Overview of Particle Physics

... Leptons and quarks interact through electromagnetic or weak interactions. Quarks also have strong interactions. In quantum mechanics each force field has a corresponding ”field quantum” – a force mediator. ...

James Chadwick

... • James Chadwick used scattering data to calculate the mass of this neutral particle • Since Rutherford, it had been known that the atomic mass number of a nuclei is a little more than twice the atomic number for most atoms and that essentially all the mass of the atom is concentrated in the relativ ...
