What keeps electrons from falling into the nucleus of an atom?
At the intra-atomic level, classical mechanics and electromagnetism are no longer valid: electrons are not balls that orbit around the nucleus, they are more aptly described by a probability distribution. So it’s necessary to analyse this systems’ behaviour using quantum mechanics. Therefore:
- Bound systems can exist only for discrete values of energy —as per Schrödinger equation.
- The ground-state (lowest-energy state) can’t correspond to a stationary particle state —as per the uncertainty principle.
This implies that the electrons’ ground-state can’t be the one that corresponds to electrons “fallen” in the nucleus. Consequently, their ground-state should have higher energy, that coincides to a state at finite distance from the nucleus.
In other words: there are energy levels forbidden to an electron and the level that would coincide with the nucleus is one of these.
This is a look at the thought process behind the Awukii Kick back. “What is a Kick Back” is a documentary put together by the band and this is a combination of live footage and their thoughts of the event they created. With live footage by Carlos Ruiz and a testimonial by SCUM. www.facebook.com/awukii www.soundcloud.com/awukii www.blogspot.com/awukiisays www.twitter.com/awukii
Yup its that time
Cookiecutter shark (Isistius brasiliensis), named for the perfectly circular bites it will take out of its prey.
