Equation Model The Schrödinger Wave Equation A theoretical base of the existence and location of an electron amongst an atom. Schrödinger wasn't interested in wave mechanics until 1925. He found inspiration from Louis de Broglie,gaining an interest in the idea that electrons move in a wave motion in contradictionto the current belief of particle leaping. In 1933 he won the Noble Prize in recognition of his work studying the behavior of the electron in the atom. This theory is based around quantum mechanics. Referred to as his most famous work. A paradox involving a cat, a box, a vial of radioactive material, a hammer and Geiger counter (a device that measures radioactivity) The observer, looking from the outside, doesn't know if the cat is alive or whether the radioactive material has decayed. Illustrating the dual possibilities of quantum physics,the same science that makes light both a particle and a wave. If the material decays, the Geiger counter will trigger a chain reaction for the hammer to smash open the vial, and thus kill the cat. Therefore the cat is both alive and dead until the box is opened for clarification. Heisenberg In 1925, Heisenberg developed Matrix Mechanics in Germany. In Denmark, during 1927 Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle was constructed. Matrix Mechanics Completely contradicted Schrödingers Wave Equation. Confirmed quantum jumping of electrons between energy levels. One of Heisenberg's bigger mathematical achievements. The Uncertainty Principle In,1932 Heisenberg won the Nobel Prize for Physics, for the discovery of his uncertainty principal. The Uncertainty Principle: The more precisely the position is determined, the less precisely the momentum is known in this instant, and vice versa. This theory describes the uncertain relationship between the position and momentum of subatomic particles. If one were to test the behavior of a quantum particle, one could not do so without somehow affecting it. Lipkin, Richard. "Schrodinger's cat: two atoms in one?" Science News 25 May 1996: 325.
