Not to be confused with brotons, that pressure you for sex, or croutons, that pressure you to eat that cobb salad.

Are you positive?

So that was my mistake - I hired amateurtons.

I've been there several times with no ill effects.

Beat you with how much pressure?

Just don't let it happen again.

Where's ICE IV?

Ice-T ?

So, somewhere between "neutron star" pressure and "threshold for creating a black hole" pressure?


Pressure equals potential energy. Energy = mass x C2. The rest mass of a proton is well established.

I'm obviously missing something here. A lot of knowledge, to be sure.

If the pressure wasn't super-duper high, wouldn't that mean that a proton could decay? And wouldn't that be sad?
 
2018-05-17 03:26:49 PM  
Hmm. So they're saying the strong force is strong? Who woulda thunk?

That bit is excellent but the rest the episode is just kinda set up for it, so overall it's not really one of their best.

Riche: So, somewhere between "neutron star" pressure and "threshold for creating a black hole" pressure?


It's important to note that we have no idea what the final state of the center of a black hole is; but theory suggests that a single proton can never create a black hole because the localized compressive pull of the gravitational force will always be weaker than the local repulsive force of the electromagnetic force. This doesn't take the strong force into account at all, but basic electromagnetic interactions will likely dominate until sufficient neutral mass is added to the system. See the Reissner-Norstrom metric.

So if you drop your keys in a proton, forget 'em...

With that much pressure if we can make it go all explody then we can quit worrying about our A bombs and H bombs.

/ it won't go all explodey
// physically impossible
/// so I've been told by the interwebs

The proton has additional Mass beyond that contributed by its pressure energy.

A proton's mass includes the mass of its sub particles and the mass of its energy, and the mass of the energy of the bonding Force connecting those sub particles together. The pressure of the proton is only a tiny fraction of its total mass.
