Episode 14: Principles of Quantum Mechanics

Continuing on from episode eight ‘The Atom’, I examine the quantum-mechanical description of the behaviour of electrons around atomic nuclei. This is followed by an overview of some of the other major principles of quantum theory, including the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, the Pauli Exclusion Principle, Quantum Tunnelling and Entanglement. The episode concludes with a discussion of alternative interpretations of these quantum phenomena.
