In today’s time, quantum mechanics serve as the foundation of all the semiconductors in both smart mobile devices and computers.
In an effort to build modern semiconductor for computer use, it is imperative to grasp concepts like how the electrons are behaving when atoms are grouped together in solid material.
Undoubtedly, it is something that can be accurately described by quantum mechanics.
Development is Inevitable
Without it, there will be no improvements and developments and most probably, we’ll be stuck in using computers that are still based on vacuum tubes.
These days, majority of the common application for this theory is seen in GPS. To be able to use satellite signals in pinpointing your location, you ought to know the actual time that the signal left the satellite and to when it will arrive on earth.
As per Einstein’s theory of general relativity, what this mean is, the distance of clock from the center of the earth’s gravity will affect how quick it ticks. This theory of special relativity indicates that the speed in which a clock moves is affected by its ticking speed too.
Not knowing how to make adjustments to the clocks will be difficult to use satellite signals accurately and determine ground positions.
