Atom Split Into Two And Then Put Back Together Using Quantum Mechanics

Atom Split Into Two And Then Put Back Together Using Quantum Mechanics

This experiment, the double-slit experiment, does not split anything into two. When an atom going through the double-slit, it literally goes through both slits at the same time. An atom can do this because it behaves like a wave in experiments designed for waves. I know this sounds weird! The world behaves like this at tiny distances. But our common sense is formed by experiences in situations where the weird quantum mechanical behavior averages out, giving us the behavior we call common sense. Quantum mechanics predicts this weird behavior, and all experiments designed to test the predictions of quantum mechanics shows this weird behavior. But quantum mechanics is everywhere. All of chemistry is applied quantum mechanics. The transistors in your computers, cell phones, and other electronic devices work because of quantum mechanics. Lasers work because of quantum mechanics...
