In this lab experience, students explore whether it is possible to know the precise location of an electron around the nucleus of an atom at any given time as they perform an investigation that models quantum mechanics. Students explore the difficulty of finding an electron around the nucleus and come to understand that we can only determine the probability of its location. Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle states that there is a fundamental limitation as to just how precisely both the position and the momentum of a particle can be known at any given time. Quantum mechanics deals only with the probability of finding a particle within a given region of space at any given time. With a few simple and safe materials, your students are sure to grasp this important concept!
