Answer :

Q. 2. What is Compton effect ? What is its basic importance? Obtain an expression for Compton shift.
An X-ray photon of wave length 0.15° A is reflected at an angle of 135° after collision with an electron. Calculate the energy it loses on collision.
Answer :

Q. 3. What are limitations of Thomson’s parabola method for determining e/M of positive rays. Describe in detail. Aston’s mass spectrograph.
Answer :

Q. 4. Describe Millikan’s oil drop method for the determination of charge of electron. What is quantisation of charge ?
Fn Millikan’s oil drop experiment an oil drop of mass 4.9 * I0-14Kgm is balanced by applying a potential difference of 2 KV between two plates which are 8 mm apart. Calculate the number of elementary charges on the drop.
Answer :

Q, 5. Give an account of Bohr’s theory of H-atom. What is Bohr’s radius. Draw the energy level diagram of H-atom after calculating the value of En.
Answer :

Q. 6. Establish Einstein’s photo-electric equation by explaining the quantum postulates involved therein. How dies it explain the laws of photoelectric emission ?
An X-ray diffraction of a crystal gave the closest line at an angle of 6.5°. If the wave length of X-rays is 0.55 A, find the inter planar spacing for that reflection.
