Quantum Theory Made Easy [1]

“Quantum Theory Made Easy,” a series in which the concepts of quantum physics are broken down for layaudiences in a more digestable manner. More in-depth than most presentations for laypersons, but without the mathematical rigour needed by a specialist in the field.
So, you’ve heard that light is a wave/particle. Now you get to find out how we know this!
In this episode, we’ll be discussing the dual nature of light, starting with a brief overview of how light was determined to be an electromagnetic wave and what properties light was classically associated with. From there, we’ll present the results of Planck’s blackbody experiments and introduce the concept of quantization, which was how this whole quantum mess was started in the first place. After explaining how the quantum of action (h) works, we’ll move on to how it showed up in experiments that challenged the wave picture of light, and how Einstein, bremsstrahlung, and Compton, made it clear that light can behave like a particle.

  1. Thank you for this. As someone with a interest but little formal education this is the best kind of information.

  2. had to take 2 ibuprofen after watching this video

  3. John Howard says:

    Please spend $12.00 and get a better mic and a free compressor/limiter software plugin.

    Native speakers should be limted only to own tribes .

  5. Clark Kent says:

    This is all in your head; nothing is what you think it is!

  7. I'll give you the Cliff Notes…IT DOESN'T EXIST.

  8. Dyson Golf says:

    Thanks for sharing this. Good work.

  9. 3.43 – waves are wrong, they must be shifted like sin vs cos

  10. Thank you so very much! This is the best explanation out there.

  11. Dude Spewed says:

    WOW. I just realized what the definition of "wavelength" is! It's so simple, my mind is blown.

  12. hmm … water behaves (rather obviously) in a wave-like way but is (even then I suppose) rather obviously made up of particles … so why where they so upset? (sorry if that's a dumb question … in my defense, I had a few glasses of wine)

  13. Harshini M says:

    Absolutely brilliant!!!!!!

  14. SuccessBasis says:

    this is incredible. much better than much of the stuff i found on youtube.

  15. Gzpo says:

    See for improved science.

  16. I'll take "dope-ass phrases for $800, please"

    14:04 "anomalous phenomenon"
    16:40 "monochromatic electromagnetic"

    Petty, I know.

    2:202:23 – not true. Attraction and repulsion is effect of charges, not masses. Charge inside some physical object attract/repulse charge inside the other physical object. No proper definition of what mass is – has been offered in main science.

    Good question, how small can we go? Let me explain. Electrons are mostly empty space. When an electron is in space, the volume of space it occupies gets dense. So all matter can be represented by the magnitude of "space density". Equal density space volumes repel each other and conversely, unequal space density volumes attract each other. And that's the basis of gravitational pull . For more go to: and examine the Universal Space Density Continuum graphic in the first paper. Two types of entities: 1. those that occupy space (matter) and 2. those that don't need space to exist (mind, thoughts, consciousness etc.). This model is complete, as it includes properties of entities unique to living cells (type 2). That's why I call it The Living Grand Unified Field Theory. Now you're ready for the second paper. The best way to understand the universe including "living cells". There's no such model in "science". My model leads to a supply of unlimited energy, because it's based on space-motion or Dynamika. God luck = higher probabilities for your happiness.

  19. "Made easy".,
    A~1- ..,

  20. Great video… nice refresher…. I've been thinking about this stuff again lately. :))

    I watched this and i still didnt understand a word you said other than quantum and theory.
