7 What is Mass? “resistance to acceleration” More fundamentally, a physical property of matter In large quantity, groups of matter seem to be always attracted to one another Personally, I’d say “mass” is a lot weirder than “charge”

8 What is charge? Physical property of matter Two flavors: “plus” and “minus”
9 What is the smallest charge possible? Millikan Oil Drop Experiment In 1910, Millikan was able to measure the charge of the electron Recall: Atom made up of nucleus and clouds of electrons outside nucleus Recall: nucleus: made up of protons and neutrons. Protons have charge equivalent to electrons. Neutrons are neutral Smallest charge possible is 1.602 x 10 -19 Coulombs (C) aka e

10 Definition of Coulomb Abbreviation: C Amount of charge through a cross- section of wire in 1 second when there is 1 Ampere (A) of current. (We’ll cover the amp later)
11 Okay, Mr. Smartguy, what about these quark-things? Quarks– particles which make up the proton and neutron The “up” quark has charge of +2/3 e The “down” quark has charge of -1/3 e They don’t count because there are no “free” quarks. They always are confined in a particle Proton- uud Neutron-udd
