What are particle accelerators?

They accelerate particles using magnets. Once going at speed close to the speed of light, particles smash into each other. Accelerators are used to examine the properties of s

What does a particle accelerator do?

A particle accelerator is a VERY large device with a large tube shaped in a circle. It accelerates a stream of atoms in opposite directions using very large and multiple serie

How fast do particles move in a particle accelerator?

The most advanced ones accelerate particles 99.9999% the speed of light. Although some people have claimed that they create black holes, they most certainly do not- this would

How do particle accelerators find new particles?

It's sort of a multi-step process, but the short answer is thatphysicists have 1) a catalog (so to speak) of known particles,including their mass, charge, lifetime, decay prod
