Wave Nature of Electron worksheet

Wave nature of electron worksheet

Einstein (1905) suggested that light has dual character i.e., as ‘wave’ and as ‘particle’. Louis de Broglie, E. Schrodinger and W. Heisenberg developed a wave theory based on wave mechanical concept of the electron.

Here are some questions and answers related to wave nature of electrons.

Worksheet Questions:

1. Which is not correctly matched:

(a)    Dual nature of electron was given by \to de Broglie

(b)   Wave nature of electron was confirmed by  \to Devison and Germer

(c)    Uncertainty principle was explained by  \to Heisenberg

(d)   Spin of electron can be confirmed by  \to Schrodinger wave equation

4. Wave nature can be given for:

(a)    e^- only

(b)   p only

(c)    n only

5. In which d-orbital there are only two lobes?

(a)    d_{x^2- y^2}
