"Suppose one electron is knocked out of the K shell. This process leaves a vacancy, which we’ll call a hole. (One electron remains in the K shell.) The hole can then be filled by an electron falling ...
In an analogy to the neutron, which decays rapidly as a free particle, but when bound in a nucleus it is stable, would it be possible to crease a structure that permits the stability of muons - be it ...
It is widely known that the probability of $n$ decays from one system to another $A \rightarrow B$ (e.g., electrons decaying from one atomic energy level to another or muons decaying into neutrinos ...
It is known that matter and antimatter annihilate each others when they "touch" each others. And as far as I know, the concept of "touching" as our brain gets it is not true on the atomic level since ...
I'm wondering if it would be possible to map out all the different types of molecules, atoms and nuclei and their energy levels on one page (even if in a generalised way)? But perhaps I'm referring to ...
The electron contains finite negative charge.The same charges repel each other.What makes electron stable and why does it not burst? Is it a law of nature that the electron charge is the smallest ...
