I have been reading some on QM and its quantization of energy and angular momentum (is this the same as spin?). But something I do not understand is the actual process of quantizational movement (which is tied to the quantization of energy).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I can't understand how a subatomic particle, the electron for instance, can 'jump' different levels of energy. When this deals with a change of movement, does this imply that, when electrons take quantum leaps, they 'teleport' to their orbital? If energy quantization is true, then movement and momentum quantization would have to be true?

As a though expirament, let's say there are two, independant boxes A and B. Hypothetically, there is a ball in box A, which is higher than box B. Let's say the ball wishes to move from A to B. But since these boxes (more like 'areas' in this expirament) are indepedant, separated, and in different places, then would the ball's movement literally be something like a teleportation from A to B? If so, can this process at all be described? If not, why?

And...does this strange phenomenon have anything to do with quantum teleportation? Any answers are well appreciated.
