fundamental particles
Fundamental particles
  • Until mid-20th century, it was though that all atoms consisted of electrons, protons and neutrons
  • Due to the increasing sophistication of the particle accelerator, and increased sensitivity of equipment measuring cosmic rays, more and more particles were being discovered
  • Eventually, this “particle zoo” was arranged in a more orderly way

(b) describe a simple quark model of hadrons in terms of up, down and strange quarks and their respective antiquarks, taking into account their charge, baryon number and strangeness;

properties of neutrons and protons1
Properties of neutrons and protons
  • Proton
    • uud
    • total charge = ⅔ + ⅔ - ⅓ = 1
  • Neutron
    • udd
    • total charge = ⅔ - ⅓ - ⅓ = 0
e describe how there is a weak interaction between quarks and that this is responsible for decay
(e) describe how there is a weak interaction between quarks and that this is responsible for β decay
decay
β decay
  • Nucleus is held together by the strong nuclear force
  • This explains α decay, but not β decay
  • There is another force, the weak interaction or weak nuclear force
  • Acts on quarks and leptons
  • Responsible for β decay
slide15
(f) state that there are two types of β decay

(i) state that a β- particle is an electron and a β+particle is a positron

decay1
β decay
  • There are two types of β decay:
  • Beta-minus (β-)
    • electron
    • negative charge –e
  • Beta-plus (β+)
    • positron
    • positive charge +e
slide17

(g) describe the two types of β decay in terms of a simple quark model;

(h) state that (electron) neutrinos and electron) antineutrinos are produced during β+ and β-decays, respectively

decay2
β-decay

Electron

Anti-neutrino

In β- decay a neutron is changed into a proton, in other words uddchanges into uud. A d changing to a u can only happen through the weak interaction.

decay3
β+decay

Electron

neutrino

In β+ decay a proton is changed into a neutron, in other words uudchanges into udd. A u changing to a d can only happen through the weak interaction.
