Who Is Feynman?

Born:

– 11th May 1918

– Far Rockaway, Queens, NY

College:

– MIT

– Princeton

– Cornell (braved a snow-

storm here !)

– Caltech

Work

– Los Alamos

Feynman’s Works

The “Unconventional” approach

Other works

– QED

– The Character of the Physical Law

– Surely You’re Joking Mr. Feynman !

Quantum Mechanics as Physics Not

Philosophy

– Philosophy does not contribute to “advance”

– A “working” method

– The “Observer” issue

– Typical Feynman

Quantum Behavior:

The Interference Pattern (Bullets)

The Interference Pattern (waves)

The Interference Pattern (electrons)

The Interference Pattern (electrons

when observed !!)

The Quantum BIZARRE

determine which hole the electron passes

through that will not at the same time disturb

the electrons enough to destroy the

interference pattern”

– Heisenberg (says Feynman in his lecture)

“Logical tight-rope” walking

Quantum Mechanics Principles

2

P=φ P = Probability

Ф = Amplitude

φ = ∑ φi

i

Uncertainty

a particle to an uncertainty of Δp, then she/he

cannot at the same time know the position

more accurately than Δx = h/Δp

Uncertainty Principle “protects” quantum

mechanics

Experimental setup demo for UP

One Example of UP

po λ

∆p = po ∆θ =

B

The Size of the Atom

Spread in momentum = h/a

• a is like radius

Momentum must be of order p ~ h/a

1 2 p2 h2

Kinetic Energy = mv = =

2 2m 2ma 2

h2 e2

Total Energy = 2ma 2 − 4πε a

0

The Size of the Atom

The “Philozophigal” implications

Disturbance is necessary for consistence of

the viewpoint

Was sound made ? Vs. Was there a

sensation of sound ? – The role of a

conscious observer in a forest/physics?

“No measure” implies “No speak” is a false

implication

The basis of a science is its ability to predict
