Question 3: Unlike quantum physics, classical physics is generally characterized by the principle of complete determinism (although the ________ is in a sense deterministic).
Quantum decoherenceDe Broglie–Bohm theoryRelational quantum mechanicsMany-worlds interpretation

Question 4: When discussing ________, it refers to non-quantum physics, often including even general relativity.
Quantum mechanicsSchrödinger equationIntroduction to quantum mechanicsWave–particle duality

Question 5: In contrast to classical physics, modern physics is a slightly looser term which may refer to just ________ or to 20th and 21st century physics in general and so always includes quantum theory and may include relativity.

Question 7: There are no restrictions on the application of classical principles, but, practically, the scale of classical physics is the level of isolated ________ and molecules on upwards, including the macroscopic and astronomical realm.

Question 8: Moreover, the classical theory of ________ is somewhat limited in its ability to provide correct descriptions, since quantum effects are observable in more everyday circumstances than quantum effects of matter.
