Scientists around the world have conducted experiments using particle accelerators that hint at the discovery of not only a new particle but also a new force. These particles, called ?quarks?, are said to make up the structure of protons, neutrons, and other related particles. Scientists have never actually ?seen? a quark, but when collisions between protons, electrons, or positrons are produced, much debris is dispersed. This debris is said to be quarks. There are believed to be at least six types of quarks that exist. All six of these have an antiquark, which is pretty much like the opposite. The six have some very interesting names, which include, up, down, strange, charmed, top (not yet proven to exist), and bottom. Experiments hint that quarks possess a new kind of force, which is referred to as ?color?. This theory states that each quark comes in three different colors. When the quarks are close together, they at as free particles, but as they move father apart, the attraction between them becomes stronger. Sort of like the opposite of gravity. Physicists call this theory quantum chromodynamics (QCD).
According to QCD, there should be one more particle that is yet to be discovered, called a gluon. The gluons are believed to keep the quarks ?glued? together.
A lot is yet to be discovered about quarks, but I am sure that it will prove to be a great advancement when we find out all about how quarks, color, and gluons work.
“Colors seen together to produce a pleasing affective response are said to be in harmony” (Burchett 28). Burchett spearheaded an analysis of color theory in order to clarify and define the mystery of color and what draws man to colorful paintings, like a butterfly to a multicolored flower. The systems of color that need to be rediscovered are found through several color systems, ...
