comment Does every hermitian operator represent a measurable quantity?
What is the precise definition of the term observable? How do you know a hermitian operator is observable or not?

I think your question is what isdefinition of measurement in quantum mechanics or equivalently when does a "wavefunction" collapse happen? For this you can read this article en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Measurement_in_quantum_mechanics Though I don't think there is any universally accepted definition of measurment in QM.See my edited amswer.

To understand paricle physics, you need knowledge of group representation theory and Lie groups.

comment How electrons act under rotating magnetic field?
The behaviour of an electron is determined by the laws of quantum mechanics not classical mechanics. An electron may not have definite position or momenum. Also. eletrons don't rotate around the nucleus in classical orbits.
