What are the main findings or laws of quantum physics?

Quantum physics, also known as quantum mechanics, is governed by a set of fundamental principles and laws that have turned our understanding of the universe on its head. Here are some of the most important:

  1. The principle of superposition : This states that a particle can be in multiple states at the same time, until the moment it is measured.
  2. Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle : This principle states that we cannot simultaneously know both the position and velocity (or momentum) of a particle with absolute certainty. The more we know about one, the less we can know about the other.
  3. Quantum entanglement : This phenomenon describes how pairs or groups of particles can be connected in such a way that the state of each particle is immediately related to the state of the other(s), no matter how great their physical distance may be.
  4. The wave-particle duality : According to this principle, matter can be considered both a wave and a particle, depending on how you look at it or measure it.
  5. The observer effect or observer influence : The idea that just by observing or measuring, we influence the system we are studying.

Together, these principles form a fascinating and sometimes counter-intuitive view of our world and the universe around us.
