16.3 Quantum Mechanics
The theory was contrived from the very beginning.
The idea of a specific number of electrons seemed arbitrary.
The model was a daring step in a new direction that eventually led to the development of quantum mechanics.
In the quantum mechanical description of the atom, it is not possible to assign an exact trajectory to electrons.
Waves of specific shape around the nucleus are what electrons behave like.
The artificial postulates are a result of the quantum mechanical approach to the atom.
Outside of the scope of the model, quantum mechanics explains many phenomena.
The shape of simple molecule can be shown to be the result of the interaction between the electron configurations in the component atoms.
The wavelike properties of particles were introduced in 1924.
Light was known to have both wave and particlelike properties.
Particles may have wavelike properties.
