What affects the speed of a particle in a particle accelerator?
Particle physics is the branch of physics that studies the type and nature of the particles that make up all types of matter and radiant energy. Particle physics is most concerned with the investigation of the smallest detectable particles and force carriers like bosons, leptons, and quarks.
Answer and Explanation: 1
Particle accelerators use electric fields to accelerate the particles inside them which are in turn guided and focused by magnetic fields. The speed...

Particle physics can be described using the standard model, which demonstrates the interaction of the four forces between particles: electromagnetism, gravity, and strong and weak nuclear force. Learn to identify the particles of the standard model and also the limitations in its use.
