    Michael Balmer's Notes: Neutron

    Quote from Michael Balmer's Facebook Profile, Note.

    Structure and geometry of charge distribution[edit]

    An article published in 2007 featuring a model-independent analysis concluded that the neutron has a negatively charged exterior, a positively charged middle, and a negative core.[64] In a simplified classical view, the negative "skin" of the neutron assists it to be attracted to the protons with which it interacts in the nucleus. (However, the main attraction between neutrons and protons is via the nuclear force, which does not involve charge.)

    The simplified classical view of the neutron's charge distribution also "explains" the fact that the neutron magnetic dipole points in the opposite direction from its spin angular momentum vector (as compared to the proton). This gives the neutron, in effect, a magnetic moment which resembles a negatively charged particle. This can be reconciled classically with a neutral neutron composed of a charge distribution in which the negative sub-parts of the neutron have a larger average radius of distribution, and therefore contribute more to the particle's magnetic dipole moment, than do the positive parts that are on average nearer the core.


    excerpt from Wikipedia



    The Neutron particle, I must admit to the Electron being my favorite particle, I maintain that, without it there are no molecular structures any to be found, but this is not about my bias, it is about..the Neutron.



    The reason why I began with this excerpt is because of the teaching of the neutrality or no charge of the Neutron but having a magnetic moment,or being used as a catalyst for fission in heavy elements,the baryon number and other contradiction associated with this particle,as I do I would like to see readings on this topic and not just from your favorite Model, doing that, yes there would be no contradictions,l et's call it expanding our deductive reasoning, the Neutron, the larger of the three subatomic particle in the construct of the atom, it's importance on a scale of one to ten?

    TEN,why? because it is the glue ... not gluon the regulates the charge and binding power of the elements/atoms... now I put elements and atoms together because for those interested in Chemistry they are elements and to physicists they are atoms, prior to 1932 when James Chadwick discovered the Neutron, the concept of nuclei included the electron along with the proton, no doubt based on the Hydrogen Model, and with numerous experiments based the energy and interactions with in the nucleus, the mass, the charge,it was determined the second nuclei could not be electrons, this was ruled out by the amount of "energy" to stablize the nucleus and the numbers dismissed the electron, as well as the Pauli Exclusion Principle and the Uncertainty Principle, but what is it that makes the Neutron so vital and yet not be present in Hydrogen, well for starters it stablizes the nucleus, it aides in decay and the formation of other elements, but why not in Hydrogen?

    This the most adbundant and most volatile of elements known to exist and no Neutron, so how can it rate a ten when it has no association with the most adbundant element?

    Well lets say it is in Hydrogen, that would make it a radioactive isotope and existence would very different but it is not so a dead end there, we need to look at what has been verified or at least accepted that it is a composite particle made up of Quarks which are held together by Gluons, and these Quarks are minute charges negative and positive, though these charges are referred to as Flavours of the QCD, up and downs,1/3 and 2/3, it is stable with the nucleus and unstable outside the nuclues which infers either the proton and or the electron abides in its stability, but why?

    Why on either?

    There is a possibilty because of it's ability to be one or both of the charges and it's oscillation, or swirl connects to and fro of it's charge output...maybe, is there truely no connection between the neutron and the element of Hydrogen?

    I believe there is, and although it has been said not be but Hydrogen is the Daughter of the Neutron which is another discussion on the element Hydrogen,please read more on the Neutron, there are many publications in and out of your favorite Models.
