This section is part of the HSC Physic syllabus Module 8: From the universe to the atom, Deep inside the Atom. Let’s investigate the Standard Model of matter.
A particle accelerator is an apparatus for accelerating subatomic particles to high velocities by means of electric or electromagnetic fields. The accelerated particles are generally made to collide with other particles.
Let’s investigate the operation and role of particle accelerators in obtaining evidence that tests and/or validates aspects of theories.
