Whose mathematical work on the laws of motion still forms the basis for the study of motion today?
Quantum mechanics is the mathematical description of matter on an atomic and subatomic scale. It is focused around the wavefunction of a system. Wave functions contain all information about the system such as: momentum, position, angular momentum, energy, etc. This information can only be known by its respective probability distributions. The basis of quantum mechanics in the wave mechanics formulation is the Schrodinger equation, which has two forms: the time-dependent and the time-independent. Quantum mechanics…
•There are a number of items that are used on an everyday basis which are operational because of different mechanisms which are inside. The main purpose of any mechanism is to redirect motion. •In order to fully understand how mechanisms work you must have knowledge of the different varieties of motion. It is also important to note that there are also a number of compound mechanisms which combine the different forms of redirection of motion.
