Quantum Physics And Quantum Mechanics For Beginners: The Introduction Guide For Beginners Who Flunked Maths And Science In Plain Simple English (Paperback)
Are you intrigued by quantum physics, but turned off by the complexities, the mathematics and the formulas?
Did your education in mathematics and physics leave you with more questions than answers? Are you fascinated by the universe, and want to know about its basic components? If so, these may be the questions you want answers to:
❏ Do you want to learn about the giants of quantum theory, including Max Planck and Albert Einstein? Do you want to get in on the inspiring Bohr-Einstein debates on a "grand unifying theory" to bring together quantum mechanics and general relativity theory?
❏ Is it possible to look inside the atom, deep inside protons and neutrons to discover the quarks that give these particles their electromagnetic charge?
❏ Is wave-particle duality a real phenomenon? Can light be both a wave and a particle?
❏ How about the dark sector - the dark matter and dark energy that make up 95% of the universe? Could ghostly neutrinos solve the mystery?
❏ Do you want to know about string and superstring theory, and whether strings can unify the four known forces in a unified field theory?
❏ What about Schr dinger's famous cat experiment? Can a particle be in two places at once? Can a cat be both dead and alive?
❏ How about the concept of entanglement, with particles interacting at a distance? How do entanglement and superposition make quantum computing possible?
❏ Are we alone in our universe, or are there parallel universes "out there" that may have copies of ourselves? Theories on the idea of a multiverse are creative, and maybe close to reality. Or, maybe not.
If these questions are your questions, you are in the right place. This book was written to make quantum physics clear and understandable for those who find the study of math and science challenging. Come share in the amazing discoveries that are defining the subatomic world within the vast, expanding universe and everything it contains.
We'll begin at the beginning with the Big Bang, 13.8 billion years ago, and conclude with quantum mechanics' most recent breakthrough, the confirming discovery of the elusive Higgs boson.
Ready? Let's begin the exploration of quantum science, and have a good time along the way.
