Transcript of The Standard Model

Aaron Woo, Kevin Durkin, Keala Martinson The Standard Model Atom •Basic unit of matter
•Dense central nucleus
•Nucleus contains positively charged protons
•Also electrically neutral neutrons
Has negatively charged electron cloud around it Murray Gell-man Born September 15, 1929 Quarks •Discovered in Stanford Linear Accelerator Center Difference Between Chadwick and Standard Chadwick discovered the neutron
Standard model has neutrons
Also added quarks though. American physicist Won the Nobel prize for physics in 1969 He formulated the quark model of hadronic resonances. •Quarks are in the protons, neutrons, and electrons •Quarks were suggested by Murray Gell-mann and George Zweig in 1964 •Quarks were discovered in 1968 . HIGGS BOSON Inside Quark
Named after Peter Higgs
Quickly decays into other particles

Name comes from strangely long lifetime Bottom quark also known as beuty quark
