You Can Measure This Fundamental Quantum Constant Using LEDs
Wired shares this pretty in depth look at Planck’s constant. Plank’s constant is a fundamental constant like the speed of light or an electric charge. Learn more how it funtions and how you can measure it with some basic LEDs. From Wired:
The Planck constant has a value of 6.626 x 10-34 joule-seconds, and it mostly appears in calculations dealing with quantum mechanics. It turns out that really tiny things (like atoms) don’t actually behave like big things (like baseballs). At this super-small scale, our classical view of physics doesn’t work.
