i wondered at the idea that calculus works for continuous functions and in reality fundamental quantities are discontinuous. For example energy or an electron can't asume all values. Therefore isn't there a conflict when we work on a equation like dE/dt or something similar which involve calculus of discountinous things ?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
