In physics, a quantum leap or jump is the change of an electron from one energy state to another within an atom. It is discontinuous; electrons jump from one energy level to another instantaneously, with no intervening or intermediary condition. The phenomenon contradicts classical theories, which expect energy levels to be continuous. Quantum leaps are the sole cause of the emission of electromagnetic radiation, including light, which occurs in the form of quantized units called photons. Ironically, when laymen use the term colloquially, they use it to describe large jumps in progress, when in reality a quantum leap is a very small change of state.
Scott Bakula and Dean Stockwell starred in Quantum Leap.
They development of modern computers was a quantum leap for society.
Quantum Leap ran for 5 seasons between 1989 and 1993.
Extreamly big. The true fans would wish that a quantum leap movie will come out.
sorry but no
There were 95 episodes of Quantum Leap broadcast between 1989 and 1993.
Quantum Leap A Bold Leap Forward - 2006 TV SUSPENDED was released on: USA: 2006
It wasn't Quantum Leap, it was Seven Days.
When a quantum leap occurs, a single photon is emitted. A "quantum leap" is generally used in the context of "business-speak" or "politico-speak" where the speaker is implying that some event, or process, or decision represents a large change of great significance.
The version of unchained melody that was played on Quantum Leap was done by the Righteous Brothers. It was featured in the M.I.A. episode.
It airs on the G4 network.
Change can happen over time,a quantum leap does not.The expression: a quantum leap comes from physics and refers to the orbit of electrons around the nucleus. The electrons cannot be anywhere but have to be in distinct energy regions. So for an electron to change orbit it must leap to the next energy or lower energy level it can not do it gradually.Similarly if a quantum leap is made it is a radical change not a gradual change. New discoveries in science can revolutionise traditional thinking overnight. One could say a quantum leap in understanding was made. Whereas, just about everything can change slowly over time but that is not a quantum leap.Change can be slow and gradual or even fast and high paced. The student quickly improved his language skills at the immersion school. Is an example of change.A quantum leap is jumping from one understanding to another. The student finally understood the difference in verb endings for the past tense and a quantum leap was made in his ability to understand and speak intelligibly. Vast progress was made when an impediment (obstacle) was removed.
