Particle Physics

What three things are conserved in nuclear reactions? Mass-energy, momentum, and electric charge.
Why is the neutrino hard to detect? It only interacts very weakly with matter
Who first split a nucleus by artificially accelerated particles? John Cockroft and Ernest Walton
What did Cockroft and Waltons experiment verify E=mc^2
Define pair production The creation of a particle and its antiparticle from energy with momentum and electric charge being conserved
Define pair annihilation When a particle and its antiparticle are almost at rest near each other they join together to create two photons of equal energy travelling in opposite directions.
