Download Why Is it So : Light & Modern Physics epub
The concept of "light" described by modern physics seems, to. .We do not know why it is the case. But it was an ingenious conclusion Einstein derived from the Michelson-Morley experiment.
The concept of "light" described by modern physics seems, to me at least, an incomprehensible bundle of properties: a "universal constant," the "maximum speed," a "wave-particle" phenomenon, the invisible source of "visibility," the equivalent of the square root of "energy divided by matter," a limit of causality, an "electro-magnetic field," and the "fastest possible information," et.
Originally Answered: Why we need modern physics instead of classic physics? Because classical physics is wrong in some extreme situations. For instance, although Newtons theories are fairly accurate at lower speeds, as you approach the speed of light they start to break down. You need newer theories such as special relativity to explain these situations. Likewise, while traditional wave mechanics explains much of the behavior of light, it didn’t explain why weak violet light could trigger the photoelectric effect while the most intense infrared light could not. Only the development of quantum.
Modern physics has many achievements to be proud of. A quantum understanding of three of the forces of nature. And we also had Newton's laws, which provided a solid framework for understanding motion. These two pillars propped up our physical world. A beautiful, elegant description of gravity though the bending of space-time. Then folks like Albert Einstein had to come and smash it all. With special relativity, we had to completely rewrite our notions of time, space, distance and speed. And with quantum mechanics, we had to sit down and have a serious rethink abou. ell, basically all of fundamental reality.

But it is valuable to think of light as made up of waves because experiments indicate that light behaves in many respects as water waves do.

Why is ISBN important? ISBN. Book Condition: Light rubbing wear to cover, spine and page edges. Very minimal writing or notations in margins not affecting the text. Possible clean ex-library copy, with their stickers and or stamp(s). I like it because of the elegance and profundity of its mathematical treatment. But I think the second best is Wolfson/Pasachoff, Physics for Scientists and Engineers.
Modern physics is an effort to understand the underlying processes of the interactions of matter utilizing the tools of science & engineering. In general, the term is used to refer to any branch of physics either developed in the early 20th century and onwards, or branches greatly influenced by early 20th century physics. Modern Physics can be considered consisting of Classical physics, The Standard Model of physics and Theoretical physics including Quantum physics, Relativity and more.

To understand why let me start by explaining what a symmetry is. Probably the simplest example of symmetry most people can understand intuitively from common experience is bilateral symmetry.
