UNIT 3. QUANTUM THEORY

1. Waves Behave Like Particles

- Describe the spectrum emitted by a hot body and explain
  the basic theory that underlies the emission of hot-body
  radiation.
- Explain the photoelectric effect and recognize that quantum
  theory can explain it, whereas the wave theory cannot.
- Explain the Compton effect and describe it in terms of the
  momentum and energy of the photon.

2. Particles Behave Like Waves

- Describe experiments that demonstrate the particle-like
  properties of electromagnetic radiation.
- Describe evidence of the wave nature of matter and solve
  problems relating wavelength to particle momentum.
- Recognize the dual nature of both waves and particles and
  the importance of the Heisenberg uncertainty principle.
