Why don't stable atoms constantly emit light?
The electron cloud of a stable atom is the superposition of the electron at it's given energy level. A charge in motion produces light. If we look for the electron at one point, it's probability of being there will be the square of of the wave function. Let's say we find it here, then move over there, and find it there (lucky us!). It has moved, right? It was at one location, now it's at another, that's motion, right? So, when it moved, shouldn't it have emitted light? Did it emit light? If so, what happened to it's energy level? Did it change? What of some other atom. Surely, if we looked, we might find it's electron here or there, and since it's moving around, ought it to be emitting light, constantly?
Researchers discover a link between nonverbal synchronization and relationship success.
- Scientists say coordinating movements leads to increased intimacy and sexual desire in a couple.
- The improved rapport and empathy was also observed in people who didn't know each other.
- Non-verbal clues are very important in the development stages of a relationship.
Humans evolved to live in the cold through a number of environmental and genetic factors.
- Behavioral and dietary changes also helped humans adapt to cold climates.
