Does Neutron Star Collapse Violate Quantum Theory?

With the death of a star meaning that radiation pressure can no longer support the gravitational crush due to its large mass, Pauli’s exclusion principle maintains an equilibrium in what has now become a neutron star. Heisenberg uncertainty allows for a neutron star to undergo ultimate collapse, as a star becomes more massive momentum space […]

Double Slit Interference, and Quantum Weirdness!

Young’s double slit experiment is one of the most well-known experiments in the history of physics. Showing that light behaves as a wave, which we later on found out wasn’t always the case, the experiment was originally carried out by Thomas Young in 1801. Young obviously had no ideas about the implications the experiment would […]

Pauli’s Exclusion Principle ¬ Basic “Proof”

One very important concept and principle of quantum mechanics is the Pauli exclusion principle. Responsible for things such as different electron orbits, it can be observed in many places. The exclusion principle states that no two Fermions can occupy the same quantum state.  But what does this mean? This can be shown in terms of […]
