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.
A blog post explaining virtual particles which are responsible for transmitting forces.
An in-depth look at the different subatomic particles and how we use charge to characterise them.
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.
An explanation behind virtual particles and how they can be detected indirectly.
