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
28. Pauli’s exclusion principle, Aufbau Principle, Hund’s rule of maximum multiplicity, Electronic Configurations.
THE NOBEL PRIZE. The Nobel Prize for Chemistry this year is awarded to three great chemists – Jean-Pierre Sauvage(University of Strasbourg, France), Sir J. Fraser
27. Quantum Numbers.
In the last post, we saw how quantum numbers were introduced to understand the structure of the atom. These quantum numbers described all the necessary
26.THE ATOMIC STRUCTURE – The Sommerfield Model,Introduction of the Quantum Numbers.
As we saw in the earlier post, though the Bohr model was successful in paving the way into the structure of the atom, it was not
25.THE ATOMIC STRUCTURE – The Bohr Model(3)
Niels Bohr brought a revolution by making necessary amendments in the Rutherford’s nuclear model and later proposing his own model. His theoretical predictions were authenticated
24.THE ATOMIC STRUCTURE – The Bohr Model(2).
We continue our discussion on the Bohr model in this post and try to see its applications and implications . Neils Bohr , with his
