What is particle collision?

Particle collision usually refers to two subatomic particles slamming into each other at high speeds causing them to break into smaller particles. These speeds are created by particle accelerators.

The size of particle can be absorbed in biology?

The size of the particles that can be absorbed in Biology are very small sized particles.

Each fundamental atomic particle has an opposite particle A collision of these opposites will result in the annihilation of each particle These types of particles are referred to as?

Anti-matter. Antimatter.

Each fundamental atomic particle has an opposite particle. A collision of these opposites will result in the annihilation of each particle. What are these types of particles called?

Anti-particles. In the case of the (normal negatively-charged) electron, the anti-particle has a specific name; the positron. Since normal particles are the building blocks of matter, a collection of anti-particles are termed "anti-matter".

Why do particles of matter transfer thermal?

They transfer energy because as they gain heat which gives the particles more energy to move freely, the particles will inevitably collision into each other, so as this collision occurs the thermal energy is transfered to the newly hit particle, this would explain why heat is transfered quicker in solids, because the area between each particle is less than liquids and gases because it's particles are closely packed.

How does average particle speed affect the reaction rate?

As the speed of the particles increase, it causes them to collide with the other particles in which they are reacting with more frequently, increasing the reaction rate.

If an particle hits a gold nucleus in a head on collision the particle will not be deflected very much?

False, the particle will be deflected immensely.

How do the particle move in a gas?

the atoms and molecules are free to move independently, colliding frequently.

Which subatomic particle or particles have a negative charge?

This particle is the electron.

What increases the reaction rate by increasing particle speed?

An increase in temperature will increase the speed of the particles and cause the particles to both bump into one another more frequently and with more energy thus increasing the reaction rate.

Decreasing particle size collision frequency of reactants?


Particle moving so fast they have overcome attraction between them move independently and collide frequently?

This would mean that the particles have gained enough energy to become a gas.
