Problem 1CQ

Models are particularly useful in relativity and quantum mechanics, where conditions are outside those normally encountered by humans. What is a model?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Problem 1CQ

Solution 1 CQ

Step 1 of 3:

In this question we need to explain what is a model, considering the example of models used in understanding relativity and quantum mechanics

Step 2 of 3:

Models are used to represent things which cannot be easily displayed directly, these models are accurate only under certain situations and they are explained using experimental evidence

They are certain things in universe which is hard to imagine or visualize, such approximations can be represented using models

Example planetary model of atomic system, where electrons are orbiting around nucleus, as atomic are very small to visualize from naked eye, a model is used to represent it

Step 3 of 3

Chapter 1, Problem 1CQ is Solved
