Ferr I am a complete layman when it comes to this subject. A whistlestop tour through the two theories that underpin pretty much all modern physics — quantum theory, and relativity. The e-learning system LMS Moodle is available to teachers and students. A fun little book about physics for adults who want to take a slightly deeper dive into the world of atoms than the usual old metaphors about rubber blankets and bowling balls.

Shelves: science Contrary to what the title of this book suggests, Quantum Theory does hurt me, in many many ways. Like a defeatist I am running around the trees to get the grasp of it. But in vain. The moment I see a light at the end of the tunnel, I realize that is just a firefly. And instead of grasping the depth, I just gasp for breath. Now, coming to this book, in the beginning Contrary to what the title of this book suggests, Quantum Theory does hurt me, in many many ways.
Now, coming to this book, in the beginning the author asks the readers which of the following statements might be true, Every breath you take contains an atom breathed out by Marilyn Monroe There is a liquid that can run uphill You age faster at the top of a building than at the bottom An atom can be in many different places at once, the equivalent of you being in Newyork and London at the same time.
The rest of the book goes on explaining these weird phenomena of Science, that is definitely more stranger than all the science fictions I have come across so far I have read all Michael Crichtons and couple of Arthur C Clarkes with the help of Quantum Theory microscopic world and the Relativity Theories macroscopic world.
The language of the book is fiction-like. And the author does a pretty good job at enthusing his non-scientific readers towards the mindboggling discoveries of twentieth century. However, the book is not for the beginners who do not have a clue about what modern physics is all about. Neither it is for physics researchers who want to understand reality via mathematics.
This book is best suited for people who wants to get awed by how our modern science has shaped human understanding of the universe and everything in it. In the end, the author propounds a thought that could there be a single theory combining these two - like Quantum Relativity quantum gravity.
A thing to ponder about. One question is troubling me of late, after reading so much on Quantum Mechanics and Relativity - Can a reductionist explanation be sufficient to explicate the holistic complexity?
