Subatomic particle Current Affairs, GK & News
Murray Gell-Mann (89), a Jewish American physicist who theorized the existence of the quark and won a Nobel Prize for his method of classifying particles, has passed away in New Mexico on May 24, 2019. He transformed physics by devising a method for sorting subatomic particles into simple groups of eight, based on electric charge, ..
In March 2017, five new sub-atomic particles were discovered by Large Hadron Collider scientists at CERN. These particles have been collectively called Omega C0 and have been named Oc(3000)0, Oc(3050)0, Oc(3066)0, Oc(3090)0 b Oc(3119)0 as per their masses megaelectronvolts (MeV). Omega-c-zero is a baryon. It is a particle with three quarks, containing two strange and ..
In the field of Physics a quantum jump was made as the scientists at the Switzerland’s CERN research centre near Geneva discovered a sub-atomic particle ‘Higgs boson’, prevalently known as the “God particle”, conceived to be an essential building block that contributed to the shaping of the universe. A declaration to this effect was made ..
