From Unclear to Nuclear - HOME -

Please excuse us while we build this site.
What is so different about this model?
First: The quarks in the protons and neutrons play an active part in developing the structure of the nucleus.
Second: In addition to the strong force, the electric charges and magnetic dipoles of the quarks also participate in controllings nuclear structure.
You are about to embark on an exciting and very informative trip through the nucleus of the elements as they proceed along the “Valley of Stability”.
The journey begins when you first realize that three of anything, no matter how you put them together, forms a triangular shaped object.
Thus, protons and neutron are triangular ovoids not spheres.
Triangular ovoids come together to form a hexagonal lattice. Included is a model of the nucleus of carbon 12 built with ZOME constructs and based on the quarks that make up the nucleons. Black nodes represent "up" quarks and white nodes represent "down" quarks. Blue struts connect 3 quarks to represent triangular protons and white struts connect 3 quarks to represent triangular neutrons.

Currently this website contains about 60% of our data.
When data is in a presentable form it is added to this site.
Additionally we are developing more data and information all the time.
Wow, and I do mean WOOOW!
the neutron proton ratio,
Other mystifying paradoxical aspects of the nucleus are answered via self-generating facets of this model.
