What small particle makes up most matter?
November 19, 2016 12:57PM
The word you are probably looking for is 'atoms'. However there are many different types of particle: molecules and ions are on the same scale as atoms. Atoms are made of protons, neutrons and electrons. Some of these are made up of quarks....

What is the most basic particle of matter?
Answer 1) An atom Answer 2) A spherical Standing Wave. The wave-particle duality which is at the heart of all matter and energy is a contradictory concept which is better understood when we view matter's particle effect as being caused by a spherical standing wave. The wave center gives the particle effect and the in and out waves or two waves travelling in opposite directions gives the wave effect.

What is the invisible negatively charged particle?
There are many subatomic particles with negative charge, but the first negatively charged particle that anyone learns about is the electron. It is only invisible in the sense that humans can not see it because it is so small. It is a perfectly normal subatomic particle and certainly the most common negatively charged particle in the universe.

What is The most abundant form of matter in the universe?
The most abundant form of mass is dark energy, followed by dark matter. Normal ("baryonic") matter, in other words, the matter of known composition, makes up only about 4% of the Universe. Within the "normal" matter, the most common element is hydrogen; the most common phase of matter (or state of matter) is plasma, because that is what stars are made of.

Are particles unable to be destroyed?
The worlds most famous equation, E=mc^2, describes the relationship between matter and energy. The energy contained in matter is its weight in kilograms times the speed of light (300 000 000 m/s) squared, an enormous number. One of the most basic laws of the universe is that energy never can disappear or be created, but it can change form. E=mc^2 tells us that matter is simply one form of energy, and it can change form into another form of energy, destroying the matter in the process. Perhaps the best example is anti-matter which will annihilate with ordinary matter and release all the energy concentrated in it as light, destroying both the particle and its anti-particle. The reverse is also possible: a sufficiently energetic photon can create a particle and an anti-particle, destroying the photon.
