Particle Spin

In This Chapter

  • An angular momentum unique to quantum physics
  • Two types of fundamental particles that behave in different ways
  • The quantum basis of the periodic table
  • An explanation of antimatter

The roaring twenties were really an extraordinary time for the development of quantum physics. So much was learned and discovered in a relatively short time that it took a while for the wider scientific world to catch up and figure out what it all meant.

Much of this work was devoted to tying up loose ends that couldn’t be satisfactorily explained by Schroedinger’s nor Heisenberg’s theories of quantum mechanics. Still unexplained ...
