Think The Schrodinger’s Cat Experiment Is Ridiculous? So Did Erwin Schrodinger.
Erwin Schrodinger created the cat experiment to illustrate how crazy he believed the idea to be.
It also illustrated the problems he saw within Copenhagen’s interpretation of quantum physics that applies to objects used in every households.
The proposal describes how the cat is in the box and the state of being alive depends on the subatomic particle condition.
While Copenhagen’s idea was that the cat could both be alive or dead, Schrodinger didn’t want both to be a possibility.
The experiment is thought to be a cat in a box with a broken flask of poison. Copenhagen believes that the cat is both alive and dead even if you look inside and see the cat alive OR dead.
Schrodinger’s theory wanted to go against that thought and impractical applications to other objects.
