The nuclei are ejected from heavy, unstable nuclei so as to remove excess protons and neutrons. However, the formed nuclei may still be radioactive in which even further decay will occur. Alpha emissions occur in nuclei with atomic numbers greater than 83. E.g 23892U 42He + 23490Th (both mass and No. of protons are conserved during the reaction) Beta radiation/emission – Beta particles are electrons (0-1e) that have been released from the nucleus of a radioactive atom when a neutron decays into a proton and electron.
The “parameter” that scientists call quark mass controls its acceleration when a force is applied. It is set to give what would be the best match between theory and experiment for the ratio of masses or various hadrons and for behavior of quarks in high energy experiments. But none of these can actually tell us the quarks mass. Leptons are electron type particles. They have a tau-minus which is like an electron with the mass of 1.784 GeV/c2.
The year 2012 was not only memorable to physicists for its breakthroughs, which include the galaxy motion cluster, neutrino-based communication or the method to see through opaque materials. But it is memorable because 2012 was the year that the physicists working in the Large Hadron Collider announced the detection of the Higgs boson particle. The Higgs Boson particle was hypothesized by a British physicist named Peter Higgs more than 50 years ago because of the undetermined origin of mass to known particles made the assignment of mass extremely difficult and made mathematical equations inconsistent (Exploratorium, 2012). The Higgs Boson particle was supposed to complete the standard model of particle physics and break the electroweak symmetry during the initial moments of the Big Bang (Cho, 2012). The Higgs boson particle was one of the main research experiments of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a particle accelerator with a circumference of 27 kilometers (CERN, 2008).
In 1939, this theory was confirmed when Hans Bethe showed that beta decay and quantum tunneling in the Sun's core might convert one of the protons into a neutron and thereby producing deuterium rather than a diproton. The deuterium would then fuse through other reactions to further increase the energy output. For this work, Bethe won the 1967 Nobel Prize in Physics. The Dangers One danger of nuclear fusion is the neutron that is released. Neutrons have a tendency to “bind” to nuclei, which causes it to become radioactive.
It is only a possibility that dark matter exists ... ... middle of paper ... ...ity, strange energy-fluid that filled in space, and that Einstein’s theory of gravity could be wrong and a new theory could be found about the cosmic acceleration. Dark energy effects space and time. Dark energy overcomes gravity. In the 1990s, astrophysicists examined distant supernovae to calculate the deceleration of the universe. These astrophysicists were surprised by the results of actually seeing that the universe is accelerating.

Varying the magnetic and electric fields will change the trajectory of the electron. From this it can be shown that the path of an electron is circular in a uniform magnetic field and parabolic in electric fields. With a known anode voltage from the electron gun and by varying the strengths of the electric and magnetic fields the charge-to-mass ratio of an electron can be calculated. Introduction This experiment was first done by J.J Thomson in 1897. The result from this was that he discovered that the atom was not a fundamental unit of matter and that it had charged constituents that could not be separated.
Also discussed in detail is the nature and emissions on radiation particles alpha, beta and gamma. Information looked at was the decay of these particles and what occurs during the decaying of these particles. Also the effect which this has on the nucleus when radiation particles decay. The range and effects of these radiation particles have upon electrical and magnetic fields were also described. Explanations were also given why certain particles favour certain sides of magnetic and electrical fields.
