B Why quantum physics like a math theory till a physics theory

    why quantum physics like a math theory till a physics theory,it never describe a of phoneme ?
    it write equation between many Hypothetical objects!

    I don't understand your question. Quantum theory is the most comprehensive physical theory today. It is very well tested and explains correctly a wast amount of phenomena from elementary particle physics, nuclear physics, atomic and molecular physics, condensed-matter physics, and quantum optics and electronics. Of course, it's very mathematical but it is very well founded on observational physics.

    It describes in great detail and with exquisite accuracy the behavior of atomic and subatomic particles.

    [EDIT] Beat me to it.

    Unless you typed this via telepathy, the VERY device you are using works due to quantum mechanics. This device looks hypothetical to you?

    sorry,my mean was it never portraits a phoneme ?real image of phoneme!

    I'm still confused about what you mean by "phoneme". Here's what I understand by it:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoneme

    Or are you really talking about quantum-mechanical analysis of human speech? :wideeyed:

    you are right,Phenomenon not phenome , i was wrong excuse me ,thanks for attention.

    Ah, "phenomenon". Now it's obvious to me, but before this, it wasn't. Besides physics, I'm also interested in languages, so I got stuck on that word. Carry on...

    You need a camera or any other apparatus with similar function to capture a phenomenon, not a quantum physics. Direct observation of atomic and molecular systems may not be achievable with today's technology, but researchers worldwide have devised various ways to observe the "interior" of atoms and molecules indirectly, and their measurements agree well with the theories of quantum physics up to the uncontrollable sources of error.

    I think he's asking about practical uses of quantum theory, like computer processors or something like that.

    stackprogramer, can you try to clarify your question? I recognize that English is probably not your first language, but it would help if you could explain your question more. Can you give us a specific example of a phenomenon that is related to your question?

    Maybe it's the same kind of critique Newton got for his grav.theory, that the underlying mechanism is lacking in the theory and it is more of a mathematical description.

    really i am not a Physicist,i am only likes physics and math.ok i sended an example
    you guessed right.

    hi dears ,thanks for your attention ,
    it is an example.
    i explain more now.we have memory flash 16 Gigabyte.every one know we use transistor collection cell (like flip-flop) for saving a bit,size of our flash is about a thumb.16 giga is 16 *10^9*8 bit,if we have a theory ,that illustrate motion of electron,like determine spin of a electron.wait ....
    now we have for a 1cm^3 Si ,we have about 4*10 ^22 atom,if we use atom for saving byte ,
    now we have more 10 ^22 byte i.e. 10^10 TB for a mini flash ,its has not any limitation.
    we a day or Tomorrow's need like a theory that illustrate every one,and ..............

    Thank you that you tolerate me, goodluck

    @stackprogramer, I'm going to criticize you for being lazy. You could have easily googled something like "applications of quantum mechanics" and you would have been inundated by tons of examples of real "phenomena" that can only be accurately described by it. The whole field of solid state physics, which is responsible for your computers, mobile phones, etc.. sprang out of quantum mechanics!

    [Added by another mentor] I think we'd better leave this closed because the language barrier appears to be too high for understanding the OP's questions.
