While classical physics gives us the laws governing why a ball rolls downhill and how a plane is able to fly, its quantum cousin gives us particles that are actually waves, "spooky" action at a distance, and Schrödinger's imaginary cat. But as the author of How to Teach Quantum Physics to Your Dog explains here in this book for humans, even the most mundane of everyday activities is profoundly influenced by the abstract and exotic world of the quantum. Decoding the science of the sun, alarm clocks, the aroma of breakfast, and the red glow of a toaster's hot filaments, Chad Orzel reveals how a typical day is rich with examples of quantum weirdness.
