double slit experement
« on: 17/01/2009 02:09:13 »
I'm a bit confused i have a idea about the double slit explaining the path way for the electron (or particle)
and it don't include the imposable or a cat in a box,
but i have only just joined this forum and from what i see i wonder if this is the right place,
i just looked at a question on some one finding worms up on a roof and the 2 replies were with out knowing any thing on worms
I'm the damp worms can climb walls can climb out of a bucket so to get up a drain pipe is no problem and i use to get worms out of drains for fishing,some drains have filters to catch leaf mold etc and worms get washed in there and are happy with all the rotting leaves,
my problem with the double slit experiment it seems as to many people believe in the electron some how going through the wall and i know it to be rubbish,but who will listen to me when i cant spell

part 2

Double slit experiment !!!ΨΦβωψλΔ  :D  ;D  :D ;)

Yo!! well quantum world is really the world of impossible .... you see generally in our daily life we use Newtonian Mechanics  to understand the world around us and also we use special and general  relativity  of Einstein .. but when you enter into quantum world like size of atom  .. well you can't use Newton's laws of motion .. cos quantum world  of space and time is unstable, weird laws of physics happens . so, you need to apply new laws of physics like higher dimension and in this way electrons exist many places @ once ... If group of electrons  or small particles like protons travel into double slit well experiments have shown that electron or proton will travel both the slits ... like they form wave pattern  when u do this experiment !!!... well  this quantum world is full of surprises .. so, when scientist fixed instruments to observe what's going on when electrons pass through slits ??? ..  so, when they observe it .. it brakes down into double slits and it loses wave pattern ...

so, scientist made conclusion that ... light or electrons act like both particle and wave nature ...
Heisenberg uncertainty principle states that the values of certain pairs of conjugate variables (position and momentum, for instance) cannot both be known with arbitrary precision 
it says that u can't know both @ a time like position and velocity of electron as if they exist everywhere at same time.........

and yeah it don't include  a cat in a box.. it's just a probability of quantum time .. well

Schrödinger's cat is a thought experiment, often described as a paradox, devised by Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger in 1935. It illustrates what he saw as the problem of the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics being applied to everyday objects. The thought experiment presents a cat that might be alive or dead, depending on an earlier random event. In the course of developing this experiment, he coined the term Verschränkung (entanglement).

yeah as u said double slit experiment it seems as to many people believe in the electron some how going through the wall and i know it to be rubbish,but who will listen to me when i cant spell

yeah they can't go through walls .. right but space and time of quantum world is unstable so, u can't expect an electron @ one position .. so they travel through higher dimensions according to string theory but they can teleport them self anywhere ... depending on there own space and time ....
