Help me complete the standard model!

Postby Aelfyre » Mon May 09, 2011 2:25 pm UTC

Ok, so I noticed some instances of symmetry between quantum level and macroscopic level structures today..

specifically there are 6 flavors of quark and 6 colors of M & Ms.. creepy huh? but it gets wierder.. obviously the Ms are the particles and the Ws are their anti-particle equivalents because this bag had slightly more Ms than Ws..

So that being said I decided to recreate the standard model.. so far I've only got four particles...

Anyone else have any other recipes to contribute? :)

That should keep you occupied for a while. :) Basically, any set of 2 or 3 that ends up with an integer charge tends to work as a particle, at least temporarily, before they decay (or in this case, get eaten ;))

thanks! yeah the only thing I got figure out is how physicists all these years have gotten it so wrong.. from my data the half life of a proton is approximately 45 seconds :)

EDIT: On a related note? HOE. LEE. CRAP! I'm gonna need a bigger bag of M&Ms...

no but it almost was.. I also stumbled across a certain number of 3s and Es but I discarded those since those must correspond to particle of imaginary mass.

I was thinking of Pixie Stix as Fermions...

I just opened a bag of m&ms, hoping to find exciting new particles. I ended up with your quarks. I then remembered seeing an interesting case. It may be a boson, but you are the expert in the field Aelfyre... What do you think?

Hmm well at first glance it's definitely a Force carrying particle of some kind.. this warrants further investigation.. :D

"Help me complete the standard model!"

That is the title of the game on the children's place mat of the smartest restaurant in the world.
The thing about recursion problems is that they tend to contain other recursion problems.

"complete the standard model"
In that case, you need more particles:
Electrons, Muons, Tauons and their neutrinos - well, maybe you can get away without the neutrinos and just say they interact not enough to see them.
Photons, W- and Z-bosons and gluons (there are 8 gluons, but 1 is enough as you don't use colors for the quarks)
