What is Quantum Mechanics?
A branch of Physics which
deals with physical
phenomena at microscopic
Black body radiation
Instability of classical atoms
Quantization of certain physical properties
Why Do We Need Quantum
How does a quantum system
A set of mathematical
maximally describes a
quantum system but
Types of quantum
1. Pure quantum states
2. Mixed quantum states
Why do particles behave as
Where does the relation of
momentum, p, Plank’s constant, h, and
wavelength come from?
How does the double slit experiment show
can’t we measure position and
momentum of a particle simultaneously?
What constitutes a measurement?
What does the Uncertainty Principle predict?
If a physical system may be in some
configuration, and if the physical system
could be in another configuration then it is in
a state which is a superposition of the two.
What if the system is definitely in one state?
Why should there be quantum superposition?
How do we know the intermediate character?
What are the predictions of quantum
A system stops being in the superposition of
states and becomes either one or the other
when an observation takes place.
Schrodinger’s cat paradox
It occurs when particles interact physically and then
become separated; the type of interaction is such that
each resulting member of a pair is properly described
by the same quantum mechanical description (state)
which is indefinite in terms of factors such as
position, momentum, spin, polarization.
Applications of entanglement
Super dense coding
A process by which a qubit (the smallest unit of
quantum information) can be transmitted exactly
from one location to another, without the qubit
being transmitted through the intervening space.
