Episode 10 — Quantum Mechanics

Quantum Cat ThumbNow it’s time for some much odder physics than you’re likely used to — we’re getting down to the sub-atomic level with quantum mechanics. This week’s episode is the third in a series on post-Newtonian physics — and none require you to do any math. If you’re new to the podcast, you’ll want to check out episodes 4 (Physics: A Brief History), 6 (Special Relativity), and 8 (General Relativity) first, just to put this material in context.

If you’re not subscribed to the podcast, you can listen to the episode via an inline player (Flash required) here:

    In many ways QM is not waired at all. It is simply a formulation of the fact that the matter is stabie and ordered when tied together with forces and shows an arbitrarynes when this is not so. Classical physics did not have any formulation for this. But QM does not give any deeper explanations.
