    Why does one take a nap? or play an instrument? Or play a sport? Or study hard and get good grades? Why do people give up all they have to find love? To find companionship? To find solace? Why is it that people invest in relationships? In ideas? In technologies? All these questions can be answered by one overarching theme – reason. Reason dictates all we do, big or small, difficult or easy, fast or time consuming. The reason behind why a person does what he or she does is not an easy question to

  • Does Antimatter Exist

    933 Words  | 4 Pages

    Antimatter (Draft) This isn't a trick question. Antimatter is exactly what you might think it is -- the opposite of normal matter, of which the majority of our universe is made. Until just recently, the presence of antimatter in our universe was considered to be only theoretical. In 1928, British physicist Paul A.M. Dirac revised Einstein's famous equation E=mc². Dirac said that Einstein didn't consider that the "m" in the equation -- mass -- could have negative properties as well as positive. Dirac's

  • Importance Of Descartes On Physiology

    1026 Words  | 5 Pages

    Hitherto, I have explained some elements concerning Descartes’ and vitalistic theories about physiology. On the one hand, I have highlighted that Descartes’ approach to physiology is founded on his mechanical conception of nature, which allows him to use the laws of nature in order to explain the particular functioning of the human body. In general, Descartes argues that God creates matter in a uniform way and he separates it, creating individual bodies, through the introduction of motion in the

  • Bevatron: The Antiproton

    585 Words  | 3 Pages

    Antimatter is composed of antiparticles, which are similar to particles of normal matter, since the corresponding antiparticles have the same mass and size, however they have the opposite charge. For example, positrons have the same size and weight as electrons, however they are positively charged, and antiprotons are the same size and weight as protons, however they are negatively charged. Due to antimatters similarity to normal matter, it is able to make elements, molecules, planets and possible

  • The String Theory

    1019 Words  | 5 Pages

    Sub-atomic particles, known as quarks, electrons, photons, and neutrinos were strewn across expanding space. Equal amounts of matter and antimatter particles began to collide and annihilate each other. Gravity, strong and weak nuclear forces, and electromagnetic forces soon came into play. As the universe started to cool, fundamental particles called quarks began to smash together forming protons and neutrons. They, in turn, merged to create the nuclei of simple elements, beginning with hydrogen

  • Leonardo Vetria Research Paper

    1185 Words  | 5 Pages

    Vittoria and her father had created antimatter in a CERN lab. This was doubly important to her father because he was a priest, and the discovery promised to give humanity access to the secrets of creation. However, it is also a great threat because antimatter explodes when it comes into contact with normal matter. This becomes a pressing issue when they learn that their biggest sample has been stolen, and the battery that generates the magnetic field (and keeps the antimatter stable) has only a twenty-four-hour

  • Examples Of Conspiracy In Angels And Demons

    1193 Words  | 5 Pages

    The title of this project, conspiracy, is taken from Dan Brown’s novel Angles and Demons. The story of the novel is shown to be a result of the conspiracy formed by a member of the Church society. In a dictionary, the word ‘conspiracy’ is defined as “the act of secretly planning to do something that is harmful or illegal”. However, this is not it. Conspiracy is formed to achieve goals which are made not by the people, but by their greed for power, wealth and respect. In Angels and Demons, power is

  • The Big Bang Theory Essay

    891 Words  | 4 Pages

    after the Big Bang the universe was tremendously hot as a result of both matter and antimatter moving apart in all directions. (For every type of matter particle, there also exists a corresponding antimatter particle. Antimatter particles look and behave just like their corresponding matter particles, except they have opposite charges.) As it began to cool there was about an equal abundance of matter and antimatter. As these two materials are
