_The vast emptiness which surrounds the universe, was not filled with things seen, with sun or moon or stars; it stretched boundless, penetrating everywhere, disuniting everything, body from body, particle from particle_.
The same phenomenon occurs when the gamma particle is absorbed in the receiving nucleus.
Hm. Instead, they use some very beautiful dimensional analysis to come up with a new dimensionless parameter, what they call the particle momentum number Pa, which seems to capture more of the physics here - for very large and very small values of Pa, the particles augment turbulence, while for an intermediate range of Pa turbulence is attenuated.
One scientist said that each particle is like a little oven concentrating the sun's heat on a single spot.
To assume that one fundamental particle is the same as any other is to assume that one American is the same as any other.
