Q. 1. (a) Describe an experiment for which classical mechanics is inadequate to explain the results. 4
(b) Explain ‘Duality Concept’ in physics and obtain and expression for the de Broglie wavelength for an accelerated electron.
Q. 2. (a) State Heisenberg uncertainty principle and explain how results of the experiment of diffraction of electron beam by a slit can be used to describe the significance of the principle.
(b) Using the uncertainty principle, show that an electron cannot exist inside a nucleus but can exist in an atom.
