Is optic computer and quantum computer the same?

HECK NO! An optics computer is a computer running on light, but a quantum computer is a computer where most components are at a quantum-Hall state of matter (hey did you know that there are more than 15 states of matter). In other words, optic computer=light, quantum computer=weird.

Metaphysics is more of a philosophical theory rather than a mathematical one like quantum physics.

What is the difference between quantum mechanics and classical mechanics?

classical mechanics deals with very large particles but in quantum mechanics very minute particles.

Difference between quantum mechanics and quantum theory?

There is no real difference behind the terms quantum mechanics and quantum physics and quantum theory. If one wants to make a linguistic distinction, you can. Quantum theory is the more encompassing term including any theoretical explanations of quantum phenomena and and generalization. Quantum Mechanics or Quantum Physics refers more to the physical laws which govern the quantum world of all quantum phenomena, and even applied to that world before we had developed the quantum theory with all the mathematics and equations to describe the quantum world. It parallels the meaning of the term Classical Physics.

You can tell the difference between 1s subshell and 3s subshell using quantum numbers and electron configuration.

What is the difference between quantum mechanics and quantum physics?

Quantum Mechanics is a branch of physics describing the behavior of energy and matter at the atomic and subatomic scales. It explains it itself and Quantum Physics is the same deal. They're just two different ways in saying it.

Why the xor gate is the most impurtant in quantum computer?

The most important gate is probably the CNOT gate, because combined with qubit superpositions and measurements, it forms the basis of a universal quantum computer. A quantum computer uses CNOT gates instead of conventional logic gates (such as NAND) because quantum mechanics requires that quantum computations be reversible.
