Resonance

In particle physics, a resonance is a particle in an excited state, and is very unstable.

 


Explanation

The strong interaction works on hadrons, which disintegrate as a result. This is how a resonance emits pions, whereby it then turns into a more stable particle.

There are mesonic (ρ rho) and baryonic (Δ delta) resonances.

 


Additional information

The American physicist I.I. Rabi discovered the magnetic resonance of atomic nuclei in 1937.
