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

There has been lot many articles, write up(s) pointing out the difference between classical and quantum physics. Well, I know that there has been thousand and one articles writen on the topic, but my point is to find out the basic fundamental difference.

One point is quiet evident is that of energy. In classical mechanics we have energy varying up to any level, whereas in quantum mechanics we have energy using up to discrete level. But there is one clarification?

When we are using statistics in classical field like Maxwell-Boltzmann statistics or otherwise thousand instances where we are using statistics to find out the behavior of the system, there also we are trying to find out the predictability or the degree of randomness in that particular system. In quantum mechanics, also we are using statistics to find out the degree of randomness.

So where lies the fundamental difference?

If anybody can explain with some example, it will be very helpful.

Thanks
