  • Neutron Stars

    Science Neutron stars‚ second only to black holes and pints of Guinness as the densest objects in the Universe‚ may have liquid in their cores‚ observations of a dead star shrouded in the debris of a distant supernova suggest. Two separate teams of scientists say that a frictionless state of matter called a superfluid is the only reasonable explanation for temperature changes recently observed in the youngest known neutron star. “This the first direct evidence for superfluidity in neutron stars‚”

  • Magnetars And Neutron Stars

    has a diameter of (1.392 million km). A sugar cube size of material from a neutron star would weigh about 1 billion tons‚ roughly the size of Mount Everest according to NASA. Normally a star is seen by the light it gives off 5. However‚ neutron stars are very hot‚ roughly 100‚000K‚ as a result most of their energy comes off as x-rays (not visible light). For that reason‚ it makes them difficult to see and detect. Neutron stars have about three characteristics that can be detected. First‚ is their

  • Low Background Muon And Neutron Benchmarking For Applications In Ultra Rare Event Searches

    Low-Background Muon and Neutron Benchmarking for Applications in Ultra-Rare Event Searches John Greavu‚ Mentor: Professor Priscilla Cushman Purpose The primary purpose of this study is to measure‚ to a high precision‚ the muon and neutron backgrounds experienced at the Low Background Counting Facility (Fig. 1) in the Soudan Underground Laboratory. An active muon veto shield lining most of the interior‚ in addition to a neutron detector—the Neutron Multiplicity Meter—in the facility‚ allow for benchmark

  • Describe the Relative Size, Location, and Electrical Charge of Protons, Neutrons, and Electrons Within an Atom. Explain How the Atomic Number and Mass Number Are Determined.

    atoms. Atoms are composed of three types of particles: protons‚ neutrons‚ and electron. Protons and neutrons are responsible for most of the atomic mass. Example; if a person weighed 150 lbs. approximately 149 lbs. and 15 ounces of that person would be comprised of protons and neutrons while only 1 ounce of their being would be made of electrons. Both the protons and neutrons reside within the nucleus. Protons have a positive charge‚ neutrons have no charge; they are neutral. Electrons reside in orbitals

    smaller particles? An atom is made out of protons‚ neutrons‚ and electrons. Aside from that‚ inside an atom there is a nucleus‚ and there are also 3 energy levels. Let’s start with the nucleus‚ the nucleus is the very small center core of an atom. The nucleus is located inside the atom‚ In the center. Within the nucleus‚ is a group of smaller particles called protons and neutrons. Protons are positive electric charge located inside the nucleus. Neutrons are neutral electric charge or have no charge and

  • The effects of nuclear weapons on a city and the people in it.

    work by releasing the enormous amounts of energy that are contained in the bonds of atoms. The bonds of atoms can be broken in two ways. The first way is by fission‚ and the second way is by fusion. Fission works by the splitting of atoms with neutrons. To start the reaction‚ though‚ an initial kick of energy is needed. This energy kick usually comes from a conventional explosive (Kroenig‚ “Nuclear Weapon”). Fission weapons work by inducing a critical mass from a sub-critical mass of one of the
