Periodic Table of Particles

Background

Numerous subatomic particles have been found in nature or within particle accelerator labs. In the calculations section, these particles were found to have a linear solution, similar to atomic mass vs atomic number. The linear solution for atomic elements eventually led to the creation of the Periodic Table of Elements.

Thus, to illustrate that particles are similar to the formation of atomic elements, a table was created to organize these particles – The Periodic Table of Particles.

 


Periodic Table of Subatomic Particles

 


 

How to Read the Table

The upper-left quadrant of each cell in the table contains the neutrino wave count. The upper-right quadrant contains the predicted rest mass from the Longitudinal Energy Equation, and this is compared to the Particle Data Group (PDG) values from experiments for these particles, located at the bottom of each cell. The values used for rest mass of particles are based on the neutral charge form of the particle, unless a neutral charge form did not exist. In that latter case, a charge form of the particle was used. Particles were then placed into the cell that best fit their experimental rest mass values.

 

Example – Tau Electron

The tau electron (τ) has a PDG rest mass value of 1.777 GeV. It was placed into cell 50, which has a predicted 1.756 GeV rest mass value. Therefore, it has a neutrino count of 50.

 

Example – Kaons

There are three kaons (K). Two are charged particles (K and K+) and one is a neutral particle (K0). The rest masses are slightly different. K and K+ have a PDG rest mass value of 0.4937 GeV. K0 has a PDG rest mass value of 0.4976 GeV. Like other charged particles, the difference in rest mass value fits within the cell range, so only one particle was placed into the table. The neutral particle value of 0.4976 GeV was used and the generic kaon symbol, K, is placed into cell 39, which has a predicted rest mass 0.5036 GeV. The kaons, charged or neutral, therefore have a neutrino count of 39.

Note: The table does not consider spin, charge or color of particles which may lead to further reorganization of the table in the future.
