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...
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...
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...
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:
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...
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...
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 physic laws or theories? In other word, are there any physics facts that show...
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:
To make myself clearer, lets 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...
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...
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...
“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?
