QUANTUM MECHANICS EXPLAINED IN UNDER 8 MINUTES

Quantum mechanics (QM; also known as quantum physicsquantum theory, the wave mechanical model, or matrix mechanics), including quantum field theory, is a fundamental theory in physics which describes nature at the smallest scales of energy levels of atoms and subatomic particles.

Classical physics, the physics existing before quantum mechanics, describes nature at ordinary (macroscopic) scale. Most theories in classical physics can be derived from quantum mechanics as an approximation valid at large (macroscopic) scale. Quantum mechanics differs from classical physics in that energymomentumangular momentum and other quantities of a bound system are restricted to discrete values (quantization); objects have characteristics of both particles and waves (wave-particle duality); and there are limits to the precision with which quantities can be measured (uncertainty principle).

Hi Everyone, my “Quantum Mechanics for Dummies” video is one of my most popular pieces of content on this channel but at over 20 minutes long it can be a little intimidating to drive straight into so I thought I’d create a shortened version of the video.
