Post-Module Question #20

Postby Jasmine Wu 1L » Sun Oct 22, 2017 4:41 pm

Hello! I'm having some trouble doing #20 from the Heisenberg Indeterminacy Equation post-module.

Use the above uncertainty in velocity (which I calculated to be delta v = 3.4*10^10 m/s) to calculate the electron's uncertainty in kinetic energy. Then calculate the uncertainty in kinetic energy per mole of electrons (that is, per mole of hydrogen atoms).

How would I calculate the kinetic energy and then its uncertainty per mole of electrons?

I believe that you would use the equation K = 1/2mv^2 to find kinetic energy, using delta v and the mass of an electron then multiply this by avogadro's constant.

Kinetic Energy = (1/2)(9.109x10^-31 kg)(3.4x10^10)^2
= 5.3 x 10^-10 J/e
(5.3x10^-10) x (6.022 x 10^23) = 3.2 x 10^14 J/mol
