    The erase of quantum states by measurement

    Oh alright thanks, the fact that it doesn't make 'sense' I can understand because I have seen a lot of things in quantum mechanics that are....shall we say.... 'spooky' However, I thank you for that link its very helpful! Thanks, Al

    The erase of quantum states by measurement

    I was reading this article, http://www.nature.com/news/2009/090122/full/news.2009.50.html, and it was talking about how they 'teleported' a Ytterbium ion (Yb+) and mid-way through the article it said that they had to destroy the quantum state of the original Ytterbium ion and they did that by...

    Superluminal Neutrino Breaks SR and GR ?

    So is it yes, no, or is it yet to be confirmed??? (instead of sorting out all answers in that thread)

    Photon not actually massless

    Oh ok yeah that makes sense, well thank you! Thanks, Al

    Photon not actually massless

    Because light bends due to gravity, as can be seen in Gravitational Lensing, if gravity responds to mass and light is bent by gravity, does that not imply that the photon is NOT 100% massless?? That the photon indeed has a very tiny amount of mass?? Because if light bends due to gravity, then...

    Superluminal Neutrino Breaks SR and GR ?

    Superluminal Neutrino Breaks SR and GR...??? I have reading a lot of articles and editorials about apparent neutrinos that went faster than the speed of light by 60 nanoseconds, I read some that say yes and no, so I'm a bit confused. So is it true?? Are there neutrinos that went faster than the...

    Quick question of Einstein Field Equations

    Thank you Mark M your answer is extremely helpful. But why is the speed of light (c) included in the second EFE with the cosmological constant???

    Quick question of Einstein Field Equations

    I have seen and read a few different versions of the Einstein field equations (EFE). For example; R_{\mu\nu} - \frac{1}{2}g_{\mu\nu}R = - 8\piGT_{\mu\nu} , R_{\mu\nu} - \frac{1}{2}g_{\mu\nu}R + g_{\mu\nu}\Lambda = \frac{8 \pi G}{c^4}T_{\mu\nu} , and 8\piT_{\mu\nu} = G_{\mu\nu} So which one is...

    Oh alright, thanks everyone for the great help! Thanks, Al

    Non-Euclidean Space

    Oh ok, thank you very much lavinia, you answered all of my questions regarding the natural existence of Euclidean geometry! Now, I have one last question, if Euclidean geometry essentially does not exist, then is pi (∏) still practically useful, because all circles are generally spherical...

    Non-Euclidean Space

    Thank you daveb, that explanation is very helpful!! :D When I say 'naturally' I'm not sure how much simpler to say it, does Euclidean Geometry occur naturally; is it apart of nature anywhere in this universe?? Because when in the presence of a gravitational field (force), space is...

    Non-Euclidean Space

    Can someone explain to me in detail, why the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter is not equal to pi in non-Euclidean space!! Also, does Euclidean Geometry exist naturally in this universe?? Thanks, Al

    The God Equation

    How do you know? I need some proof

    The God Equation

    Is there really such thing as the god equation, like is it a real equation or just made up??(Hl x π / Ω = C) If so, what does it represent??

    Empty space of Atoms

    Oh well that answers my question! So the space inside atoms is not empty, excellent. Thanks, Al

    E=mc^2 units

    Ah ok now that explanation makes a lot of sense thanks. Al

    Empty space of Atoms

    I disagree, from what I've read currently, it looks like there is NO SPACE that is empty. There's always some minute factor or field within it, either at rest or active. This would be where dark matter and dark energy come into play.

    E=mc^2 units

    Oh alright so the unit would be Joule. Thanks all, Al
  20. A

    E=mc^2 units

    Oh ok so the unit would be J/kg, no? Or would it just be J, because I read that it might be J/kg, so which one??
  21. A

    E=mc^2 units

    When solving with E=mc^2 what units should I use in the answer?? For example: (if I have an object with a mass of 43kg) E=mc^2 E=(43kg)(299792458m/s)^2 E=3.86464727 × 10^18 Now here's my problem, do I include units of J/kg (joules per kilogram) or eV (electron volts)?? If someone could...

    Empty space of Atoms

    I say "purely empty" because "empty" has been used to describe a vacuum and yet the vacuum is not empty, like purely empty. There are some things inside, so I see that writing "purely empty" is showing that something is or might be purely empty and not used lightly as "empty" has been used. But...

    Empty space of Atoms

    Alright well thank you for your help all, I now understand that the space in the atoms is actually not purely empty, nor is there a purely empty area. Thanks, Al

    Empty space of Atoms

    So the vacuum is actually filled with certain mathematical and quantum fields, vacuum energy, and possibly dark matter and dark energy, no?
  25. A

    Empty space of Atoms

    Oh, well is it true to say that there is no real empty space, because quantum field theory suggests that there are quantum fields that pervade the universe, the vacuum is just a place where the fields and their particles are at rest, no?
  26. A

    Empty space of Atoms

    So you're saying its truly a vacuum?? There's no energy fluctuations within it or some such, its just a blank vacuum? (And yes I know what "empty" means, no need to be condescending.)

    Empty space of Atoms

    I've always heard that atoms are 99.9999996% empty space, now I am wondering is the empty space between the orbiting electrons and the nuclei just empty; a vacuum...?? My question is: What is in the empty space of the atom?(for I doubt it is actually purely empty) What is in the space between...

    Ohhhhhh now I get it, well thank you very much, you have answered my question.

    My question is simple: Are there any massless

    Oh I see. That is interesting. So then there really are not any massless particles that exist?

    My question is simple: Are there any massless

    My question is simple: Are there any massless My question is simple: [B]Are there any massless particles? Because I've now found out that the photon, which I always thought to be massless, actually has an extremely small amount of mass. It is something along the lines of a billionth of a...
