Hula Hoop Electron Quantum Magic

First, watch the hula hoop: LED Hoop Demo – [] Particle physicists have some difficulty describing the orbital mechanics of electrons inside an atom. Erwin Schrodinger wrote an equation that describes the electron as a wave form. But that equation seems to imply that there are more than three dimensions and it seems to be […]

1900 – Pauli – bio

Wolfgang Pauli was born in Vienna, Austria in 1900 and was a physicist known as one of the creators of quantum mechanics. He particularly become known for the “Pauli Exclusion Principle” which states that no two electrons can be in the same quantum state at the same time. PRECURSOR: 1831 – Maxwell 1838 – Mach […]

1887 – Schrodinger – bio

Erwin Schrodinger was born in Vienna, Austria in 1887 and was a physicist who made major contributions to quantum mechanics. The Schrodinger wave equation describes the state of an atom, including the electrons as mathematical waves. It was later demonstrated that Heisenberg’s matrix mechanics and the wave function were describing the same thing. PRECURSOR: 1777 […]
