Quantum Physics: Definition, Theories & Topics

1. Quantum Physics: Definition, Theories & Topics

In this lesson, you will learn what quantum physics, otherwise known as quantum mechanics, is, some of its theories and topics, and the weird consequences that go along with it. A short quiz will follow.

Wave-Particle Duality: Concept, Explanation & Examples

2. Wave-Particle Duality: Concept, Explanation & Examples

Is light a particle with mass and substance? Or, is it just a wave traveling through space? Most scientists say light is both a particle and a wave! Find out how they came to this strange conclusion as we learn about the theory of wave-particle duality.

Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle: Definition & Equation

3. Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle: Definition & Equation

The Heisenberg uncertainty principle is one of the core concepts in quantum mechanics. In this lesson, we define the uncertainty principle and learn more about its implications for physical science.

The Photoelectric Effect: Definition, History, Application & Equation

4. The Photoelectric Effect: Definition, History, Application & Equation

In this lesson, you will learn what the photoelectric effect is, how it was discovered, how it applies to everyday life, and the equation associated with it. A short quiz will follow.

Four Quantum Numbers: Principal, Angular Momentum, Magnetic & Spin

5. Four Quantum Numbers: Principal, Angular Momentum, Magnetic & Spin

Each electron inside of an atom has its own 'address' that consists of four quantum numbers that communicate a great deal of information about that electron. In this lesson, we will be defining each quantum number and explaining how to write a set of quantum numbers for a specific electron.
