General relativity and quantum mechanics

In summary, the conversation discusses the verification of quantum physics through experiments. It is mentioned that there is no single experiment that can verify all aspects of quantum physics, as it takes multiple experiments to thoroughly test its predictions. Examples of experiments that test different aspects of quantum physics are provided, such as the Stern-Gerlach experiment, the double-slit experiment, and the Bell test experiments. The conversation concludes by suggesting the use of Google to find more experiments that test predictions of quantum physics.

hello,
i want to know if there an experience that shows how can we verify the quantum physics that studies everything that is subatomic up to quark ,and thank u again

You mean "experiment", right? There's no single experiment that verifies all of it. Each experiment tests the accuracy of some small subset of a theory's predictions, so it takes hundreds of experiments to do it really thoroughly. If you want more information, you will have to ask a much more specific question.

yea,i meant an experiment like ,so can u please ,quote one of these experiments

like an experiment called "Gravity Probe B" which as its objective is to verify the Lense-Thirring effect,so, there is an experiment that shows how we can verify the quantum physics that studies everything that is subatomic up to quark ,and thank u again
 

Related to General relativity and quantum mechanics

1. What is the difference between general relativity and quantum mechanics?

General relativity and quantum mechanics are two separate theories that explain different aspects of the physical world. General relativity describes the behavior of large objects in the universe, such as planets and galaxies, while quantum mechanics explains the behavior of subatomic particles.

2. Can general relativity and quantum mechanics be unified?

There have been attempts to unify general relativity and quantum mechanics into a single theory, such as string theory and loop quantum gravity. However, a complete unification has not yet been achieved and remains an ongoing area of research in theoretical physics.

3. How does general relativity explain the curvature of spacetime?

According to general relativity, the presence of mass and energy in the universe causes spacetime to curve. The more massive an object is, the greater its curvature of spacetime. This curvature is what we experience as the force of gravity.

4. What is the uncertainty principle in quantum mechanics?

The uncertainty principle states that the more precisely we know the position of a particle, the less precisely we can know its momentum, and vice versa. This is due to the inherent probabilistic nature of quantum mechanics.

5. How does general relativity explain the bending of light by massive objects?

In general relativity, light is affected by the curvature of spacetime caused by massive objects. As it travels through this curved spacetime, light appears to bend due to the warping of its path. This phenomenon is known as gravitational lensing.
