Physics 6 Tutorial 3 - Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle

Home

Summary

We will look at the very basics of Quantum Physics.  We then go on to consider Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle that underpins the weird world of subatomic particles.  We look at probability and how it allows particles to do strange things quantum tunnelling.  We then look at the quantum model of the atom.
