Eugene Wigner received the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1963 along with J. Hans D. Jensen and Maria Goeppert Mayer for their theory of the atomic nuclei and the elementary particles. They are based on ...
Maria Goeppert Mayer (1906 - 1971) received the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1963 along with Eugene Wigner and J. Hans D. Jensen for their theory of the atomic nuclei and the elementary particles. They ...
short video explaining subatomic particles, elements and compounds. It shows how the atom is composed of sub-atomic particles such as electrons, protons and neutrons and how protons and neutrons are ...
Applet simulating particles connected by springs in a 2D world. Includes gravity/electrostatic forces between particles, air resistance and more.
The W and Z particles are the massive exchange particles which are involved in the nuclear weak interaction, the weak force between electrons and neutrinos.
In order to accomplish nuclear fusion, the particles involved must first overcome the electric repulsion to get close enough for the attractive nuclear strong force to take over to fuse the particles.
Max Born (1881 - 1970) won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1954 for his work on subatomic particles. His work on wave functions lead to the understanding that electrons should be regarded as particles.
Gluons are the exchange particles for the colour force between quarks, analogous to the exchange of photons in the electromagnetic force between two charged particles.
An elementary quiz based on the position and orbits of the planets.
This fact sheet describes ionizing radiation, how it behaves and how it can affect human health. Three types of ionizing radiation are alpha particles, beta particles, and gamma rays.
