“The universe seems to like talking to itself faster than the speed of light,” said Steinberg. “I could understand a universe where nothing can go faster than light, but a universe where the internal workings operate faster than light, and yet we’re forbidden from ever making use of that at the macroscopic level — it’s very hard to understand.”

Sound and Light Waves Activity (Forms of Energy Foldable)

These cootie catchers are a great way for students to have fun while learning about waves. These cootie catchers contain the following vocabulary terms: Wave, Amplitude, Vibration, Frequency, Trough, Wavelength, Crest, Pitch, Surface wave, Electromagnetic wave, Longitudinal wave, Refraction, Diffraction, Mechanical wave, Transverse wave, Medium, Sonic boom, Wave interference, Destructive interference, Constructive interference, Doppler effect, Compression, Rarefaction, Ear


Comparison of classical and quantum harmonic oscillator conceptions for a single spinless particle. The two processes differ greatly. The classical process (A–B) is represented as the motion of a particle along a trajectory. The quantum process (C–H) has no such trajectory. Rather, it is represented as a wave. Panels (C–F) show four different standing wave solutions of the Schrödinger equation. Panels (G–H) further show two different wave functions that are solutions of the Schrödinger ...
