Are all electrons equal?
Every electron is identical to every other electron. They all have the same mass, the same electric charge, and the same spin. Electrons are just one of the indistinguishable particles other examples include photons, neutrinos, protons, neutrons, and indeed most of the subatomic particles.
Do all electrons have the same mass and charge?
Every electron in the universe has exactly the same mass, exactly the same charge, and if you think about it, there’s no reason why they’d have to be. In 1940, physicist John Wheeler came up with a novel new theory that might explain why all electrons are identical.
Why do all electrons have same mass?
All electrons are the same because they are the particle manifestation of a single wave of energy that was created at the beginning of time. The wave front has the radius of the universe. The frequency of the wave gives rise to the mass and the phase of the wave gives rise to the charge.
How many electrons are in the universe?
Can an atom exist in two places at once?
Physicists call this phenomenon “quantum superposition,” and for decades, they have demonstrated it using small particles. 23 in the journal Nature Physics, an international team of researchers has caused molecule made up of up to 2,000 atoms to occupy two places at the same time.
Why can’t matter occupy the same space?
Because of its mass, all matter has inertia (the mass being the measure of its inertia) and weight, if it is in a gravitational field (see gravitation). Because it occupies space, all matter has volume and impenetrability, since two objects cannot occupy the same space simultaneously.
Do objects only exist when observed?
Observers are powerful players in the quantum world. According to the theory, particles can be in several places or states at once—this is called a superposition. But oddly, this is only the case when they aren’t observed.
