Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

As a science writer, I've tasked myself with acquiring a thorough theoretical and historical understanding

of Quantum Mechanics.

It would be interesting to know if there has ever been any experimental verification of Laplace's

spherical harmonics, relating to the quantum mechanical model of the atom; Or if spherical harmonics

are purely a theoretical mathematical solution to 3 dimensional cartesian electron orbital locations

at the various quantum energy levels.

It would also be interesting to know which experimental discovery lead to the abandonment of Bohr's planetary model

of the atom, in old quantum mechanics, the scientists who performed the experiment, as well as the date and location

the experiment occured, and the process through which this discovery lead to the current quantum model.

Kind regards,

A. Holtz
