Schrodinger's is an experiment where a cat and a deadly chemical are locked together. The chemical can kill the cat. But, in theory the cat is is alive until the death is observed by an outside onlooker. So as long as the cat is not observed in the box with a deadly poison, the cat can be either alive or dead, hence no true answer.

There is no reason to point out what the experiment was, as we are all aware.

And I don't think you have much place to talk as one who YYA'd the post, as you support the idea that we know whether it is alive/dead while us NW'ers recognize that the cat cannot be seen as dead.

No, a cat, along with a flask containing a poison and a radioactive source, is placed in a sealed box shielded against environmentally induced quantum decoherence. If an internal Geiger counter detects radiation, the flask is shattered, releasing the poison that kills the cat. The Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics implies that after a while, the cat is simultaneously alive and dead. Yet, when we look in the box, we see the cat either alive or dead, not both alive and dead.

Dear people: there was no "experiment." It was a "thought" experiment. Nobody actually put a cat in a box with a radioactive chemical. It wasn't like somebody tried this and this was the results, it's that this is what the theory of the time (and the current theory) logically implied. This was just an idea that Schroedinger had when he was looking at the pitfalls of his theory.

True, but while "dead and alive" includes "dead", "and" implies an intersection is in process. That means that the cat must be both dead AND alive simultaneously, otherwise the cat is neither dead nor alive.

(Chauncy Pickles): I respectfully disagree. Just because something is two things, doesn't make it neither. If I'm drinking a mocha coffee, it's both chocolate and coffee flavored, does that make it neither? I wouldn't say so.

Admiral_Beena Admiral_Beena

In response to “(Chauncy Pickles): I respectfully disagree...

If something is two things, how could it possibly be neither? Obviously you misinterpreted my comment.

In math, AND is used to show where intervals intersect (or intercept), and the intervals show that the domain may only exist where the intervals overlap, so you had to pick where the domain carries both elements or neither.

OR, on the other hand, represents unions between intervals. With unions, you may use any value in the domain from either interval, whether separate or together.

Of course something being two things doesn't mean the something can be neither. That would make no sense. I was saying that you noted an interception, so while your interval included dead, the cat would only exist in while it was both dead and alive at the same time.

Schrodinger's cat isn't about the cat not being dead until you observe it, you don't KNOW if the cat is dead because there's an equal chance of it living and dying, according to the experiment. So the cat could be alive, cat could be dead. Until we know, the cat is both alive and dead. The experiment doesn't for sure kill the cat.

....Didn't we have a POTD very similar to this a while back? I can't remember, but I know it had to do with Schrodinger's cat.

Well, following that logic, we don't know if it's a cat at all.

you put the cat in the box so you know. i dont get it though. the words "and" and "or" cannot be used interchangeably. the cat is either alive or dead, not alive and dead. and at first i thought it was the vile doesnt open untill you open the door so with that evidence you know its dead but you wouldnt be able to see thats its not dead while its in the box. but thats not what it was.

It's a matter of where you are. Outside of the box, since the chance it's dead or alive is equal, it's considered to be both. However within the box the cat is most certainly one of the two.

In real life, that is true. The cat is bound by the rules of quantum physics, because the point of the experiment is to show people how stupid quantum physics is in real life.

It's both dead and alive, it's called a superposition. Quit fallin' asleep in physics class, kid.

What is interesting about Schrodinger's cat is that the very concept of it being dead and alive is entirely scientific. If you were to drop a phone face-first on a concrete sidewalk, you would not know if it was cracked or perfect fine. The only way to know is to check. However, before knowing the true outcome, scientists safely assume that it is indeed both cracked and perfectly fine to avoid making assumptions that have no value. If there is REALLY no way to tell whether it is one way or the other until you see it, scientists assume it is both. That is why Schrödinger's cat is considered dead & alive. Therefore, Schrödinger's cat IS dead...but it's also alive.

After being trapped in that box for so long it's definitely deceased.

Becouse we cant see in the box to see if the atom has decayed so the cat is equal parts dead and alive

IF he had a cat ... it is, since they don't live this long.
