Is there a fast and convenient way of calculating the neutron stopping power of materials, consisting of multiple elements (e.g. doped crystals) without the need for Monte Carlo Simulation, that is ...
This question has several parts. How does modern science catch free neutrons that are just floating around? Is there anyway to "pull" a neutron off any atom that does not involve our current ...
I am imagining an unusual experiment which will require intense beams of either protons or neutrons. The experiment would work better with neutrons, but neutron sources are much weaker messier so I ...
Watching "The Dark Knight Rises", Bane announces halfway into the movie at the stadium that what they have is a neutron bomb. But then at the end of the movie there is an actual nuclear explosion ...
Is it possible to create a neutron out of pure energy, i.e. not by bringing a bunch of already-existing quarks together? (A quick calculation using E = mc2 shows the energy required would be about 1.5 ...
Possible Duplicate: Why do neutrons repel each other? What I mean is that the neutrons are attracted to one another via gravity, so what force keeps them from collapsing to form a "neutron ...
I know outside a nucleus, neutrons are unstable and they have half life of about 15 minutes. But when they are together with protons inside the nucleus, they are stable. How does that happen? I got ...
Differences? They are both an electron and a proton, since the neutron decays to a proton and an electron, what's the difference between a neutron and proton + electron? so is it just a higher binding ...
What are the details of how neutrons are produced as a result of cosmic ray particles hitting our planet's atmosphere? For instance, what is the pathway that creates the highest number of neutrons ...
Neutron mass: 1.008664 u Proton mass: 1.007276 u Why the discrepancy? On a related note, how does one go about measuring the mass of a neutron or proton, anyway?
I can understand why 2 protons will repel each other, because they're both positive. But there isn't a neutral charge is there? So why do neutrons repel? (Do they, or have I been misinformed?) The ...
