Sabine Hossenfelder explains atomic energy levels and their role in quantum mechanics.
Watching these videos is all part of my plan to understand the fundamental forces behind quantum computing.
Geek’s Lesson provides this full nine hour source on quantum mechanics.
Quantum mechanics (QM; also known as #quantum #physics, quantum theory, the wave mechanical model, or #matrixmechanics), including quantum field theory, is a fundamental theory in physics which describes nature at the smallest scales of energy levels of atoms and subatomic particles.

Sabine Hossenfelder explains one of the most common misunderstandings about quantum mechanics — that quantum mechanics is about making things discrete or quantifiable.
This must be one of the most common misunderstandings about quantum mechanics, But is an understandable misunderstanding because the word “quantum” suggests that quantum mechanics is about small amounts of something. Indeed, if you ask Google for the meaning of quantum, it offers the definition “a discrete quantity of energy proportional in magnitude to the frequency of the radiation it represents.” Problem is that just because energy is proportional to frequency does not mean it is discrete. In fact, in general it is not.
