Why does matter clump the way it does?

8 posts in this topic

The Bohr model of atomic structure is well known:

- neutrons in the nucleus

- protons in the nucleus

- electrons in orbit around the nucleus (in accordance with harmonic rules)

Then there are solar systems. They two have patterns, a central star, usually non-stars in its orbit.

After that, galaxies.

Why does matter clump in these predictable ways?

One theory is the Higgs boson. From Wikipedia:

The Higgs boson or Higgs particle is an elementary particle initially theorised in 1964,[6][7] and tentatively confirmed to exist on 14 March 2013.[8] The discovery has been called "monumental"[9][10] because it appears to confirm the existence of the Higgs field,[11][12] which is pivotal to the Standard Model and other theories within particle physics. In this discipline, it explains why some fundamental particles have mass when the symmetries controlling their interactions should require them to be massless, and—linked to this—why the weak force has a much shorter range than the electromagnetic force.

In summation: because it exists 'everywhere' in the same 'amount' the Higgs imposes the same mass all over the Universe, simple. (not the 'same mass', misspoke there, it gives the object the same mass all over the universe because of that 'same density of Higgs all over')

...because it's wearing heavy boots?

it's probably like mud.

"...because it's wearing heavy boots?" e

e,

I'd prefer to skip the technical jargon, and advanced physics concepts. I suspect most of us have not been to grad. school about it.

"it's probably like mud." CR

What an insight!

It includes mud! Wait until I tell the president!

It is really not that predicable, one of the biggest problems that is trying to be solved with physics is trying to reconcile quantum physics and relativistic physics. Basically matter on the extremely large scale acts completely different on the extremely small scale.

"It is really not that predicable, one of the biggest problems that is trying to be solved with physics is trying to reconcile quantum physics and relativistic physics. Basically matter on the extremely large scale acts completely different on the extremely small scale." DH

Laymen may take comfort in the illusion that physics provides a uniform set of rules that govern the universe.

It doesn't.

There are not only two different sets of rules. There are three different sets of rules that govern the universe that we know of so far.

- On the very small scale matter follows rules for chemistry, and atomic physics.

- In our terrestrial (human) experience, physics seems to follow the laws provided us by Sir Isaac Newton.

- On cosmic scale, the other two groups of laws of physics fall by the wayside, ceding territory to a third set of rules, identified by Einstein.

These three groups of rules are not compatible with one another. That they are not is not a violation of logic, but a manifestation of reality.

Dark Matter and Gravity

The simple matter which is predicted to exist in the cosmic microwave background radiation (the afterglow of the initial matter emitted from the universe is in fact clumpy, with clusters of Big Bang, when some parts of the matter grew to become bigger clumps due to the cumulative effects of galaxies we see today.

However, the modelling of this theory revealed that the 13.7 billion years which has elapsed since the universe to have developed, by the gradual process of density, out of the tiny imperfections and clumps indicated by the COBE satellite. This could only have happened if there was, and/or is, much more universe than our current estimates of the stars. This has led to speculation about so-called "light, heat, radio waves, nor any other kind of radiation (thus making extremely hard to detect).
