What is an Isotope?
Atoms with the same number of protons, diffferent number of neutrons

What is the charge of a proton, neutron and electron (in coloumbs)?
Proton: 1.6x10^-19 Neutron: 0 Electron: -1.6x10^-19
2 of 20
What is the mass of a proton, neutron and an electron (in kg) ?
Proton: 1.67x10^-27 Neutron: 1.67x10^-27 Electron: 9.11x10^-31
3 of 20
How do you work out specific charge?
Charge (Proton number multiply by charge of electron) DIVIDED BY Mass (Neucleon number multiply by the mass)

Describe how the strong force is felt by two neucleons.
At short range, below 0.5fm, the strong nuclear force is repulsive. Betweeen 0.5fm - 3fm the strong nuclear force is attractive. After 3fm the strong force falls away as it is a very short range force.

The production of a particle and a antiparticle is due to what theory? Describe what happens?
Pair Production. When a photon is energiesed and has enough energy to produce a particle-antiparticle pair. These then move in opposite directions due to the rupulsion of their charges. They may also collide with the opposite particle and annihiliate
8 of 20
How does matter turn into energy?
By annihilation, where a particle and an antiparticle collide, forming two gamma photons which move in opposite directions.

Stae the nature of an alpha particle
A helium nucleous

Draw a feynman diagram of electron capture
(draw)
13 of 20
When does electron capture take place?
A proton rich nucleous turns a proton into a neutron, through the weak interaction

Give the quark compostition od a proton and a neutron
Proton: uud Nuetron: udd

What is the difference between and kaon and a pion?
Kaons are made up of two quarks, one strange and one anti. Pions are made of two quarks, one ordinary one strange.
16 of 20
What is the difference between lepton and hardons?
Leptons dont experience the strong nuclear force, where as hadrons do.
17 of 20
How to disquish between mesons and baryons?
Baryons experience the weak interaction where as mesons dont.
18 of 20
What conservation rules must apply during interaction.
Baryon number, Lepton Number, Charge
