Introduction to Blackbody Radiation

Introduction to Blackbody Radiation

– Blackbody is a theoretical object that absorbs 100% radiation. – Carbon in graphite form absorbs all but about 3% of incoming radiation. – At a particular temperature the black body would emit the maximum amount of energy possible for that temperature. This value is known as blackbody radiation. – Maximum wavelength emitted by a […]

Introduction to Quantum Mechanics

With classical physics, we are certain that we can determine the future by analyzing the data from the past and the present. However, the discovery of quantum mechanics shown that even with all necessary information, the future remains unknown. In the early 1900, four important events had revolutionized science and the way we think about […]

History of Quantum Mechanics & Relativity

In the early 19th century, most phenomenons can be explained by classical (or Newtonian) mechanics. By the turn of the century, however, many anomalies instances spawned that can only be explained through Relativity and Quantum Mechanics. Relativity was discovered mainly to describe physics of very massive and very fast objects. Quantum Mechanics was developed to […]
