I am asking this question to all the Quantum Computing or Quantum Mechanics practitioners.
I have studied that when you measure a state, then you will get an eigenvalue for sure corresponding to whatever measurement operator you have. So suppose if I toss a coin, and upon measurement get a head, then is the value of head be the eigenvalue corresponding to the measurement operator?
If so, then what is the exact measurement operator? Measure coin state?
Sorry if this question feels dumb to you, I am just starting to study the subject and I am reading the quantum postulates. I was thinking and got stuck here.
Thank you for your help.
