1. Time in different dimension

Is ten minute for an observer in different dimension, with the same speed relatively, same for every observer?
2. Discrete Spacetime.

I agree with your opinion. So how do they travel? Do a matter, in Quantum/Subquantum scale, actually travel through higher dimension?
3. Discrete Spacetime.

Since spacetime is discrete at the Quantum/Sub-quantum scale, is it possible that something that occupied a discrete spacetime move to the other discrete through straight line?
4. Wave-Particle Duality

Does this describe wave particle duality correctly? 'Whether observed or not, a matter's wave particle duality still persist. The wave and matter characteristic cannot be isolated: A matter cannot be a wave sometimes and particle the other times. It must be both at anytime. However, when we...
5. Quantitized dimension

A simple analogy will be the 'paint' aplication in the windows. Let say you draw a square. And you click the option zoom. You will find that the square is consist of many small square. The small square is the smallest unit. I don't know why should(or shouldn"t)2-3 be ture either. This...
6. Quantitized dimension

Recently I was thinking about these statement: 1. Dimension is as if a 3-D graph, which every coordinate is the smallest unit for dimension. 2. Volume of an object is a whole number multiply the volume of the dimension unit. 3. Distance is a whole number multiply the length of the dimension...
7. Destructive interference of light

This is what I think: When two photons destructively interfere, the wave amplitude become zero. However, the two photon still exist, and the energy didn't change, as frequency of light is not affected. (energy of light = hf) Someone please correct me if I am wrong. :smile:
8. Observation definition

Can someone tell me the definition of observation?

10. Wave-Particle Duality

This is my understanding towards wave particle duality: Matter is neither wave or particle.The matter position can only be determined when we observed the matter. When the matter is not observed, the matter can be in any position, and have a wave function. So, I make the following deduction...
11. Photon s energy

Photon"s energy When photons trasfer energy to electron, can it transfer only part of its energy and not whole?
12. Does the electron teleport ?

Does the electron "teleport"? Let say there's an electron gun in the box as if Schrodinger Cat experiment. The electron is in position A. Since electron behave like wave in this box, the electron can be in any position after the box is close. I don't think that the electron will interact with...
13. What is a black hole in 4th dimension looks like?

If there is a black hole in the 4th dimension, how will it looks like in the observer in 3rd dimension?
14. Teleportation-possible or not?

Thanks for the information, but what is local conservation laws?
15. What does a researcher do?

What does a : a) Theoratical Scientist b) Experimental Scientist c) Computer Modeling Scientist do?
16. Teleportation-possible or not?

Let say our dimension is a 4Dimension graph, and every position is a coordinate. If a matter disappear in its original coordinate and reappear in another coordinate(without travelling), does this contradic with any physics laws or theories? In other word, are there any physics facts that show...
17. Can Dimension and Time be quantized?

Can Dimension and Time be quantized? For example, distance and time is a whole number multiple a smallest unit. p/s: I don't have any facts to support my question, so this is possibly one of my illogical thought :smile:
18. Where is the electron?

May I know that if the electron will interact with matter in the box?(for example: the detector0
19. Where is the electron?

To make myself clearer, let's imagine the same apparatus used by the Schrodinger Cat Paradox(without the cat and the poison). An electron is shot from position A. It is moving to the other side of the box. Now, the quesion is, when we open the box and observe the electron after a long period...
20. Why would I die when I jump out of a plane?

The equation is: Ft=m(v-u) So, if you have higher velotion, you will receive greater force when you hit the floor
21. Photon and its momentum

Momentum can be categorised under electromagnet force, and electromagnetic force carrier is photon. But photon have momentum. Isn't this paradoxical?
22. What is in the strange point?

When universe is still a strange point, what is in the universe? (asume big bang did happen and universe was created in a certain time)
23. Alternative way to replace CFC?

Since CFC is hazardous to our atmosphere, are there any better substitute to replaced CFC in fridge, air conditioner etc.?
24. Beta decay of a neutron

I am getting more and more confused now. :confused: There are so many answer that I don't know which is true and which is not. Anyway, can somebody summarise the above replies in an easier way? I don't really understand QMT :shy: . Does the electron come from the nucleus, or from the virtual...
25. Beta decay of a neutron

When an atom experience beta decay, will the atom become ion? This is my deduction: 1.An atom will release an electron in beta decay. 2.The electron is replaced by the electon produced from the decay of neutron. 3.However, the proton number increase by one. It still need one more electron...
26. Why light diffract?

Why waves, such as light, will diffract when they pass through a small hole or slid?
27. Potential of a charged plate

Quote: “We can see from our definition that the positive plate in Fig. 23-1 is at a higher potential than the negative plate..." I saw this statement in a book. May I know how to calculate the potential of a charged plate?
28. Photon's role

Photon doesn't interact with external force and move with light speed. But why can it act as force carrier, play a role in photoelectric etc.?
29. What exactly is electric field?

In what way can we quantize the field? :confused:
30. What Is Needed To Make An Intelligent Species?

Being inteligent is a great advantage for surviving. But actually, what is the determine factor to be inteligent? :rolleyes:
31. What exactly is electric field?

Hmm...If I am not wrong, energy should be brought by some force carrier particle. So, besides photon, are there any other massless particle that made up electric field?
32. What exactly is electric field?

Recently I am reading about electirc and electromagnet. I found electric field and the field line a bit confusing. What forms the field, or the field line? Is it photon? Secondly, why must electron orbit around proton, and not proton orbit the electron? :confused: Thanks in avanced.
33. Why do we age?

You mean genetic? Or god?
34. E=mc^2 derivation

Can you explain in detail? I found myself difficult to understand the statement.
35. Does science career suit me?

I like science(at least I think so), but I don't like every part of it equally. For example, I like Relativity and QM, but I don't really like mechanic. I like to ask question and do experiment, but I wonder whether I suit the research career, or which science field. Are there any test or guide...
36. Evolution Factor

Beside mutation, molecular drive, and variation of genetic, what are the factors which triggled the evolution?
37. The Biggest Brain on Earth: Examining Creature Sizes

Just wondering...what is the factor to determine cleverness, and how?
38. Website for self-learning purpose needed

Your guys physics knowledge is so awesome! I am a secondary student, and I wish to learn more about physic. Can anyone suggest a website to me?
39. Why photon never stop?

Please forgive me. I really have a poor knowledge in Quantum Physic and misunderstood your statement. Sorry. :frown:
40. Does light wave never collaspe?

1. Observation means interaction in QM. 2. Photon doesn't interact with gravity or electromagnetic force. 3. Thus, light wave is never observed and will therefore maintain superposition. Is this deduction correct?
41. Why photon never stop?

Thanks a lot. So, what Zapper trying to say is the photon is defined as stopped if it turn into energy. When an electron transfrom from a higher energy state to a lower one, isn't the electron emit photons? Where do the photons come from?
42. Why photon never stop?

I know photon has no mass, and have energy 0/0, which mean photon can have any energy. But photon can interact with matter. It also can be absorbed by electron. But these interaction, and the fraction never stop photon, nor do photon lose it energy. Why?
43. How do we control our thinking?

For example, when you are doing an essay, you must get some idea to write. Thus you send an impulse through the nerve cell to the brain. But what send the impulse, and how is it controlled?
44. Why light go straight?

In normal condition, light always go straight. But since photon move randomly, why must they go straight?
45. Communication among animals

As we all know, animal can communicate with each other with body language, sounds, etc. just like human. But does every animal of the same species communicate the same way? For example, are cats in different areas communicate the same way?
46. What make system different from environment?

When I was reading about QM, I always saw the word system and environment. What differentiate them?
47. Black Hole Gravity: Mass vs Distance

Thank you kirovman, but...g=k/r, what does k and r represent? (Sorry, I am just a secondary school student)
48. Conducting electricity

Talking about lightning, is it possible for human to simulate lightining in order to generate electricity?
49. Black Hole Gravity: Mass vs Distance

How is gravity affected by the interaction of the particles?
50. When do livings acquire the ability to think?

If I am not wrong, the most primitive life is in molecular form. Somehow, they acquire the ability to duplicate themselves, and get better and better through evolution. But, how, and when do livings acquire the ability to think?(In other words, acquire a brain)
