The O'Donnell Foundation is devoted to building model programs to enhance the quality of education.
Over the summer PhET will be hard at work upgrading our simulations for the new school year! Help support our summer vacation work and give the gift of learning by donating today!
|School / Organization||Central Washington University|
|Title||Testing Ideas from Classical and Quantum Physics|
|Simulations||Model Atom Hidrogen|
|Keywords||model building, hydrogen atom|
|Description||In this activity, students will first run the simulation develop characteristics of a model for the hydrogen atom based on their initial observations. Then they will test different models, comparing them to the characteristics of their model and to their observations. This activity simulates how scientists often work, developing models based on observations and then testing those models.|
