Why does the free fall acceleration of gravity of a particle vary from place to place on the earth's surface?

Please note that the differences are only slight - so slight that  you can round   the acceleration due to gravity to a value of 9.8 m/s2,  anywhere on Earth,   with (MORE)

What is the cost of a large particle accelerator?

  About 4 to 6 billion to build, then budget in about 200-250 million a year to run it   About 4 to 6 billion to build, then budget in about 200-250 million a year to r (MORE)

Can a particle have zero velocity but still has an acceleration?

Yes, but only briefly, not permanently. At an instant in time the acceleration can be non-zero while the velocity is zero. However, this would change the velocity to non-zer (MORE)

What is the difference between a cyclotron and a linear particle accelerator?

  The primary difference is that the cyclotron provides a "circular" path for the accelerated particles, and the linear accelerator provides a "straight tunnel" as a pathw (MORE)

What is the main purpose of a particle accelerator?

The main purpose of a particle accelerator is to generate  synchrotron radiation or to smash atomic nuclei together or into a  target to see what is produced from the energy (MORE)

How do particle accelerators help in performing artificial transmutations?

Sometimes artificial transmutations will not occur unless bombarding particles are moving at extremely high speeds, and since a particle accelerator can accelerate a particles (MORE)
