In past chapters, we concentrated mostly on the classical idea that particles are tiny balls that interact according to the rules of classical mechanics. This view was fairly successful up until the start of the twentieth century, but not completely. In Section 5.6, we saw that a classical view could not explain the specific heat’s stepped dependence on temperature, shown in Figure 5.6.
