  9. Моделиране на взаимодействия на биологични молекули From quantum to classic mechanics For particle with mass m in equilibrium and temperature T, the mean value of the momentum is Heisenberg uncertainty principle Follows that the width is It is possible to omit the quantum effects if the variations sx are less than some critical width defining the accuracy of our calculations.. Critical width

  10. Electrons are treated by means of quantum mechanics Hydrogen and Deuterium atoms at temperature 300 K can not be considered as a pure classical objects Heavier atoms can be treated as classical objects (temperatures 300 K).
