[KINDLE] ❂ In Search of Schrödingers Cat By John Gribbin – Thomashillier.co.uk

In Search of Schrödingers Cat It Is So Shocking That Einstein Could Not Bring Himself To Accept It It Is So Important That It Provides The Fundamental Underpinning Of All Modern Sciences Without It, We D Have No Nuclear Power Or Nuclear Bombs, No Lasers, No TV, No Computers, No Science Of Molecular Biology, No Understanding Of DNA, No Genetic Engineering At All John Gribbin Tells The Complete Story Of Quantum Mechanics, A Truth Far Stranger Than Any Fiction He Takes Us Step By Step Into An Ever Bizarre And Fascinating Place Requiring Only That We Approach It With An Open Mind He Introduces The Scientists Who Developed Quantum Theory He Investigates The Atom, Radiation, Time Travel, The Birth Of The Universe, Superconductors And Life Itself And In A World Full Of Its Own Delights, Mysteries And Surprises, He Searches For Schr Dinger S Cat A Search For Quantum Reality As He Brings Every Reader To A Clear Understanding Of The Most Important Area Of Scientific Study Today Quantum Physics.

    um i read this book i didn t read this book i read this book and didn t read this book i read this book in one universe and didn t in another this book didn t exist until i read it gribbin s great because he won t dumb down but genuinely wants you to underst...

    this book is f n awesome.i read it in highschool and then again in college because while you re reading it it s like having a really good teacher who holds your attention and makes you understand unusual ideas but as soon as you finish and put it down you re like wait, how does that work again so for me at least, i have to be reading it to maintain that state of enlightenment maybe after a certain number of reads it will stick because i am not naturally good at this sort of subject this book is f n awesome.i read it in highschool and then again in college because while you re reading it it s like having a really good teacher who holds your attention and makes you understand unusual ideas but as soon as you finish and put it down you re like wait, how does that work again so for me at least, i have to be reading it to maintain that state of enlightenment maybe after a certain number of reads it will stick because i am not naturally good at this sort of subject this book explains generally the perpl...

    Okay, so to best describe this book, I need to first describe Schrodingers cat Keep in mind that this an illustration of what Schrodinger saw as the problem with the Copenhagen idea of Quantum superposition Imagine a box with a cat inside A vial of a deadly chemical which will instantly kill the cat is placed inside with the cat, sealed so the feline is safe A hammer is set up with a rig to smash the vial but only if the following occurs A small amount of radioactive material is inside a ge Okay, so to best describe this book, I need to first describe Schrodingers cat Keep in mind that this an illustration of what Schrodinger saw as the problem with the Copenhagen idea of Quantum superposition Imagine a box with a cat inside A vial of a deadly chemical which will instantly kill the cat is placed inside with the cat, sealed so the feline is safe A hammer is set up with a rig to smash the vial but only if the following occurs A small amount of radioactive material is inside a geiger counter If an atom inside decays, it triggers the hammer and the cat dies If not the cat lives The probability of the atom breaking down is equal to the probability of it remaining intact According to the Copenhagen model, this would mean that the cat is both alive and dead inside the box until the atom is observed It was a tho...

    Gribbin seems to have a sound understanding of quantum mechanics, and his writing is rather well crafted, but sometimes I think he d rather have been a historian than a physicist The first half of the book is mostly intricate historical accounts of the key players of the story of quantum mechanics over the last century Gribbin reveals the concepts very slowly, which might not be a bad thing, so this may seem a bit tedious at first However, by the end, the concepts are clear and complete At l Gribbin seems to have a sound understanding of quantum mechanics, and his writing is rather well crafted, but sometimes I think he d rather have been a historian than a physicist The first half of the book is mostly intricate historical accounts of the key players of the story of quantum mechanics over the last century Gribbin reveals...
