The photoelectric effect experiment was sig-
nificant because
1. it showed us how to make an instrument
to detect light by converting photons into
brown (cb42578) – Homework 12 – appartaim – (20541) 2
electrons, ultimately leading to the invention
of the television camera.
2. it demonstrated the existence of quan-
tized states in atoms.
3. it proved that atoms cannot exist if the
rules of classical physics were obeyed on the
atomic scale.
4. it led to the development of the Heisen-
berg Uncertainty Principle, a revolutionary
development that forced us to abandon the
idea of determinacy at the atomic scale and
accept that all we can know are the probabil-
ities of future outcomes.
5. it required us to accept the fact that light
can behave like particles, in contrast to the
teachings of classical physics.

At the time of Rutherford’s gold leaf experi-
ment, scientists knew that negatively charged
electrons existed within the atom, but they
did not know where the positive charge
resided.
charge was provided by Rutherford’s exper-
iment?
1. The positive charge must be concentrated
in a small core (the atomic nucleus).
2. The positive charge can freely move
within the atom.
3. There is no positive charge associated
with an atom.
4. The positive charge is spread throughout
the atom.

In the Bohr model of the atom, the postulate
stating that the orbital angular momentum of
the electron is quantized can be interpreted in
which of the following ways?
1. The atom is composed of a small, posi-
tively charged nucleus orbited by electrons.
2. An integral number of electron wave-
lengths must fit into the electron’s circular
orbit.
3. An electron has spin of
1

.
4. Only one electron can exist in each possi-
ble electron state.
5. An incident photon is completely ab-
sorbed when it causes an electron to move
to a higher energy state.
