Ôax Plank added a twist
with his Quantum Theory

In 1900, Plank proposed that:






In order for an atom to absorb a packet of energy, it
must absorb the whole packet or none at all.
G G  


critics were legion. It wasn't until
1902 that a young man who worked at a
telegraph office near Berlin designed an
experiment that would be known as the
"Photoelectric Effect".
This young man was Albert Einstein.

In his experiment Einstein showed that as the
frequency of radiation was directly proportional to
the energy that was absorbed by the electrons.
The math statement of this relationship is stated as

E = hu

here E is the energy, absorbed by the electrons, h

is Plank·s Constant and u is frequency of radiation.



" #

[ e proposed that the electrons existed at

set levels of energy, at fixed distances
from the nucleus.
[ If the atom absorbed energy, the
electron jumped to a level further from
the nucleus
" #

[ If it radiated energy, it fell to a level

closer to the nucleus.
[ is model was a huge leap forward in
making theory fit the experimental
evidence that other physicists had
found over the years.

[ hen the light is passed through a prism only a
few wavelengths are present in resulting spectra

[ These appear as lines separated by dark areas,

and thus are called line spectra

[ hen the spectrum emitted by hydrogen gas was

passed through a prism and separated into its
constituent wavelengths four lines appeared at
characteristic wavelengths
[ Bohr began with the assumption that electrons
were orbiting the nucleus, much like the earth
orbits the sun.

[ rom classical physics, a charge traveling in a

circular path should lose energy by emitting
electromagnetic radiation
[ If the "orbiting" electron loses energy, it should
up spiraling into the nucleus (which it does not).

[ Therefore, classical physical laws either don't apply

or are inadequate to explain the inner workings of
the atom
[ Bohr borrowed the idea of quantize energy from

[ e proposed that only orbits of certain radii,

corresponding to defined energies, are "permitted"

[ An electron orbiting in one of these "allowed" orbits:

[ as a defined energy state

[ ill not radiate energy

[ ill not spiral into the nucleus
If the orbits of the electron are restricted,
the energies that the electron can possess are
likewise restricted and are defined by the
Bohr Ôodel of the atom

that electrons will diffract and interfere like waves, just like
X-ray photons (light).
