This section is part of the HSC Physic syllabus Module 8: From the universe to the atom, Quantum Mechanical Nature of the Atom.
In this post, we will investigate de Broglie’s matter waves and the experimental evidence that developed the de Broglie wavelength!
De Broglie wavelength
The De Broglie hypothesis proposes that all matter exhibits wave-like properties.
Furthermore, let’s also analyse the contribution of Schrödinger to the current model of the atom.
The Schrödinger model assumes that the electron is a wave.
