Quantum Phenomenon and Infinite Possibilities

Quantum Phenomenon and Infinite Possibilities | Science - Quantum Phenomenon, Possibilities & Truth | Scoop.it

I love the wondrous, magical world of quanta... having been a secondary science teacher with a love of quantum mechanics for about 25 years, I can honestly say that the quantum world explains the magic I see around me every single day... 

 

I just want to share the magic with you... :)

What the Discovery of the Higgs Means for Scientists

What the Discovery of the Higgs Means for Scientists | Science - Quantum Phenomenon, Possibilities & Truth | Scoop.it

The announcement early yesterday morning of experimental evidence for what’s presumably the Higgs particle brings a certain closure to a story I’ve watched (and sometimes been a part of) for nearly 40 years.

 

In some ways I felt like a teenager again. Hearing about a new particle being discovered. And asking the same questions I would have asked at age 15. “What’s its mass?” “What decay channel?” “What total width?” “How many sigma?” “How many events?...

A Theory of Space Without Time

An Addendum to the Natural Theory of Space Proving Time is Obsolete.

Appendices D and E.

 

VI. Appendix D

Planck’s Constant

Planck’s constantv h = 6.626068E-34 met^2 kg sec^-1:

From the Schrödinger equation,

h = 13.6eV / (1^2) / ν = (13.6eV / (1^2) / c) x 91.2nm

Then h = (E-sub-B / c) x (91.2E-9 / 50)

Or h = (E-sub-B / c) x 1.82E-9

And h = (E-sub-B / c) x (b x c / 1.82)

So

h = E-sub-B x b / 1.82 or

h = e^(-3/5) x b x E-sub-B = b EB / e3/5

where

b = 1.111E-17 meters

and

EB = E-sub-B = Earth surface barrier energy = 680eV/kg = 1.089E-16 J/kg

And the calculated h = 2.718^-3/5 x 1.111E-17 x 1.089E-16 = 6.6E-34 per event.

More precisely from our 3-decimal calculations and per appendices A through C,

h à h(1-Δh) where Δh = 0.08^5/2 and h = 6.63E-34 per event or we can write

h = b EB κ = b EB (1 – Δh) / e3/5 = b EB ( γ' / ρ').

Units for transformed h:

h ~ met J Kg-1 b-3 ~ met-2 J Kg-1 ~ met-2 met2 sec-2 Kg Kg-1 ~ (one B)^-1 = event-1.

VII. Appendix E

The Nature of Quantum Mechanics

We postulate that any allowed energy quanta has a wavelength λ = nb where n is an integer and b = 1.111… E-17 meters per the main text.

For example, the 13.6eV H ground state transition is λ = 91.2nm

And n = λ / b = 820882088.

Similarly, the H state 1 to state 2 transition is λ = 121.6nm

And n = 109450945.

An H state 3 to state 1 transition is λ = 486.1nm and n = 43753375.

Then 0 < one energy-event ≤ c / b ( = 2.700E25 J-event = c3 J-event)

and quantum energy = hc/λ is defined as an integral operation of 1/b.

Then the base of all quantum mechanics is 1/b = B where t = cB

and h = h(aG) and becomes a function of FB = FG.

It seems better to write the equivalent expressions:

E = hν = hc/λ leading to

E (J) = (b EB κ) event^-1 x c / (nb) energy-event and

E / EB = (κ / n) c or

n E / EB = κ c

where 1 ≤ n ≤ κc

and this more clearly defines the universal nature of quantum mechanics.

Units for the ratio E / EB = kg for one spatial boundary and the free-energy-state becomes EB (per unit mass) instead of “zero.”
