Activity: Particle interactions

IB Physics: Activity: Particle interactions

Ever wondered how non-contact forces can be experienced across space? It"s time that you were introduced to the idea of exchange particles so that you can describe, for example, the force between electrons in terms of the exchange of virtual photons or the nuclear force in terms of the exchange of virtual mesons. You will construct Feynman diagrams to represent the interactions between electrons and photons.Topics: particle...
