By Tim Cahill
Cahill (Jaguars Ripped My Flesh) courts intercontinental experience in those gathered trip items. He fishes for pike in Wisconsin's icy Lake Nagawicka (and competes in a minnow-drinking contest at Chuck and Sue's bar). Over the protests of the overdue Dian Fossey, he eyeballs Rwanda's now-famous mountain gorillas. And he joins the reporters flocking to the scene of mass suicide in Jonestown, Guyana. His pen is stuffed with adrenaline; he batters down stumbling blocks and dares to do the tough, no matter if this implies braving the odor of deterioration (Jonestown's "last our bodies to be got rid of were in one of these kingdom of decomposition that bits and items saved falling off'') or surviving a major wind-chill issue. notwithstanding Cahill's humor and machismo should be heavy-handed, and his occasional sexism is tense ("menopausal waitresses'' cramp his type in Oregon), the writer's urge for food for enjoyable and bother off the crushed course is exhilarating.

In the latter case, the quantum of action implies that the indeterminacy in the longitudinal position is given by the wavelength of the light. Can you confirm this? In particular, this means that photons cannot be simply visualized as short wave trains. Photons are truly unlocalizable entities, specific to the quantum world. Now, if photons can almost be localized along their direction of motion, we can ask how photons are lined up in a light beam.
III, page 102 or p = ħk . (10) In other words, if light is made of particles, we should be able to play billiard with them. This is indeed possible, as Arthur Compton showed in a famous experiment in 1923. He directed X-rays, which are high-energy photons, onto graphite, a material in which electrons move almost freely. He found that whenever the electrons in the material are hit by the X-ray photons, the deflected X-rays change colour. As expected, the strength of the hit is related to the deflection angle of the photon, as deduced from Figure 20.
The only variation that remains, translated into distances, is the indeterminacy of about one wavelength in the longitudinal direction, which we mentioned above. More bizarre consequences of the quantum of action appear when we study static electric fields, such as the field around a charged metal sphere. Obviously, such a field must also be made of photons. How do they move? It turns out that static electric fields are made of virtual photons.
