comment Quantum Mechanics- Antenna emitting electromagnetic radiation
Vladimir, I'm quite sure that's not the intention of the question. There's no such thing as the minimum or maximum power of an antenna. The power received is always proportional to the incident power. I'm quite sure the person who designed the question chose a very small power in a misguided attempt to demonstrate that quantum effects can be demonstrated in a classical situation. In fact, even if we accept the numbers given, there is no way to detect the supposed granularity of the received power by measuring the antenna current.

comment Quantum Mechanics- Antenna emitting electromagnetic radiation
Technically yes, but again, it's not a physically realistic problem. A real antenna receives more power depending on what the transmitter puts out, but in this problem it only says the antenna is "capable" or receiving so and so many watts, without regard to the transmitted power. That's not physically realistic.

comment Is it theoretically possible to reach 0 kelvin?
Ron, you haven't addressed my point about the measurement postulate. Isn't the act of measurement supposed to force the system into a definite eigenstate?

Thanks, Straups, for the delayed answer. I was going somewhere with this a year ago but I'm damned if I can remember where.

comment Questions on wave-particle duality
I normally enjoy reading you're analyses, but today I'm suprised and disappointed to see that you give credence to the many-worlds theory.

Surely you realize I have no idea what you're trying to say.

comment Energy Measurements in a Two Fermion Double Well System
Arnold, I don't know if you even bother to read what I wrote. I said that the picture was two atoms with one electron. The full picutre with two electrons I posted yesterday, showing four different cases. That was the answer which Lubos ridiculed.
