Learn to whom the founding of quantum mechanics is attributed in physics.
The German mathematical physicist, Werner Karl Heisenberg (1901-1976), is regarded as the father of quantum mechanics (theory of small-scale physical phenomena).
His theory of uncertainty in 1927 overturned traditional classical mechanics and electromagnetic theory regarding energy and motion when applied to sub-atomic particles such as electrons and parts of atomic nuclei.
The theory states that it is impossible to specify precisely both the position and the simultaneous momentum (mass × volume) of a particle, but they could only be predicted. This meant that a result of an action can only be expressed in terms of probability that a certain effect will occur, not certainty.
