The Basics of Quantum Physics

Classical Physics and General Relativity, both the theories are incompatible with small-scale universe, that is, both the theories are not applicable on small particles. The scale where general relativity seems to predict some ‘strange’ things is below 10-9 meters.On the other hand, the special theory of relativity works well with particles. Actually, the tests conducted to prove special relativity had been done on very small scale.

Relativity was developed by a famous German physicist, Albert Einstein. Some contributions of Hermann Minkowski, Hendrik Lorentz and Max Planck is also there.
Theory of Relativity comes in two different ‘versions’ – ‘Special Theory of Relativity’ and ‘General Theory of Relativity’ or simply special relativity or general relativity.

Gravitational Waves

Space-time is a 4-dimensional structure, but we can’t actually even visualize a 4-dimensional space-time because we can’t see the dimension of time as our brain creates a 3-dimensional model of everything we see. So, we represent it with two dimensions, like a fabric.
