Quantum physics is the branch of physics that describes the behavior of particles at the smallest possible scales. In the quantum realm, quantum mechanical effects become significant and particles can no longer be described using classical physics. Quantum entanglement is a phenomenon observed at the quantum scale where entangled particles stay connected (in some sense) […]
