    Planck Hypothesis

    Planck’s hypothesis was postulated by Max Planck for the intensity curve to fit the experimental data which was observed. He then created his formula.Dispite previous attempts to model the experimental data using intensities, Planck's formula allowed energy to be continuously distributed among all frequencies. Planck’s model required that the energy in the atomic vibrations of frequency, f, was some integer times a small, minimum discrete energy.


    Were h is now known as Planck’s constant

    h = 6.626176 x 10-34Js

    Planck’s proposal, then requires that all the energy in the atomic vibrations with frequency f can be written as

    E = nhf

    Where n is an integer, n = 1, 2, 3,… no other values of the energy are allowed. The atomic oscillator could not have energy of (2.73)hf or (5/8) hf.
    This idea that sometimes the energy can have only certain discrete values is called quantization. We say that the energy is quantized. This is Planck’s quantum hypothesis. “Quantum” means how great or of a fixed size.

    Electron Acceleration

    An electron is accelerated through potential difference of 3eV and is incident on a finite potential barrier of height 5eV and thickness 5x 10^-10m. What is the probability that the electron will tunnel though the barrier. I am not 100 percent sure how to do this so a detailed solution would be helpful.
