By Max Planck

The ebook contains of the interpretation of 2 Planck essays: 'Physikalische Gesetzlichkeit im Lichte neuerer Forschung (1926) and 'Das Weltbild der neuen Physik' (1929).

The first version of the English model was once initially released in 1931. this can be additionally the version on which the resource experiment is based.

The publication is a part of a five volumes [UL] 'series' of Max Planck's essays at the philosophy of physics to be had in English on P2P venues. In approximate chronological order, the 'series' contains of:

Example text

Hence naturally the earliest physical laws were discovered in this field; in other words, in the sphere of mechanics. Again, we can readily understand how it came about that the first laws which were established related to those motions which occur regularly and independently of external inter­ ference, namely, the motions of the celestial bodies. We know that the civilized peoples of the 64 East had discovered thousands of years ago how to derive from their observations formulae which allowed them to calculate in advance the motion of the sun and the planets with great accuracy.

In that case the wave-function ψ is the algebraic sum of the periodic characteristic functions multiplied by a certain amplitude con­ stant, and once again the square of the absolute value of ψ denotes the probability for the corre­ sponding position of the configuration point. In the general case, of course, we can no longer speak of one single definite period of vibration of the material waves; on the other hand, how­ ever, we can still speak of a definite energy. Accordingly the Quantum-equation E = h ν loses its original meaning and only gives us an average frequency ν.

In fact this is not the case with Heisenberg’s Principle of Uncertainty: this was reached from the con­ sideration that the elements of the new view of the world are not material corpuscles, but simple periodic material waves which correspond to the physical system under consideration— a conclu­ sion obtained in accordance with the mathematical 50 principle that it is impossible to determine a definite particle with definite momentum by means of superposition of simple periodic waves having a finite length.
