Quarks are fundamental particles of the universe and cannot be subdivided (according to current knowledge). Enzymes are proteins that catalyze reactions and there are no reactions that can 'remove sections' of quarks, which are basically indivisible. If you know about restriction endonucleases and DNA ligases, you'll know that these enzymes can cut and ligate together different pieces of DNA.

What does it mean when scientists say that quarks are elementary particles?

When scientists say that quarks are elementary particles it means that they are NOT made up of other particles.

Are atoms still the smallest thing on earth?

No. Scientists have discovered sub-atomic particles such as quarks.

What quarks are in protons?

There are no quarks in an electron. Electrons are leptons, which are not made of quarks. Further, the electron is a fundamental particle, just like the quark. That means that neither quarks or electrons are made up of other particles, per the Standard Model of particle physics.

How small is a quarks?

Quarks can actually vary greatly in size. The most common types of Quarks are Up and Down (scientists are not the most creative when it comes to names) and they have the mass of about 1/400 and 1/200 (respectfully) the mass of a proton. But some quarks, like the Top quark (another uncreative name) has the mass of the entire Tunston atom.

How are quarks found?

They are estimated, they cannot be isolated and therefore cannot be found. But by using particle colliders, scientists have determined that they do exist. This is because of the "color jet" phenomenon in particle colliders when a quark and antiquark pair together. The main point is, that because of the strong force, quarks inside a particle cannot be seperated; therefore quarks can never be studied singularly.

How many different quarks are there in Chemistry?

In an atom, the neutrons and protons are made up of up quarks and down quarks. Strange quarks, charms quarks, top quarks, and bottom quarks also exist, but do not play as much of a role in the structure of an atom.

Is a quark in a nucleus of an atom?

Hadrons are composed of 3 quarks. Protons and neutrons are hadrons. The 2 types of quarks used in this instance are up quarks and down quarks. Yes, there are quarks in a nucleus.
