What is Higgs Boson?

Why do we need Higg's Boson? Helen Heath explains why the Standard Model needs the Higgs boson. http://physicsworld.com/cws/article/multimedia/50419 Gordon Fraser and Michael Riordan argue that the boson discovered at CERN should be known not as the Higgs boson, but the "higgson" Read more at http://physicsworld.com/cws/article/print/2012/jul/04/introducing-the-higgson Related articles How does Higg's Boson transfer mass?

A question from velocity time graph

if graph of velocity v and time t for a particle moving along straight line is parabola symmetric about time axis, then the relation between acceleration a and time t for particle is …. ? (Divya posted this question)

LHC discovery

Salfronz asks: “When they talk about finding a particle like the Higgs boson, and looking in certain energy levels, does this really mean that the particle is that equivalent mass?  It seems like at the energy levels they’re looking at that these particles would be easily detectable if they actually had the mass to correlate [...]

Black holes and gravitons ! Anything wrong here?

If no particle can escape from a black hole, how does quantum mechanics (which postulates gravitons) explain that a black hole’s gravitational field extends beyond its event horizon? If the force of gravity is transmitted by an exchange of gravitons, they’d have to escape from the black hole. I know they’re massless, but so are [...]

A Few Problems from Kinematics

A body falling freely from rest has velocity v after it falls a height h . Calculate the distance it should fall down further for its velocity to become double A particle in uniform acceleration in a straight line has a speed of v m/s at position x meter is given by √(25-16x). What is [...]
