part ii. The Quantum and its attributes of mixing; what results is uncertainty or indeterminacy.
Quantum is simply an unit of matter or energy. Quantum are described, by the differential equation; called a Schrodinger’s Equation. The Schrodinger’s Equation is a doubled-up equation, in the sense that, its a differential equation: that describes a wave, and, another differential equation: that describes a particle. The mixing of equations like this, is very natural. That is, such mixing are to be; found in nature. Its this mixing of waves and particles, which gives rise to Uncertainty Principle. In this particular case of equation mixing which entails wave and particles, to be mixed, its called; a wave-particle mixing or duality.
But, there could be many more different kinds of example of mixing, of the quantum of waves and particles, eg the masses and the quark content of some particle get mixed up, between themselves. In other words, lets say, in a packet, I keep separated quantum (A, B, C) which are made of certain kind of quark content, of some other quantum (alpha, beta); (each of A, B, C: in terms of alpha + beta always), and in another packet, I will have quantum (D, E, F) that are separated on the basis of the different masses of the constituent quantum (each of D, E, F: in terms of gamma + eta always) of the quantum (D, E, F) in question, paying no attention to the quark content.
