The development of the atomic model
If new evidence comes along, the model gets changed. There are several other websites that describe ... quantum mechanics without us humans even noticing. It turns out that we can’t really say anything about the trajectory or position of electrons in an ...
Deepak Chopra vs. Quantum Mechanics
But do feel free to ask about quantum chemistry! :) ) Is basically what he's talking about. The idea that the workings of the human brain are somehow directly quantum-mechanical. As opposed, I'd guess, to being 'chemical' in nature. Chopra would count as ...
A New Model Of Quantum Dots: Rethinking The Electronics
To do so they used PEtot, a quantum-mechanical electronic ... the center of a 933-atom quantum dot of gallium arsenide. To replicate a realistic quantum dot, they "passivated" the atoms on its surface with fractionally charged hydrogen-like atoms ...
Why Quantum Mechanics Is Weird
Bohr got on the bandwagon by quantizing angular momentum as part of a model of the hydrogen atom. The math of all three ... understanding the world view that quantum mechanics represents. At least I do, because I'm an old enough man that I haven't got ...
