Wave Nature of Matter
I.
Matter Waves
A.
Louis de Broglie - 1924
All matter ("particles") also posses wave properties.
Louis de Broglie assumes that nature has a basic symmetry. If light travels as a
wave but interacts as a particle as claimed by Einstein then particles must also
have wave properties! Furthermore, the basic equations must be analogous since
all particles are waves and vice-versa.
B.
Linear Momentum and Wavelength
h
pM v  k

To have linear momentum implies that a baseball has a
___wavelength_____________ and _____frequency_________________ .
C.
Important Concepts and Possible Errors
1.
M is the __relativistic___________ _____mass___________ and not the
______rest_____________ ______mass______________ .
2.
E pc
except for massless particles like photons. You must use the correct
energy-linear momentum relationship for problems involving high-speed particles
E 2  pc   m o c 2 

We obtained deBroglie's relationship in an earlier lesson for photons using
Einstein's photon hypothesis, E= h. In fact, Louis de Broglie states that his
relationship is more fundamental with Einstein's energy relationship being a
special case for a zero rest mass particle traveling at speed c.
Proof:
p=
pc=
Since the photon has no rest-mass, we have by relativity that
E=
E=
Since light is a wave that travels with the speed of c, we have that
c=v=
Substituting into our energy relationship, we have that
E=
Example: Determine the wavelength of a 0.25 kg baseball moving at 30 m/s.
Solution:
Step1 - Do we need to use relativity?
Step 2 - Calculate Linear Momentum
Step 3 - Use deBroglie relationship to find wavelength

4.
The linear momentum of the electron could be obtained independently from the
electrons kinetic energy. For the 54 eV electron beam, the classical kinetic energy
formula is valid:
K =

Importance of Experiment - It proved the ____wave______________
_______nature_____________ of matter. Electrons have a
_______wavelength_________ !
F.
A similar experiment was performed independently later that year by G.P.
Thomson (J.J. Thomson's son). Davidson and Thomson won the Nobel Prize for
their scattering experiments.
III.
Bohr Atom and the de Broglie Relationship
We can now see the reason for the allowed electron orbits in the Bohr model.
These are the only orbits in which the electron waves
_______constructively____________
_____interfere__________.
Proof:
The constructive interference criterion is
2r =
but deBroglie relationship states that
 =
Thus, we have that
2r =
=
In Phys1224, we learned that the magnitude of the angular momentum for an
object in uniform circular motion is given by
Thus, we have the Bohr relationship that
IV.
Bohr Correspondence Principle
A.
There were several problems with old Quantum Mechanics:
1.
It predicted spectral lines but stated nothing about the brightness of the lines.
2.
Many lines were not seen. This indicated that there were selection rules that
determined what lines were present.
3.
The system appeared to ba an ad-hoc set of theories with not formal structure.
B.
One principle designed to provide selection rules is some cases was supplied by
Bohr in 1923 and is called the Correspondence Principle.
1.
The predictions of Quantum Mechancis for the behavior of a system must be the
same as that of classical physics in the limit where quantum numbers become
large.
2.
A selection rule must hold over the entire range of quantum numbers.
These rules can be used to extrapolate QM results to classical physics, but were
usually used to determine QM selection rules from classical physics.
V.
Wilson-Sommerfield Quantization Rules
These rules presented in 1916 were an ad-hoc theory extrapolating classical
mechanics to provide an overall quantization rule for all periodic coordinates.
For any physical system in which the coordinates are periodic functions of time,
there exists a quantum condition for each coordinate. These quantum conditions
are
 p q dq  n q h
where q is one of the generalized coordinates, pq is its canonical momentum, nq is
a quantum number which takes on integer values, and  means that the
integration is taken over one period of the coordinate q.
