DescriptionParticle
Follows Pauli exclusion principle/includes all quarks & leptons as well as particles made from an odd number of these (incl. all baryons)/contrasts with bosons/name coined by Dirac
Baryon composed of 2 up quarks and 1 down quark
Elementary, -1/2 spin particle comprising 6 flavours, forming 3 generations/does not undergo strong interactions/includes electrons, muons, taus and their respective neutrinos
Composite particle made of quarks held together by strong force/categorized as baryons and mesons/some are stable, some are not
Has 'flavors' of up, down, bottom, top, strange, & charm/named by Gell-Mann from Joyce's Finnegan's Wake/experiences all 4 fundamental forces/elementary fermion with spin -1/2
One of the two known types of particles that make up the atomic nucleus
Force carriers that include the photon
Gauge boson that carries the electromagnetic interaction
DescriptionParticle
Baryon composed of 1 up quark and 2 down quarks
Neutral, weakly interacting elementary particle w/half-integer spin/affected only by weak force/created by radioactive decay, nuclear reactions, or cosmic rays hitting atmosphere
Anitmatter counterpart of electron (charge of +1 e)/generated by namesake emission rad. decay (subtype of beta decay) through weak interactions or by pair productions of photons
'God particle' which explains why some particles have mass and why the weak force has a much shorter range than electromagnetic force
Guage bosons that act as exchange particles for the strong force between quarks
1st generation lepton which is also a fermion/has particle and wave properties/has negative elementary electric charge
Also known as 'weak bosons'/gauge boson that carries the weak interaction
