FREE ELECTRON THEORY Classical free electron theory of metals This theory was developed by Drude and Lorentz and hence is also known as Drude-Lorentz theory. According to this theory, a metal consists of electrons which are free to move about in the crystal like molecules of a gas in a container. Mutual repulsion between electrons is ignored and hence potential energy is taken as zero. Therefore the total energy of the electron is equal to its kinetic energy. Drift velocity If no electric...

The Electron of Atomic Physics

Sir J.J.THOMSOM is to physics what electron is to an atom. He charged the world of physics with his discoveries and gave momentum to atomic physics. Physics is what today because of this British scientist who is regarded as the greatest experimental physicists of this century. A bookseller’s son, Thomsom studied at the Owens College and later at the Manchester University. He wanted to become an engineer, but his father’s death in 1872 forced him to study Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry as he...

Deflection of an Electron Beam by a Magentic Field

Deflection of an Electron Beam by an Electric Field Nicole N Lab Problem 1.4 – February 3, 2011 Problem Statement: We were asked to test the design of an electron microscope to determine how a change in the electric field affects the position of the beam spot. The goal is to find out how different variables, such as charge of the deflection plates providing a vertical electric field and initial velocity of the electron beam will affect the amount of deflection the electron beam experiences...

Atp Formation Is Coupled to Electron Transport During the Light Phase of Photosynthesis, Discuss

INTRODUCTION Overall, light energy drives a flow of electrons along a system of carriers from H2O to NADP+. The carriers are bound to the membrane between reaction centres. Though their precise arrangement is not known, the carriers seem to be organized so that the electron flow cause H+ to move from the stroma to the space within the thylakoids. The resulting difference in H+ concentration across the membrane represents a store of energy that is though to drive he formation of ATP. According to...

Electron Configuration

Electron Configuration Patterns WE CANNOT KNOW THE EXACT LOCATIONS OF ELECTRONS WITHIN ENERGY LEVELS, BUT WE CAN DESCRIBE PROBABLE REGIONS OF ELECTRON LOCATION. Our understanding of electron distribution is based on mathematical probabilities that result from knowledge about the behavior of charged particles in an atom: |a) | | |b) | ...

Valence Electrons

Valence Electrons The valence electrons are the electrons in the last shell or energy level of an atom. They do show a repeating or periodic pattern. The valence electrons increase in number as you go across a period. Then when you start the new period, the number drops back down to one and starts increasing again. For example, when you go across the table from carbon to nitrogen to oxygen, the number of valence electrons increases from 4 to 5 to 6. As we go from fluorine to neon to sodium, the...
