Hi everybody,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

there is this question that is bugging me and since I neither seem to know enough about physics to find out the answer myself nor to have the time to acquire said knowledge I will try to ask it here.

Objects of the microscopic world famously behave in an indeterministic way. But as I understand it the effects of the quantum level indeterminacies are diminished the bigger the observed objects are. If I understand that correctly the interaction of billiard balls bouncing of each other must be deterministic. Is that so? (Quantum interference for example can be observed in a double slit experiment that involves photons or even neutrons, but not billiard balls.)

If yes, is there a border that could be made out between the realm of micro and macroscopic objects?

I am sorry for the inaccuracy of my wording. If this is a stupid or obvious question, I beg your pardon.

All the best and thank you in advance
