2. God, Humanity and the Cosmos Topic: The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle
the more the momentum of the electron is altered. Thus any attempt to determine the location accurately will change the velocity of the electron. Conversely, techniques for accurately measuring the velocity of the electron will leave us in

3. Biography: Kenneth Miller
can be prepared for the electron microscope which capture the fine details of membrane structure. These can be correlated with the polypeptide and lipid composition of the membrane. His research has also begun to investigate

5. God, Humanity and the Cosmos Topic: Wave-Particle Duality
that, if you take a beam of electrons and pass it through a pair of slits (a classical wave experiment), you get diffraction and interference - properties characteristic of a wave rather than a particle. If you reduce the intensity of the

6. God, Humanity and the Cosmos Topic: The Schrödinger Wave Equation
probability of finding an electron in one location rather than another. The final outcome may be determinate (an electron in a particular location), but the probability distribution of the possible outcomes has the mathematical form of a wave.

(e.g., the capture of an electron by an interstellar dust particle), and irreversible micro-micro (e.g., proton-proton scattering in the presence of heavy nuclei) interactions, though it does not include reversible micro-micro

8. God, Humanity and the Cosmos Topic: The Hidden-Variable Theory of David Bohm
quantum particle, e.g. an electron , and a hidden ‘guiding wave’ that governs its motion. Thus, in this theory electrons are quite clearly particles. When you perform a two-slit experiment (see wave-particle duality ), they go through

9. God, Humanity and the Cosmos Topic: Alternatives to a Realist Position
It is hard to credit that an electron is an instrumental fiction, even though no-one has ever seen one directly, since so many phenomena have been observed in accordance with the behaviour and properties of electrons. To follow this debate in

10. Intelligent Design Topic: How Can an Unembodied Intelligence Interact with t...
a single particle like an electron can go through two slits simultaneously to produce a diffraction pattern on a screen (cf. the famous double-slit experiment). On a classical Newtonian view of physics, only a mechanical account in terms of
