I‘ve been searching for it on many different websites and they all basically say the same thing. The subatomic particles’ mass is so small that other forces (as the weak force, strong force and electromagnetic force) act on them much more effectively, in such a way that particle physicists may completely ignore gravity when attempting to explain a physical phenomenon involving them.
Ok, my question is: Although the gravitational pull may be extremely weak, it still exists. Shouldn’t it account for something, and thus be considered, in some special situations? For example: Let‘s say we could isolate one subatomic particle (vacuum) inside of a high container in such a way that all the other interactions (weak, strong and electromagnetic) could be mitigated to a value lesser than the (tiny) gravitational pull acting upon this subatomic particle. Question: In this situation, would we observe a tendency of this particle to be dragged to the bottom of the container (gravitational drag towards the center of the earth), after a sufficient amount of time?
