    What are some of the fundamental differences between Classical & Quantum mechanics?

    maybe if classical is an old computer or a car then quantum mechanics would be a new computer or an airplane?

    I think it is like the difference between classical (ie - Newtonian) physics and quantum physics. Something about Max Planck, and as always, there is a "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_mechanics" [Broken] about this stuff.
