In this post, we shall start learning about the basic laws of photochemistry. These laws form the basis of all the photochemistry we will study

154. INTRODUCTION (2).
In the previous post, we started to understand the basic difference between radiation chemistry and photochemistry. We concluded that photochemistry is a branch of radiation
For a chemical reaction to occur the reacting molecules must be activated.Usually this activation is carried out thermally i.e by increasing the reaction temperature.Increasing temperature
From this post onwards, we shall begin our discussion on a new topic in physical chemistry – Photochemistry. What comes to your mind when we
35.THE ATOMIC STRUCTURE -OTHER SUB ATOMIC PARTICLES.
In this post we shall just get an overview of some recently discovered sub atomic particles.It was believed that the entire universe was made up
34.THE ATOMIC STRUCTURE- Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle.
Werner Heisenberg, was a German theoretical physicist,who was studying under Sommerfield.Sommerfield knew about Heisenberg’s interest in Niels Bohr’s thesis and so he introduced him to
33. Schrödinger Equation.
The contention between Albert Einstein and Neils Bohr was carried forward and taken to a new level by their respective students – Erwin Schrödinger and Werner
32.THE ATOMIC STRUCTURE- Understanding de broglie’s thesis,Wave Mechanics vs Quantum Mechanics
In the last post we discussed how the de broglie’s hypothesis was validated by experimental data obtained from ,the double-slit experiment,performed by Davisson and Germer.
31.THE ATOMIC STRUCTURE -Experimental validation of de Broglie’s thesis.
Any scientific thesis,even if it is scrupulously proved to be true in theory, is not considered absolute , until it is proved by experimental data.As
30. The Wave-Particle Duality.
In this post, we will start our discussion with a series of new developments in the field of atomic chemistry, which changed the way we look
29. Discovery of neutron.
In the 19th century, the research on the structure of the atom was yielding incomprehensible results. Scientists worldwide were astounded by the revelations. However, this
