Heisenburg essays

Heisenburg essays On first discovery of; Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle, one might be tempted to see it as applicable to the world. Of abstract, as well as abstract scientific research in some ivy covered campus of some high tech partial accelerator laboratory, here were one may conjure up mad scientific blowing electrons to pieces in the hopes of answer of the universe. The Uncertainty Principle is, basically, summed up in this statement: The more precisely the position of an object is determined, the less precisely the momentum is known in this instant, and vice versa. What does this mean? First of all, it means that if you observe a moving object, you cannot both decide at what speed it is moving, and the precise location, which it is at. If you measure one of them, you can't measure the other correctly. This implies that there is an uncertainty (hence the name of the principle) about one of the two properties. Well, you might ask, does it really matter? Consider this: if you know that an electron is moving at a definite speed, the uncertainty principle says that you can't possibly know where it is. And here comes the tricky part, since you don't know where it is, it may possibly be anywhere. There is a small possibility that the electron may exist at any given point in the universe at the moment you are trying to observe it. Also, in Hiesenburges uncertainty principal, the second law of thermodynamics runs parallel with this particular topic. The second law of thermodynamics asks the ancient question about things going wrong in our lives, has surprisingly simple answers in modern basic chemistry. (Even things happening to us which cause that painful cry, why me? Why Me?) Still more important to ones philosophy about life, these chemical ideas can and may startle us into seeing and believing how fortunate we all are: that things dont go wrong more often! Well talk mainly about down-to-earth things, such as common...
