From Mg24 to Ar36

The color force holds the quarks together as protons and neutron while the electromagnetic force arranges those protons and neutrons into a hexagonal lattice like structure. The hexagonal structure is the result of triangles formed by the three quarks that compose protons and neutrons.

The model presented here is a lattice structure based on the interrelationship of electrical and magnetic fields of the quarks which form the protons and neutrons.

  • The foundation particles are up quarks represented by the black nodes and down quarks represented by the white nodes.
  • The first components are protons represented by two black nodes connected to a white node by three blue struts, and neutrons are represented by two white nodes connected to a black node by three white struts.
  • The second component, the alpha particle, is made up of two protons and two neutrons arranged in a two-layer, six sided lattice structure of twelve quarks, six up and six down.
  • The third component or first nuclear structure, the carbon12 ring, is composed of three alpha particles in the form of a ring.
  • The second nuclear structure is the core. The core is the primary nuclear structure upon which all following parts of the nucleus is built.

Adding two neutrons to magnesium Mg24 starts the third carbon ring. The two neutrons are added like the two neutrons that were added to carbon C12 to start the second carbon ring. This third ring grows in the same manner as the second carbon ring.

First Mg25 and Mg26 are created.

Add a proton to magnesium Mg26 and create aluminum Al27

Add a proton to aluminum Al27 and create silicon Si28.

Add two neutrons one at a time to Si28 to create Si29

and Si30

Add a proton to Si30 and create phosphorus P31.

Add a proton to phosphorus P31 and produce Sulfur S32

Add two neutrons one at a time to S32 to create S33

and S34

Add a proton to S34 and create chlorine Cl35.

Add a proton to chlorine Cl35 to close the last ring to make argon Ar36. Argon Ar36 completes the core with nine alpha particles that form three carbon rings stacked on top of each other. This competes the core of the nucleus.
