Schrodinger Wave Equation and Wave Function

The general one-dimensional Schrodinger Wave Equation is expressed as Where, ψ(x, t) is the wave function, V(x) is the potential function and it is assumed to be independent of time. m is the mass of the particle and j is the imaginary number √(-1). The wave function ψ(x, t) is used to describe the behavior … Read more

Energy Quanta | Development of Quantum Physics

Energy quanta is one of the fundamentals of the much heard of Quantum Physics. To understand it better, we would first understand the need of this new physics. The already established and much famous Newtonian Physics or the Classical Physics did indeed answer a lot of questions bothering the mankind, but it had its own … Read more

Wave Particle Duality Principle

With the development of Photoelectric effect, Crompton’s effect and Bohr’s model of atom, the idea of light or in fact radiations in general, being composed of particles or discrete Quanta was gaining wide popularity. However, the very established Huygen’s Principle and the results of Young’s double slit experiments made it very clear that light was … Read more

Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle

Introduction of Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle This prediction of unpredictability is known as Heisenberg uncertainty principle. The uncertainty principle describes the relationship between conjugate variables, like position and momentum or energy and time. In 1927 a German physicist Werner Heisenberg proposed that we cannot measure the position and velocity of an object accurately, simultaneously. This statement … Read more
