Niels Bohr said, "Anyone who is not shocked by quantum mechanics has not understood it." What do you think he meant by this statement?

Solution 108P

Niels Bohr said, "Anyone who is not shocked by quantum mechanics has not understood it." because quantum mechanics gives information about two important facts like dual nature of electron and the second one is about the quantization of energy. This can be explained as follows:-

Quantum chemistry is the application of quantum mechanical principles and equations to the study of molecules. In order to understand matter at its most fundamental level, we must use quantum mechanical models and methods. There are two aspects of quantum mechanics that make it different. The...
