Lecture 2 - Discovery of Nucleus

Principles of Chemical Science, Normal Track

MIT

Structure of the Atom: A Conundrum. The work of E. Rutherford, 1911, lead to the discovery of the nucleus. In this lecture, Professor Sylvia Ceyer begins by explaining the backscattering experiment that lead to this key discovery in the early 20th century. She then moves on to a classical description of the atom, including coulombic interaction and the classical equation of motion (Newton's Second Law). The lecture ends with discussion of the wave-particle duality of matter and radiation, highlighting the wave nature of light and the periodic variation of an electromagnetic field.
