#4. Did you know?

As alpha rays are thrown out from their source,
The parent atoms undergo a change;
These helium nuclei need little force
To stop them going past a certain range.
Another radioisotope decays,
And more unseen electronvolts are freed;
But these more penetrating beta rays
Are just electrons with a lot of speed.
Possessing no rest mass and zero charge,
The nuclear gamma photons stream about;
They have a penetrating strength so large
That nothing short of lead will cut them out.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

Re: Did you know?

Yes, I only posted that because that page is wrong. There are no English words that rhyme with orange. Sorry for the confusion.
