HON CHEMISTRY: Great job on quantum mechanics today! We’ll set it up with electrons tomorrow. Don’t worry, it’s supposed to be a little strange, you’ve never heard of this before, right? We’ll go slow again tomorrow and you’ll get it, I promise! By the way – the beginning of the vodcast has some of the problems from last night’s homework. How’d you do on them?
Here are the two video clips that we talked about in class that I want you to watch. Animated Quantum Video is the one we watched in class. It explains all about why scientists began to believe that electrons could be acting as waves. The next video clip, Quantum Mechanics, explains more about the role of the men we studied today in the development of the quantum model of the atom. You will be responsible for the information in both videos. And they’re both really good, I promise!
