The Pion

Published by under Quantum Mechanics

As an example of one of the several particles that must stay, the pion “has a range of 1 Fermi”.  This is a compression factor of close to 4 compared to a graviton.  It is NOT a graviton, even though it probably was one at an earlier point in time.

The pion is a “mediator of nuclear force.” *
