Quantum Computing

Quantum computing is the use of quantum mechanics within computing in order to decrease the number of processes needed to find a solution to a problem. Quantum computers use qubits (quantum bits) instead of bits and these qubits can be subject to a manipulation that can’t be done to classical bits, such as quantum entanglement and superposition. There are a number of objects that can be used as qubits, photons, nuclei or electrons which means that while classical computers today are being limited because computer components cannot be decreased any further in size, quantum computer components would only have to be a few atoms in size.                      Quantum computers hold many advantages over classical computers. One such advantage is that while classical bits can only be presented as zeros or ones at any given time, qubits can exist in any superposition of these values up until they are measured. When harnessed , this allows quantum computers to process a vast amount
