What is Wheat Stone Bridge? A Wheatstone bridge is an electrical circuit used to measure an unknown electrical resistance by balancing two legs of a bridge circuit, one leg of which includes the unknown component. it was invented by Samuel Hunter Christie in 1833 and improved and popularized by Sir Charles Wheatstone in 1843.Although today digital multimeters provide the simplest way to measure a resistance, … Continue reading Meter Bridge Experiment using Wheatstone Bridge Principle
Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle or indeterminacy principle was given by German scientist Warner Heisenberg according to which position and momentum of an object can not be measured simultaneously. So if we measure the position of some particle more precisely then its momentum is measured less precisely and vice verse.
Derivation of Lorentz transformation equations using orthogonal transformations Let us consider two uniformly moving frames of reference where origins coincides at . let the source of light is fixed at unprimed frame of reference and emits a pulse of light. The observer fixed in the unprimed frame of reference will observe a spherical wave-front propagating with the speed of light , whose equation can be … Continue reading Lorentz Transformation
Today in this post I’ll be writing about the electricity and magnetism books that I feel might be good considering whiling studying this subject for your undergraduate exams and also for when you appear for entrance exams like JAM for getting admission in masters in physics from good university or institute
ELECTRICITY AND MAGNETISM by A Mahajan, A Rangwala :- This is the first book in my list and I really like this book as it is extensive in its content and things are explained pretty clearly. You can consider this book for its comprehensiveness. You can take a look at the preview of this book here
Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle or indeterminacy principle was given by German scientist Warner Heisenberg according to which position and momentum of an object can not be measured simultaneously. So if we measure the position of some particle more precisely then its momentum is measured less precisely and vice versa.
Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle can be written as follows
Show that the uncertainty relation forces us to reject the semi classical Bohr model for the hydrogen atom
In Bohr atom model we deal with the electron as a classical particle. The allowed orbits are defined by the quantization rules:
The radius r of a circular orbit and the momentum
Here our problem is to prove that the Bohr hydrogen atom approaches classical conditions when n becomes very large and small quantum jumps are involved.
To prove this let us compute the frequency of a photon that is emitted in the transition between the adjacent state
Nuclear fission is said to have occurred when nucleus of an atom splits into several small fragments. In nuclear physics nuclear fission either occurs as a nuclear reaction or as a radioactive decay process in which nucleus of an atom splits into smaller and lighter nuclei. The fission process often produces free neutrons and photons (in the form of gamma rays), and releases a very large amount of energy even by the energetic standards of radioactive decay.
