Hey everyone, I'm having some trouble finding the discrepancies between general relativity and quantum mechanics. Could someone please give me a dummy's version of how the two theories contradict eachother. In general, I know that general relativity suggests that the prescence of mass and energy warp the curvurature of space-time. Also, quantum mechanics suggests the existence of discrete states as well as many other things. In what aspects do the two theories contradict eachother. The most watered down version you can give me is perfectly fine. I'm an engineer and have not studied most of these more theoretical concepts. I've only been exposed to very very basic quantum mechanics and special relativity. Thank you!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
