Although an atom is too small to be observed by using optical microscopes, the theoretical and experimental investigations by physicists in the early twentieth century have unraveled many mysteries of atoms. This course will bring students to retrace the thinking paths of these physicists, and participate in the scientific investigation of atoms. Students will learn the basic concepts of atomic physics and how to use modern instruments to determine electron charge, the mass of an electron, as well as the structure of a hydrogen atom. Techniques such as methods of error analysis and writing an experimental report will also be covered. This course includes lectures and experimental sessions.
