- The mode of operation and the associated tools change with the Order of Magnitude.
- There is a change in an order of magnitude when a number (or measure) is multiplied by ten.
- The following are examples of the mode of transportation with the change in order of magnitude.
An average person can walk 4+ mph (miles per hour).
An average car can be driven 40+ mph.
An air plane can be flown 400+ mph.
- Modern Physics evolved from Classical Physics to handle the vast range of speed and size.
- Newtonian Mechanics holds when objects move at a relatively low speed (compared to that of light).
- Relativity comes into play when objects move at a speed closer to that of light.
- The size of an object can span several orders of magnitude.
- [Per Dr. Kyaw Tint} ; When they become small Quantum Mechanics can only describe their behaviors.
