter, c. But all possess the 5 properties of waves, so they must obey the wave equation, c = f·λ. The energy is carried by mass-less photons, and computed with the equation, E = hf. ( h = 6.6 x 10 -34 Js )

17 Summary of the Equations for Photoelectric Effect and Quantum Theory E = h·f Energy of a photon of light h = 6.6 x 10 -34 J ·s c = f · Wave equation for light, c = 3.0 x 10 8 m/s W o = h · f o Work function, with f o = threshold frequency KE max = q·V o Maximum kinetic energy of photoelectrons based on stopping potential, V o KE max = E - W o Maximum kinetic energy of photoelectrons based on photon energy and work function E = mc 2 Einstein’s equation for conversion of matter to energy

18 Combine these three equations to get a single equation for the wavelength of a matter particle. E = mc 2 c = f · E = h·f The equation is: = h / (mv) “If waves (light) can act like particles, why can’t particles act like waves”. Prince Louis Victor deBroglie (1892-1987), France.

19 Matching Exercise. Democritus J. Thomson Ernest Rutherford Robert Millikan Max Planck Heinrich Hertz Albert Einstein Found charge on electron with Oil-drop experiment Unit of frequency named after him Made the first CRT Gave us the equation E = mc 2 Atom is single indivisible particle Planetary atomic model His constant is 6.6x10 -34 Js

20 Can you then come-up with the equation for the momentum of a photon? Remember, if particles can act like waves, why can’t waves act like particles? The equation is: p = h / Useful constants: 1 eV = 1.6 x 10 -19 J mass of electron = 9.11 x 10 -31 kg mass of proton = 1.67 x 10 -27 kg charge on the electron = -1.6 x 10 -19 C charge on the proton = 1.6 x 10 -19 C

21 Problem #2. Calculate the threshold frequency of a metal having a work function of 6.4 eV. (Show your work.) Given: W o = 6.4 eV We know Planck’s Constant. h = 6.6x10 -34 Js f o = ___________ Equation: W o = hf o Solution: f o = W o / h = ( 6.4 eV x 1.6 x 10 -19 J / 1 eV) / 6.6x10 -34 Js f o = 1.6x10 15 Hz

22 Problem #3. A metal has a threshold frequency of 3.3 x 10 14 Hz. Light with a frequency of 2.0 x 10 15 Hz shines on the metal. Find the maximum kinetic energy of the photoelectrons. (Show your work.) Given: f o = 3.3x10 14 Hz f = 2.0x10 15 Hz Planck’s Constant, h = 6.6x10 -34 Js KE max = ___________ Equation: KE max = hf – hf o = h(f – f o ) KE max = 6.6x10 -34 Js ( 2.0x10 15 Hz – 3.3x10 14 Hz ) KE max = 1.1x10 -18 J

23 Problem #4. Calculate the de Broglie wavelength of a cannon ball with a mass of 100.0 g and a velocity of 7.0x10 2 m/s. (Show your work.) Given: m = 100.0 g =.1000 kg v = 7.0x10 2 m/s λ = ___________ Equation: λ = h/mv h = 6.6x10 -34 Js Solution: λ = 6.6x10 -34 Js / (.1000 kg · 7.0x10 2 m/s) λ = 9.4x10 -36 m

24 History of Atomic Models (III) 4. Planetary-Quantum model was proposed to align atomic theory with the new physics of Quantum Theory. Niels Bohr(1885-1962), Denmark, determined the equations for r n = 5.3 x 10 -11 m x n 2 and E n = -13.6 eV x 1/n 2
