This book is the fourth stage of our exploration of Quantum Mechanics in the Everyone’s Guide Series.
We first review waves and particle-wave duality. We'll revisit the Uncertaintly Principle, and discuss the Two-Slit Experiment in depth.
Then, we delve deeper into wavefunctions and explore more Quantum Mechanical mysteries: barrier penetration and spin. We’ll discover how barrier penetration allows particles to “pass through” walls, enables radioactivity, makes star shine, and powers microelectronics in all our digital devices.
Spin is a uniquely quantum mechanical property of all particles. We’ll explore how spin makes matter rigid, controls the formation of atoms and molecules, and enables lasers and superconductivity.
