Textbook Problem

A virtual particle having an approximate mass of may be associated with the uni?cation of the strong and electroweak forces. For what length of time could this virtual particle exist (in temporary violation of the conservation of mass-energy as allowed by the Heisenberg uncertainty principle)?

To determine

The duration for which the virtual particle can exist.

Explanation

Given info:

A virtual particle having an approximation mass of 1014GeV/c2 may be associated with the unification of the strong and electroweak forces.

Formula used:

Using the expression,

  ΔEΔth4π

Here, Δt is uncertainty time, ΔE is uncertainty energy and h is Plank`s constant.

Expression can also wright,

  Δt=h4πΔE=h4πΔmc2

Calculation:

We have,

  h=4.14×1024GeV
