The Basics of Quantum Physics
Understanding the Photoelectric Effect and Line SpectraBook - 2005
In simple language, these informative books offer explanations of the important concepts high school students encounter in science and physics classes. The series uses easy-to-understand examples throughout, to help students investigate and interpret scientific methodology, theories, and laws. Each title in the series covers a specific concept in physics, including the laws of motion and thermodynamics; kinetic and potential energy; gravity and magnetism; the characteristics of sound; and more. Colorful diagrams and photographs help to make this the perfect series for challenged high school students who might have trouble understanding required high school physics concepts. Using relevant diagrams and pictures to illustrate concepts discussed, this is a straightforward introduction to quantum physics, focusing on the nature of light and the atom. Written for the student who may have difficulty understanding physics concepts in basic textbooks, the book describes current theories and concepts, explaining how,Bohr took the ideas of Planck and Einstein and applied them to the model of the atom, changing our understanding of the basic building block of the physical world.
