At what point does quantum physics cease and general relativity take over. Where is the boundary? Is it a quantum of mass?
The boundary between Quantum and Relativity is the point at which the principles and concepts of quantum mechanics (the study of matter and energy at a small scale) and general relativity (the study of gravity and the structure of the universe) overlap and cannot be reconciled.
It is difficult to unify Quantum and Relativity because they are based on fundamentally different principles and mathematical frameworks. Quantum mechanics describes the behavior of particles at a microscopic level, while general relativity describes the behavior of large-scale objects and the structure of space-time.
Some proposed theories for unifying Quantum and Relativity include string theory, loop quantum gravity, and quantum field theory. These theories attempt to reconcile the differences between the two theories by incorporating concepts from both.
If Quantum and Relativity can be successfully unified, it would provide a more complete understanding of the universe and how it works. It could also potentially lead to new technologies and advancements in fields such as cosmology and particle physics.
Some challenges in testing the boundary between Quantum and Relativity include the high energy and complex technology required to conduct experiments, as well as the difficulty in creating conditions that accurately represent the extreme environments in which these theories are applicable.
