Classical Physics, after 200 years a facelift

The departure from classical mechanics is demonstrated by.

Ultraviolet Catastrophe. If you haven’t read of this catastrophe, you should know it is a catastrophe. Anyhow. According to classical physics, the energy density of an electromagnetic field is infinite. Experimentally, it is finite.

Inherit stability of atoms. Because of synchrotron radiation, all atom’s electrons should spiral into towards the nucleus. This does not happen.

Low specific heats of atoms and molecules. According to the equipartition theorem of classical physics, vibrational degrees of freedom should effect molar specific heat. This does not happen (except at high temperatures).

Wave-particle duality. This is the most well-known cause, depending on which side of the trenches you were on, light as a wave, or light as a particle. Or perhaps didn’t know the fight was going on. It never really made a big headline. The issue has been settled, slightly, that is physicists are no longer getting angry at one another for it. Classical mechanics can deal only with wave, or, particles. Light, (photons), act as particles and waves.

There you have it, a slight breakdown into the need for quantum mechanics.

Illustrated Poem


"A group of computer science professors is working on a new interactive 3D modelling technique, which can easily read information from various photos, and turn the objects into 3D models in just seconds.

The ‘3-Sweep’ technique, as demonstrated in the above video, takes three mouse strokes which define the three different dimensions of an object. The first two sweeps define the object’s profile, while the third sweep finds distinct outlines, and reads the object’s shape along its main axis.

This defines a 3D body which will snap to the object in the photo, and can then be rotated, adjusted and generally played around with.

Notably, the video describes numerous instances in which the algorithm would not work, including when there is a non-ideal perspective, or when an object has a fuzzy, non-readable edge. No information is as-of-yet available on when this technique might be made available for public use. “
