Abstract

In this section of the Quantum Mechanics class we discuss the particle-wave duality and the need for the quantization of energy to explain the black-body radiation and the photoelectric effect. We provide reading material, slides and video, which in a very illustrative way, explain the most difficult concept in quantum-mechanics: the particle-wave duality. A homework assignment, that teaches the students the quantization of the angular momentum and energy and also helps the students to better understand the photoelectric effect, is also provided;
