PreClass_01  (email me your answers by 12 noon Thursday ...  taylormp@hiram.edu)

 

Please provide brief answers to the following:

 

1) Describe classical reality as understood by a physicist in the latter part of the 19th century (i.e., the pre-quantum era).

 

2) Describe two experiments which seem to be at odds with the classical view of reality.

 

3) The so-called Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics (Nick Herbert's Quantum Reality #1 and #2) is often described as an anti-realism position.  What is your understanding of this interpretation?

 

 

Everyone also needs to send me a specific question you had about the reading.
