The Origin of Quantum Mechanics (feat. Neil Turok)Lesson Planet
4 mins 9th - 12th
How do you get the most light out of a light bulb? That's the task Max Planck took on, and it turned out to be rather...enlightening! The illustrated video introduces physics scholars to Planck's plight, which ultimately changed our...
Particles and Waves: The Central Mystery of Quantum MechanicsLesson Planet
5 mins 10th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
Help young physicists make a quantum leap in their understanding of matter with this short instructional video. Tracing the early work of Max Planck, Albert Einstein, and others, this resource explains the science behind the amazing fact...
The Ultraviolet CatastropheLesson Planet
7 mins 9th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
What do scientists do when their observations don't match the theory? An interesting video introduces the ultraviolet catastrophe as part of a larger series covering physics concepts. Starting with ultraviolet light and ending with...
Atomic Emission Spectra and the Bohr Model of the AtomLesson Planet
9th - 12th
Students investigate the wavelengths of spectra lines for common atoms. In this atomic emission spectra lesson plan, students use a transformer and diffraction grating to observe the emission spectra of various atoms. They find the...
Blackbody SpectrumLesson Planet
6th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
A perfect blackbody absorbs all incoming light and does not reflect any light. In an interactive simulation, individuals see how the blackbody spectrum of the sun compares to visible light. They can compare the sun to a light bulb, an...
Flame Tests of Metal CationsLesson Planet
9th - Higher Ed CCSS: Adaptable
Scientists used flame tests to identify elements long before the invention of emission spectroscopy. Young chemists observe a flame test of five metal cations in the fourth lesson of an 11-part series. Individuals then work...
