The Standard Model of particle physics; there’s plenty of room at the bottom

Towards the end of the 1970s, a theory was postulated. The Standard Model as it was called, concerned with the forces and the interaction dynamics with other elementary particles. Because of its success in explaining a wide variety of experimental results, the Standard Model is sometimes regarded as a theory of everything....

Nano particle and its properties

In nanotechnology, a nano particle or say nano powder or nano cluster or nano crystal is a small object or say, a microscopic particle that has dimension of 100 nanometers or less in size. And it is being used in the manufacture of scratchproof eyeglasses, crack- resistant paints, anti-graffiti coatings for walls, transparent sunscreens, stain-repellent fabrics, self-cleaning windows and ceramic c...

Fun With Physics: The Quantum Mess: Wave-Particle Duality

Welcome to the world of the quantum mess! It\'s well established that elementary particles can behave in experiments like waves, and waves behave like particles. It\'s called ‘Wave-Particle Duality\' or just ‘Duality\'. That duality isn\'t in doubt, but it is one of those aspects of the quantum that is puzzling....

Nevis - Micro Hardness Tester Manufacturer - Magnetic Particle Testing Manufacturer

History Amerindians When Nevis was sighted by Columbus in 1493, the island had already been settled for more than two thousand years by Amerindian people. Since the 1990s, artifacts from three major prehistoric periods have been discovered at excavation sites in Nevis. The indigenous people of Nevis during these periods belonged to the Leeward Island Amerindian groups popularly referred to as Arawaks and Caribs, a complex mosaic of ethnic groups with similar culture and language...

Particle Size Analysis Applications For Agriculture

In agriculture, particulates utilized in fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides should be meticulously controlled, otherwise they wouldn\'t be effective or would be wasted during application. Particles within the fertilizers used in farmed fields should have the precise size for the chemicals to be infused into the soil at the proper rate. Too massive a particle and also the growing merchandise risk being damaged....

Is the Duration of the Earth Orbiting the Sun Mathematically Related to Particle Physics? Yes

What if there was a mathematical equation, which took into consideration the density of matter, and the orbits (speed of rotation, distance, force) around other matter, one which worked for all objects regardless of size? If there was such a mathematical equation then would it be possible to take the weight of the earth, and the sun in come up with a constant, and then apply this same mathematical equations to the very small, I mean really tiny like in particle physics, as in electrons in atoms. Is it possible that such a relationship exists?...
