Understanding Quantum

5 x Thursday evenings 6:00pm - 8:30pm
7th June 2018

Book through the Sydney Observatory website or phone 9217 0111.

An 5 evening introduction to Quantum Mechanics. To help guide you into the realm of the very small the course is presented using 3D Stereo Graphics. The power of visual communication is used to make the complex mathematical models of quantum a little more comprehensible.
The Need for Quantum
The fundamentals of classical physics that are used throughout the course are outlined and the findings that led to its downfall.
The Uncertainty Principle
The techniques used by quantum to explain many common optical effects, from the double slit to butterfly wings.
The quantum behaviour for light is used to explain how light interacts with a surface.
Atomic Theory
We explore the quantum model of the atom and the spectra they produce.
States and Entanglement
In Quantum we do not know the state of something until an observation. The state changes instantaneously over space. Spooky action at a distance.
