Introduction to Chemistry

The Bohr Model

The Bohr Model, lesson:

Bohr's Theory of the Hydrogen Atom – College Physics:

The theory of electron waves, by Louis de Broglie:

         Louis de Broglie - Nobel Lecture: "The wave nature of the electron".


Lecture on Khan Academy:

         electron defraction patterns, wavelike behavior

         what is the waving of an electron? Quantum Wavefunction


Electrons must not interfere with themselves:

      Electrons and standing waves:

      Why is light slower in glass? and


                   can light travel faster than Einstein's speed of light?, photons interfering with themselves,  light speed phase velocity, polariton,

                   refraction index, phase shift,


Hands-on Projects...

Design a paper experiment where wave and circle cutouts have to be fitted to a certain radius. Have the students fit clones of the wave piece in a circlular manner.

Have the students understand why some lengths fit and why others don't. Begin with at least 3 or 4 waves (peaks).
