“Some of the most important equations in physics. HT: @inesgn”

A particle is trapped inside a black hole. What is the probability it will escape via quantum tunneling? To figure this out, we begin by defining the variables involved: The diagram below shows two regions: I and O. Region I is inside the event horizon, within the Schwarzshild radius (rs). Region O is outside the event horizon. The question we ask is what is the probability the particle (red dot) will reach region O? And, we could also ask what is the probability the particle will fail to…

According to Wikipedia, there's an infinite set of possible wavefunctions (orbitals) for the hydrogen atom: $$\psi_{n\ell m}(r,\theta,\phi) = \sqrt {{\left ( \frac{2}{n a_0} \right )}^3\frac{(n-\e...

"Does the concept of observation have deep relevance in fundamental physics? What about in quantum physics where some kind of observation seems to be needed to transform “wave function” probabilities into actual events? What’s an “observation” anyway? What does it take to be an “observer”? Must it have some kind of sentience?
