## Uncertainty Principle? Wave Nature of Matter

Uncertainty principle is one of the most popular concepts of the quantum mechanics. Let me introduce a misconception about the uncertainty principle. When you are to see matter, say a particle, you need a light to be scattered off. You observe the scattered light to get an information about the particle. But the particle is

## What is quantum mechanics really all about?

For the most part, physics is a pretty straightforward discipline. While the math might be complicated, physics is often about quantifying such things as “what goes up, must come down” and “don’t play chicken with a train.” Statements like those are intuitive and pretty much everyone can get their head around them. But, over the

## Schrodinger’s Equation

According to Quantum Mechanics, all particles in the universe are described by what we call a wave function, and quantum wave functions are described by Schrodinger’s Equation. Although the behavior of all subatomic particles is inherently probabilistic, Schrodinger’s equation does not itself contain any probabilities. The probability of every possible observation is determined by the

## What Is Light?

Light, is the connection between us and the universe. Through light, we could experience distant stars and look back at the beginning of existence itself. But, what is light? In a nutshell Light, is the smallest quantity of energy that can be transported A photon, an elementary particle without a real size That can’t be

## Basic Geophysics: Reflection & Refraction

The reflection and refraction of light influence our everyday life. Here you can see a laser beam that passes through a plexiglas object. The way these optical waves change direction when they pass into another propagation medium is equal to that of seismic waves. The reflection and refraction of seismic waves allows us to explore
