Quanta[edit]

Quantum is a physical quantity that can only has a fixed value of a momentum wave . From De Broglie, matter's wave

We can see that

From Planck's measurement h has value

Quanta is a physical quantity that represent a massless momentum wave

Characteristics of Quanta[edit]

Wave-Particle Duality[edit]

Quanta process Wave-Particle duality

Wave like .
Particle like .

Quanta's States[edit]

Quanta exist in 2 states

Radiant photon at Threshold frequency . of a quantum energy
Non-Radiant photon at frequency greater Threshold frequency . of a quantum energy

Heiseinberg Uncertainty Priciple[edit]

states that

Quanta's energy , Photon , cannot exist in 2 states at the same times

There are 2 states of photons chances to find photon as radiant photon or Non-radiant photon is one half 1/2 which can be expressed mathematically as

Quantum Physics[edit]

Electromagnetic Wave Radiation[edit]

Experiment shows that electromagnetic wave radiation carries quantum energy

at of a Radiant photon that produce visible light
at of a Non-Radiant photon that produce electricity made of free electron

This can be deduce from , electromagnetic wave equation

Solving equation above, we have electromagnetic function

Electromagnetic wave radiation produces quantum energy travels at speed of light

  • Speed .
  • Quantum energy .
  • Quantum .
  • Wavelength .
  • Momentum .

Atom Decay[edit]

Experiment shows that . When atom absorbs electromagnetic radiation quantum energy . Electron of atom is released from atom going out off atom . When atom releases electromagnetic radiation quantum energy . Electron of atom is released from atom going inside atom

Free electron going out of atom

Free electron going inside of atom

Matter Decay[edit]

Alpha decay unstable radioactive material decays to become more stable . This type of decay releases Relative mass and Alpha photon travels at a speed relative to speed of light

Beta decay unstable isotope material decays to become more stable . This type of decay releases Relative mass and Beta photon travels at a speed equals to speed of light


Gamma decay collision of electron . This type of decay releases Relative mass and Gamma photon travels at a speed equals to speed of light
