Emission spectrum from a hot atomic gas vapor (could also be electrically scattering of charged particles from atoms. Rutherford’s planetary model In , Hans Geiger and Ernest Marsden carried out a series of experiments rounded by orbiting electrons. (now known to be ionized helium atoms) onto a thin gold foil sheet, as. I'm not sure what exactly was glowing in the earliest experiments, but it might well be the $\mathrm{N}_2$. Later it was normal to put some mercury in the tubes because it works really well. In fact, that is what a florescent light is: a mercury vapor lamp (generally with some phosphors on the glass to get a nicer spectrum).

It consists of a gas of ions – atoms which have some of their orbital electrons removed – and free electrons. Plasma can be artificially generated by heating a neutral gas or subjecting it to a strong electromagnetic field to the point where an ionized gaseous substance becomes increasingly electrically conductive. The resulting charged ions and electrons become influenced by long-range electromagnetic . The scientist whose alpha-particle experiment led him to conclude that the nucleus of an atom contains a dense center of positive charge is Ernest Rutherford Rutherford bombarded gold foil with alpha (a) particles and found that a small percentage of the particles were deflected.

_____ and _____ performed an experiment which demonstrated the existence of excited states in mercury atoms, helping to confirm the quantum theory which predicted that electrons occupied only discrete, quantized energy states. Electrons were accelerated by a voltage toward a positively charged grid in a glass envelope filled with mercury vapor.

In some other experiments an arc of to ampere was passed through mercury vapor in a 12 cm bulb from an external mercury cathode while the distribution of the velocities of 50 volt primary electrons from a hot cathode in the bulb was studied.

Experiments with two crossed electron beams prove that the secondary and ultimate electrons, directly or indirectly, are responsible for very little if any of the scattering. A study of the ultimate electrons in the positive column of a low voltage mercury arc shows that the Maxwellian velocity distribution corresponding to a high temperature (°) is maintained in a small tube in spite of the fact that the.

Experimental Procedure. The experiment is performed with the Franck-Hertz tube inside an oven. The oven temperature controls the density of the mercury vapor inside the tube and thus influences the frequency of collisions between electrons and mercury atoms.

The pressure of the mercury vapor is its vapor pressure. quantized energy states. They discovered that electrons moving through mercury vapor with an energy greater than or equal to a critical value near eV can excite the A line of the mercury spectrum. Electrons with less than the critical energy bounce elastically when they collide with mercury atoms and fail to excite any elec-tromagnetic emission.

— With large cathodes coated with barium oxide in low pressure mercury vapor, simultaneous measurements showed that the electron current density was independent of the cathode temperature and was from to times the ion current density, this ratio being independent of the intensity of ionization and of the gas pressure but varying slowly with the voltage drop in the cathode sheath, in.

InJames Franck and Gustav Hertz began a collaboration to investigate the nature of collisions of slow electrons with gas molecules that led to a series of carefully planned and executed experiments, culminating in their discovery of inelastic collisions of electrons with mercury vapor atoms in This paper tells the story of their collaboration and the eventual reinterpretation of Cited by: 4.

We performed the Franck-Hertz experiment by scattering thermionically emitted electrons off of mercury vapor in a glass tube, successfully showing that the energy levels in the mercury atom are. Collisions between Electrons and Mercury Vapor Molecules and the Ionization Potential of Such Molecules IN A PREVIOUS PAPER WE were able to show that the ionization potential, that is, the potential through which an elec- tron must fall freely in order to ionize a gas molecule by collision, is a I James Franck and Gustav Hertz, Verhand.

Deut. The same experimental set-up as in Experiment 2 with an additional Plexiglas. In contrast to Experiment 2, it is observed that no electrons are emitted. This is because the Plexiglas filters out the high-energy UV light of the mercury vapor lamp and only the visible portion of light passes.

FRANCK‐HERTZ EXPERIMENT Electrons are accelerated and pass through mercury vapor, where they lose energy by inelastic scattering as they excite mercury atoms from the ground state to an excited state. The energy transferred is confirmed to be quantized.

When electrons of sufficiently high kinetic energy leaving the cathode ( eV or more) collide with mercury atoms a fraction of the atoms will be ionized. Upon recombination of these ions with stray electrons, the mercury-arc spectrum is emitted and the characteristic blue color of the undispersed visible light is observed (by undispersed, we.

Franck and Hertz's original experiment used a heated vacuum tube containing a drop of mercury; they reported a tube temperature of °C, at which the vapor pressure of mercury is about pascals (and far below atmospheric pressure).

GASES (ATOMS AND MOLECULES) Experimental techniques for measuring interaction cross-sections of electrons with different targets (neutral, excited, or ionized atoms and molecules in gaseous, liquid, and solid phases) have been a subject of intense research and continuous development since the beginning of the 20th century (Franck and Hertz, ; Ramsauer, ).

The metal casing surrounding the tube is grounded. This mercury is heated to deg.C to maintain a mercury vapor pressure in the tube. The pressure is, of course, temperature dependent and the amount of pressure is critical to the experiment.

If the vapor density is too low, there may be too few mercury atoms to produce observable effects. It is a cascade reaction involving electrons in a region with a sufficiently high electric field in a gaseous medium that can be ionized, such as air.

Following an original ionization event, due to such as ionizing radiation, the positive ion drifts towards the cathode, while the free electron drifts towards the anode of the device.
