Title: A Brief Introduction to Particle Physics PDF
Url: http://www.lepp.cornell.edu/Education/rsrc/LEPP/Education/TeacherReso...
Creator: Mistry, Nari
Publisher: Cornell University
Description: Created by Senior Research Associate Nari Mistry at Cornell University, this 23-page pdf gives a brief but thorough introduction to particle physics. Complete with illustrations, this document covers sub-atomic particles (quarks and leptons) as well as the Big Bang, matter and anti-matter, and physics experiments. There is also material which discusses the fundamental forces that govern sub-atomic particles - gravity, the Weak Force, electromagnetism, and the Strong Force – and how scientists have been working toward a theory of unification that combines these four forces to create a universal force. This is a great resource for physics teachers, as it is a ready-to-go tutorial to introduce students to particle physics before the discussion in the classroom becomes more in-depth.
