I study biophysics, so maybe this is a sophomoric question. I've done a cursory, albeit fruitless search of the forums and the web, I think I don't know how to properly ask the question...

I was wondering if there is some sort of limit -- I would assume a given mass of an object -- where we would expect to see the quantum mechanical effects on the object begin to diminish, and classical mechanics begin to make more sense?

I would imagine the QM laws apply regardless of mass, but I suspect/know this is not true for observed effects. IE: I have to worry about the superposition of a very small particle, but not a massive one.

Can anyone enlighten me? I'm not scared of math.

Cheers,

George
