Johannes Stark Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Johannes Stark from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

The emitters of the spectral series are without exception single atoms,
not compounds of atoms.
- Johannes Stark

Thus at the beginning of 1906 it seemed to be established
that the emitters of the spectral series of chemical
elements are their positive atomic ions.
- Johannes Stark

We can in fact first place the beam of rays of moving
positive atomic ions in a plane perpendicular to the
axis in which we see the spectral lines emitted by them.
- Johannes Stark

The removal of an electron from the surface of an atom -
that is,
the ionization of the atom - means a fundamental structural
change in its surface layer.
- Johannes Stark

 

A beam of luminous hydrogen canal rays has,
owing to its velocity, exactly the same direction as
that of the electric field in which it may be made to move.
- Johannes Stark

By allowing the positive ions to pass through an electric
field and thus giving them a certain velocity,
it is possible to distinguish them from the neutral,
stationary atoms.
- Johannes Stark

By recognizing that the chemical atom is composed of
single separable electric quanta,
humanity has taken a great step forward in the investigation of the natural world.

It is more likely that more than a century will pass
before we know the structure of the chemical atoms
as thoroughly as we do our solar system.
- Johannes Stark

The question of the composition of perceptible objects
is one which already occupied the mind of the ancient Greeks.
- Johannes Stark

The movement of the emitters of the spectral lines
may be deduced on the basis of the Doppler principle.
- Johannes Stark

In my view the structure of the whole atom was that of an individual,
with all its parts interconnected, and the emission
of a spectral line appeared to me to be the result
of the coherence and co-operation of several electric quanta.
- Johannes Stark

We have learnt through experience that when an electrical
ray strikes the surface of an atom,
an electron, and in some circumstances a second and even a third electron,
can be detached.
- Johannes Stark

At the head of these new discoveries and insights comes
the establishment of the facts that electricity is
composed of discrete particles of equal size,
or quanta, and that light is an electromagnetic wave motion.
- Johannes Stark

Many scientists will have to contribute to the solution of the great problem;
they will have to follow up and measure all those phenomena
in which the atomic structure is directly expressed.
- Johannes Stark

An external electric field, meeting it and passing through it,
affects the negative as much as the positive quanta of the atom,
and pushes the former to one side, and the latter in the other direction.
- Johannes Stark

If the experimental physicist has already done a great
deal of work in this field,
nevertheless the theoretical physicist has still hardly
begun to evaluate the experimental material which may
lead him to conclusions about the structure of the atom.
- Johannes Stark

Along a series of lines running from longer to shorter
wavelengths the effect of the electric field becomes
greater as the serial numbers increase -
that is,
as the wavelength decreases.
- Johannes Stark

With this in mind, for some twenty years I have set
myself as my particular task the experimental investigation
of the connexion between change in the structure and
change in the spectra of chemical atoms.
- Johannes Stark

The most common and most important result of them is
that the nature and size of the effect on corresponding
series of different elements are largely an expression
of the peculiarity of their atomic structure -
or,
at least, of the structure of the surface.
- Johannes Stark

Moreover, the abundance of chemical compounds and their
importance in daily life hindered the chemist from
investigating the question,
in what does the individuality of the atoms of different elements consist.
- Johannes Stark

For under certain conditions the chemical atoms emit
light waves of a specific length or oscillation frequency -
their familiar characteristic spectra -
and these can come in the form of electromagnetic waves
only from accelerated electric quanta.
- Johannes Stark

The discovery of various phenomena has led to a recognition
of the fact that the chemical atom is an individual
which again is itself made up of several units into a selfcontained whole.
- Johannes Stark

The magnetic cleavage of the spectral lines is dependent
on the size of the charge of the electron,
or, more accurately, on the ratio between the mass
and the charge of the electron.
- Pieter Zeeman

What appears spectral today will be natural tomorrow.
- Franz Marc

On the basis of Lorentz's theory, if we limit ourselves
to a single spectral line,
it suffices to assume that each atom (or molecule)
contains a single moving electron.
- Pieter Zeeman

Science is spectral analysis.
Art is light synthesis.
- Karl Kraus

Modern thought has transferred the spectral character
of Death to the notion of time itself.
Time has become Death triumphant over all.
- John Berger

How does one kill fear, I wonder? How do you shoot
a specter through the heart,
slash off its spectral head, take it by its spectral throat?
- Joseph Conrad

I visited a scientist who had a helmet with magnetic
fields controlled by computer sequences that could
profoundly affect your mood and your perceptions.
- Douglas Trumbull

I totally related to Cole Porter's magnetic pull to
any piano that was in the room,
which he was famous for doing, as was Gershwin.
You couldn't drag them away from a piano.
- Kevin Kline

I think it has sullied his presidency.
As brilliant a politician as Bill Clinton is,
as magnetic a personality as he can be,
there is one little screw loose somewhere.
- Morley Safer

Conscience is our magnetic compass; reason our chart.
- Joseph Cook

A grocer is attracted to his business by a magnetic
force as great as the repulsion which renders it odious to artists.
- Honore de Balzac

In the absence of a magnetic field the period of all
these oscillations is the same.
But as soon as the electron is exposed to the effect of a magnetic field,
its motion changes.
- Pieter Zeeman

The application of a strong magnetic field enables
the measurement of the energy of the most penetrating
particles to be carried out,
and the method may be capable of still further extension and improvement.
- Victor Francis Hess

Faith is not a notion, but a real strong essential hunger,
an attracting or magnetic desire of Christ,
which as it proceeds from a seed of the divine nature in us,
so it attracts and unites with its like.
- William Law

It's - as opposed to tape where you have a magnetic
tape that's excited by frequencies that you hit,
digital was a process where musical sounds are transferred
to numbers and stored as numbers.
- Herb Alpert

Listening is a magnetic and strange thing,
a creative force.
The friends who listen to us are the ones we move toward.
When we are listened to, it creates us,
makes us unfold and expand.
- Karl A. Menninger

I remember the difficulty we had in the beginning replacing
magnetic cores in memories and eventually we had both
cost and performance advantages.
But it wasn't at all clear in the beginning.
- Gordon Moore

According to well-known electrodynamic laws,
an electron moving in a magnetic field is acted upon
by a force which runs perpendicular to the direction
of motion of the electron and to the direction of the magnetic field,
and whose magnitude is easily determined.
- Pieter Zeeman

Words can have no single fixed meaning.
Like wayward electrons, they can spin away from their
initial orbit and enter a wider magnetic field.
No one owns them or has a proprietary right to dictate how they will be used.
- David Lehman

Iron which is brought near a spiral of copper wire,
traversed by an electrical current, becomes magnetic,
and then attracts other pieces of iron,
or a suitably placed steel magnet.
- Hermann von Helmholtz

It was not simply out of a spirit of contradiction
that I exposed a light source to magnetic forces.
The idea came to me during an investigation of the
effect discovered by Kerr on light reflected by magnetic mirrors.
- Pieter Zeeman

We studied the light source in the direction of the magnetic force,
we perforated the poles of the magnet;
but even in the direction of the magnetic lines of
force we found that our result was confirmed.
- Pieter Zeeman

I visited the Gymnasium in The Hague and passed my
final examination (in the sciences section) in 1943.
- Simon van der Meer

When President Jiang Zemin visited India in 1996,
the two sides decided that they would jointly build
a constructive partnership of cooperation oriented
towards the 21st century.
- Li Peng

but I've been lucky to have visited most of them before,
