Roughly - Classical mechanics deals with quantities on a macroscopic scale and quantum mechanics deals with quantities on a sub atomic scale.Originally posted by shankar
can any one tell me the difference between classical mechanics and quantum mechanics??
Er... no. A key conclusion of QM is that waves and particles are just different sides of the same coin. Mathematically, Schrodinger wave equations are ultimately equivalent to quantum particle equations. The schrodinger equation gets most limelight because it is generally considered as easier, and making more sense.Quantum is all about waves, the dynamics of all things is determined by waves.
