You seem to be posing a question about the nature of the Wave-Particle Duality. If you're asking how can a particle be a non "vibrating" particle and a vibrating wave at the same time, then the answer is as follows: With the Wave-Particle duality, we can view the same subatomic particles that we can apply point particle mechanics to as probability ...

I will use my limited knowledge about this topic to give a best answer I could. Heisenberg uncertainty principle said that: (according to me) We cannot at the same time "know" (or measure) the momentum and the position of a particle. How can we know? How can we define the momentum and the position of a particle? There are many difficulties describing ...

It is certainly true that as I type this the atoms in my fingers are vibrating, and so are the atoms in my keyboard. Yet I can still type. There are several reasons we don't perceive any vibration. Firstly, the vibrational frequencies are around $10^{12}$ to $10^{14}$Hz, that's from a trillion times a second to 100 trillion times a second. Since we can't ...

I don't think anyone actually knows how to do this yet. If you take a look at the atomic radius wikipedia page, you'll notice that none of the noble gases have an experimental measurement for their radii. So what you heard was right to an extant. There are other elements that have not yet been measured as well. The atomic radius of these gases can be ...
