Discussion

The recoil velocity of the particle of dust is extremely small. As we have noted, however, there are immense numbers of photons in sunlight and other macroscopic sources. In time, collisions and absorption of many photons could cause a significant recoil of the dust, as observed in comet tails.

Which of the following describes one of the main features of wave-particle duality?

  1. As speed increases, the wave nature of matter becomes more evident.
  2. As momentum decreases, the particle nature of matter becomes more evident.
  3. As energy increases, the wave nature of matter becomes easier to observe.
  4. As mass increases, the wave nature of matter is less easy to observe.

(d)

Explain why Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle limits the precision with which either momentum or position of a subatomic particle can be known, but becomes less applicable for matter at the macroscopic level.

Section summary

  • The particle-wave duality refers to the fact that all particles—those with mass and those without mass—have wave characteristics.
  • This is a further connection between mass and energy.

ok we can say body is electrically neutral ...conductor this quality is given to most metalls who have free electron in orbital d ...but human doesn't have ...so we re made from insulator or dielectric material ... furthermore, the menirals in our body like k, Fe , cu , zn
