The Double-slit experiment - Sunday 25th July 2010 - 6pm

In quantum mechanics, the double-slit experiment (often referred to as Young's experiment) demonstrates the inseparability of the wave and particle natures of light and other quantum particles.

Importance to philosophy

The double-slit experiment has been of great interest to philosophers, because the quantum mechanical behavior that it reveals has forced them to reevaluate their ideas about classical concepts such as "particles",[11] "waves", "location", and "movement from one place to another".

Importance to physics

Although the double-slit experiment is now often referred to in the context of quantum mechanics, it is generally thought to have been first performed by the English scientist Thomas Young in the year 1801 in an attempt to resolve the question of whether light was composed of particles (Newton's "corpuscular" theory), or rather consisted of waves traveling through some ether, just as sound waves travel in air.
Suitable for beginners & those with more experience & knowledge

Want to learn about the fundamental building blocks of our universe, their amazing properties and the impact of this on lives today? The concepts derived from Quantum Mechanics, the study of the behaviour of the fundamental particles and energies of nature , have been imperative in the shift in understanding of our universe from one of determinism to uncertainty, probability and observation - where objects can no longer be measured exactly but exist throughout Space and Time.

We also look into Black Holes , along with determining the Universe?s beginning and possible end. .

Quantum Physics also appears to spark off in Physics, Cosmology, Philosophy and Spirituality.

This group consists of talks, meetings and debates from the intelligent layman's point of view. Meetings will remain easy-going, fun and informative. All people are invited, whether they be interested in purely the scientific or the philosophical discussions around this amazing science. Feel free to attend however much you know or don?t know
Meetings :- 4th Sunday of the month, 6pm (nxt 27th June)
