Question

Which of the following experiments in quantum mechanics is NOT correctly summarized?

a. Photoelectric Effect: High intensity, high energy light cannot eject electrons from a metal plate. This means energy cannot be transferred from light to electrons.

b. Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle: The more precisely you know the position of an electron, the less precisely you can know its velocity

c. Atomic emission spectra: When Argon gas is heated, the gas emits light with discrete energy levels, rather than a continuous spectrum. This indicates that electrons are not found at random energy levels in an atom, but at energy levels that are quantized.

d. Electron Diffraction: When firing electrons one at a time toward at a grating, an interference pattern is generated. This indicates that electrons behave like waves.
