Could you please explain how are getting lines of force from the field theory? Also if the vitual particles are responsible how can we have charge field like positive or negative but not have north pole and only south pole on magnets
Just wondering, how can we know the higgs boson field is evenly spread throughout the universe? What if there is a different distribution billions of light years away, how would that affect the mass of an object or person?
huh. i thought the things about particles and fields was the other way around; that the fields permiate the entire universe and particles are place in that field where there is a bit more energy than in the rest of the field, an excitation,.
Without conciseness the higgs boson, and the so called big bang and everything else would have never been or become to exist.
A greater power can explain you, but you can not explain a greater power.
Isa_29:16 Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter's clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?
Isa_45:9 Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands?
Light does have mass, photons are effected by gravity, and also gives off heat, and is effected by friction, odd is that yes it is like a proton, but less mass than an electon, meaning it's probably missing some quarks, which unbalances it and causes it to wave as it's traveling, and they can gain it back after a period of time, but there is also super light in this theory which can be other super light light or super heavy light the visible spectrum of light is the fastest of all light and the color of that specific wave length is how hot the individual atom was when it emitted. Which at the right temperature it lets off equal levels of light making it white, which is actually the mid point of plasma heat, the color see see the sun from space is white, its true color is Green, any hotter more blue will show any colder the more red that shows, and light does have mass that's why light cannot escape blackholes.
Odd right? Then slows back down from gamma rays to Microwaves still not as fast as visible light. Gamma rays being the fastest in a straight line but the waves it's near the speed of light. Draw a straight line across a piece of paper as fast as you can, then take the same piece of paper and draw a wave with exactly 2 mm apart and 3 inches from center at the same speed. Proving that gamma rays are faster per photon than visible light, again light is a physical thing, it has mass and stores energy, and releases energy as well wail maintaining the law of thermal dynamics. Lol
Light slows down after a certain distance so therefore light is affected by friction, it's not necessarily that the speed of which light travels is effected at first, it is the wavelength; until, yet again, it slows to the point it becomes microwaves. We use the coloration change to determine the distance of galaxies within our local cluster. then we have to switch to infrared. Thus light slowing down, due to quantum forces. Such as the photons hitting hydrogen atoms.
I wanted to tell a story to you with the hopes lots of people will hear it. So, I spoke to a guy that worked with the FBI on death row. I spoke with him several times, but the least time I spoke to him I asked him, since he worked with the FBI on death row, if he had ever seen the heading on the CIA website under jobs and technology, "Technology so advanced it's classified." He said that was absolutely the case, and, in fact, he had recently spoken with someone who was a CIA agent about that topic. The agent told him he worked in the forest or jungle in South America in the 1980s, that's the eighties, about four decades ago, and he was using was is comparable to iPad technology right now. It was JUST AS ADVANCED ALL THE WAY BACK THEN as the iPad technology is today. He then went on to point out that they are AT LEAST three to four decades AHEAD of the rest of the world in technology. I THINK EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW THAT! Think of the implications! Please share and remember this story! Thank you so much! Wendy Werner Troob
Me confused. How does the Higgs fit into the standard model? As I (highschool science flunk) understand it, the SM is a 4x4 grid. The first three columns comprise the main flavours of quarks and leptons. It is my (poor) understanding that the 4th column comprises 4 forces and their carriers: Electro-magnetic/photon, nuclear-force/Mesons, weak-force/W&z bosons and, Gravity/Gravitons(hypothetical). So in which force is the Higgg? Is Mass a 5th force? Please explain in idiot-proof terms. Thank you.
Great video, just one thing near the start: as Derek mentioned in a Veritasium video (I forget the name), most of the mass of protons and neutrons comes from their energy, due to the famous (non-relativistic) equation, E=mc^2
My understanding is that it's the flux tubes/QCD strings in which the vacuum energy is cleared out so that the quarks in a proton or neutron can exchange color charge with each other. It takes a lot of energy to clear out the energy. Some also comes from virtual quarks momentarily having energy.
So what I got from this explanation is the Higgs Field gives particles mass. Since photons are essentially electrons with out mass, that means they are either able to break past the field or unaffected by it. By that rational, does that mean that the Higgs Field is what causes the "cosmic speedlimit" of the speed of light? If we discovered a way to get a ship and its contents to counteract the Higgs Field we could theoretically surpass the speed of light? This all based on the fact we overcome the probable violent physical side effects of making large amounts of solid matter not have mass while maintaining the ability to return to having mass without changing. I am interested in hearing anything anyone has to weigh in on this.
Given the fact that these elementary particles do not last long in our time, that is not necessarily equivalent to "particle lifetime." What may be 10^-10 sec for a particle in our time can be an eternity for elementary particles. We also need to consider the fact that the particle is tested in LHC in a post-Bang era. What is most concerning is where did the Higgs field come from? Moments before the Bang if not the Big Bang, Higgs field may not have been present because energy did not have a mass and thus the Bang that resulted in mass which a state of energy. What may be interesting is that because we have mass, time becomes relevant. If there was no mass, time is not relevant. Because elementary particles condensed into mass of protons and neutrons that cannot travel faster that light, time became relevant.
Those are what Tesla called Ether. And we don't coax them into existence. They permeate the entire universe. They are photons, dipole particles of energy. They create a magnetic field when we send charged particles through those particles. They are not strings that appear in and out of existence, they are already here all around us. Everything in the universe is made of photons, including atoms. These particle permeate the electrons around the atom, set up magnetic fields around them and keep them in their orbitals. They do not pop out of electrons, they come out of the magnetic fields around the electron.
The magnetic field varies with distance by the inverse square law, not exponentially. The virtual particles emitted are photons, they don't travel in the bizarre directionless paths shown. They go straight out. The virtual particles given off at a certain time would form a sphere. The area of the sphere is proportionate to the radius squared, the rise of the inverse square law.
"Photon do not have mass" Photon have no motionless mass. That is true. But have mass if it is motion and interact with gravitation, for example black holes, galaxies. Photons make pressure when hit a plate and so on.
this might sound weird..... but if the higgs "particle/field thing" is spread uniformly throuought the universe, and the universe is still expanding.... wouldnt this field become weaker as it was more widely distributed? so... things would get lighter over time?
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
