Schrödinger's Cat - Thought Experiment
Schrödinger's Cat - Thought Experiment
Inside this small wooden box is a wooden representation of the famous Schrödinger thought experiment. At this stage there is a 50% probability that the cat, cut out of wood, is alive, and a 50% chance that the cat is dead. The cat can thus be said to be in both states - alive and dead - until you o...

Leidenfrost Effect
Leidenfrost Effect
A drop of water will evaporate very quickly from a metal surface that has been heated to over 100 degrees centigrade. But if we heat the metal surface even more, up to around 200 degrees centigrade, we would expect a drop of water placed on this surface to evaporate even more quickly. Right? Well,...
