Quark model

All matter around us is made of elementary particles, positrons and electrons, the constituent parts in the proposed quark model, the building blocks of matter.

Up quarks contain of one electron in the center and 610 positrons spinning around
the electron with the total charge of 2/3e (most of the electrical charge in the positrons
is transferred into kinetic energy, that shows matter (as mass) and energy can be
converted into each other) and down quarks which contain of one up quark, the blue area,
with two electrons and one positron, added as a shell around it, with the charge of
2/3e – 2e + 1e = – 1/3e


  Up quark                                                                  Down quark

Two up and one down quark form a proton and one up and two down quarks form a neutron. The sum of the masses of the quarks in the protons and neutrons are the same as the total mass of the protons and the neutrons, measured in electron mass (me)

The mass of the protons is 1836 me and of the neutrons is 1839 me.

The quark model for antimatter is identical to the quark model for matter, if positrons and electrons swap places.

Beta Decay and proton-proton collision is good examples to support the quark model of matter.

Bolides Meteors is a good example to support the quark model of antimatter.
