'God particle' which explains why some particles have mass and why the weak force has a much shorter range than electromagnetic force
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
One of the two known types of particles that make up the atomic nucleus
Force carriers that include the photon
1st generation lepton which is also a fermion/has particle and wave properties/has negative elementary electric charge
Elementary, -1/2 spin particle comprising 6 flavours, forming 3 generations/does not undergo strong interactions/includes electrons, muons, taus and their respective neutrinos
Guage bosons that act as exchange particles for the strong force between quarks
2nd generation lepton with negative charge and about 200 times the mass of an electron/decay into an electron and 2 neutrinos of different types
Hypothetical massive particle that always moves faster than light/coined in 1967 by Feinberg
Baryon composed of 1 up quark and 2 down quarks
Gauge boson that carries the electromagnetic interaction
Composite particle made up of 3 quarks/participate in strong interaction
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
Composite particle made of quarks held together by strong force/categorized as baryons and mesons/some are stable, some are not
Baryon composed of 2 up quarks and 1 down quark
Also known as 'weak bosons'/gauge boson that carries the weak interaction
3rd generation lepton with negative charge and about 3500 times the mass of an electron/highly penetrating but only at ultra high energy levels due to short lifetime
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
Hypothetical elementary particle that mediates gravitation
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
