Some facts

  • Historically, elementary particles were such objects that have no known internal structure that is, colloquially speaking they are indivisible.
  • With the development of science, particles that were formerly considered indivisible turned out to be assembled from two or more other, smaller particles. Thus, they ceased to be elementary in a literal sense.
  • Currently, elementary particles are used interchangeably with the concept of subatomic particles, i.e. those that are "more elementary", "smaller" than the atom.
  • Traditionally, the elementary particles that make up the atoms are:
    • proton - positively charged particle being part of the atomic nucleus,
    • neutron - particle with a mass similar to proton, however without electric charge ,
    • electron - a particle with a negligible mass (in comparison with proton mass) with negative electric charge.
  • The inert composite atom is of N protons, the same number of electrons and a certain number of neutrons. Because the numbers of electrons and protons in the atom are identical, their charges are balanced and the atom as a whole is electrically neutral.
  • Atoms that differ only in the amount of neutrons are called isotopes .
  • The science department that deals with the study of elementary particles is elementary particle physics.
  • Currently, as many as several hundred of various elementary particles are known. We consider quarks, leptons and bosons transmitting interactions to be "truly" elemental (i.e. without internal structure).
  • Elementary particles can be divided into stable and unstable. The currently known permanent particles are: proton, electron, all neutrinos and photon.
