    A particle accelerator is a machine that accelerates particles, such as a proton or electron, to extremely high energies. These particles are accelerated to about the speed of light and the only difference between a weak particle accelerator and a strong one is that the stronger particle accelerator’s particles will have more kinetic energy. All particle accelerators have the same 3 basic parts, a source of ions, a tube pumped to a vacuum where the particles can travel, and a way of speeding up the

    Soil Particle Size and Porosity Question: A comparison between two methods of investigating: What is the effect of changing particle size (i.e. the texture of soil) on the porosity of the soil? This is basically investigating in two different ways, "What is the effect of changing particle size (i.e. the texture of the soil) on the porosity of the soil?" The two different methods can then be compared. Predictions Porosity is the amount of air space in a soil. There are two types

    Aim: I will investigate how the field strength varies the deflection of Beta Particles. Preliminary Work I started my preliminary work because, when I started my measurements using 2 coils used in experiments to deflect electrons from and electron gun. While testing for the deflection of beta particles, I found that beta radiation was scattered in a very large cone, I can not get any readings with amount of beta radiation scattering. So I would have to construct some type of shielding for this

    Hayden Austin Physics Mrs. Newman May 21, 2014 The Mystery of The God Particle The Higgs boson or God Particle as the media likes to call it has been eluding physicists very well up until last year when researchers were able to find remnants of this very unstable particle using the Large Hadron Collider. The Higgs particle was first theorized in 1964 by Peter Higgs, unfortunately the technology required to test this theory was only recently built. Though the much is still unknown scientists believe

    Particle accelerators are considered hallmark of human technological advancement. Colliding subatomic particles in high energies, particle accelerators have brought dramatic paradigm shift in our understanding of the universe. Accelerators generally collide energetic particles together and look for the change in the energy of the system. This measurement of energy in colliding particles plays a vital role in the understanding of the events occurring inside the particle accelerators. Understanding

    theories as to how the world we know came about. We’re going to delve into the concepts of particle acceleration and with that the big bang theory, and a few other things. So, first off, what is particle acceleration? Or rather what is a particle accelerator? A particle accelerator is basically a device that shoots particles in a line or beam at a very high rate. Basically, what scientists are doing is smashing particles or atoms together so hard that it will create a miniature big bang. What scientists

    big step in the discovery of the atom was the scientific test that proved the existence of the atom. After the discovery of the atom we had the discovery of subatomic particles. With the discovery of the subatomic particles came the research, which came from experiments that were made to find out more about the subatomic particles. This research is how we uncovered that most of the weight of an atom is from its nucleus. With the gold foil experiment, tested by Ernest Rutherford, he discovered the

    everything was made up of simple particles called Atoms. They called them Atoms because they believed that they had no parts and could not be broken. This had been believed for many centuries until evidence that something smaller actually existed (the electron). Once scientists found the electron, they were not satified. Scientists kept creating new theories and testing new hypothesis' attempting to find what makes the world tick. Now, the universe's fundimental particles have seemingly been found, but

    Particles are a very important part of this world. From the particles that make up all the humans in the world to the particles that make up the clothes we wear. Particles define the world we live in and everything we know about it. From the behavior of particles, scientists can determine many things about the world and the way it works. The simple definition of a particle is that it is a minute portion of matter. While not incorrect this answer lacks complexity. As was previously stated, particles

    Particle Physics plays an important role in attempting to answer many modern cosmological theories, notably: dark matter, structure formation, baryogenesis and nucleosynthesis. I am going to discuss some of connections between particle physics and cosmology and investigate how experimental particle physics and cosmology can complement each other and how dependable the connections are. Dark Matter There is now strong evidence pointing towards the existence of dark matter in the universe, derived
