what is god particles . Please give in detail.


Higgs Boson is termed as a god particle. It belongs to a category of subatomic particles known as Bosons which have a characterized as particles having integer spins. A Higgs Boson a special type of subatomic particle predicted by the Standard model of particle physics which would be responsible for giving mass to matter.

A Higgs Boson is, strictly speaking, not a particle per say but a type of vibration or a field through which other particles move. The movement of particles through such a field and their subsequent interaction with it cause an affect in these particle which gives rise to mass. The amount of mass depends upon the strength of the interaction.

The "God particle" is the nickname of a subatomic particle called the Higgs boson. In layman’s terms, different subatomic particles are responsible for giving matter different properties. One of the most mysterious and important properties is mass. Some particles, like protons and neutrons, have mass. Others, like photons, do not. The Higgs boson, or “God particle,” is believed to be the particle which gives mass to matter. The “God particle” nickname grew out of the long, drawn-out struggles of physicists to find this elusive piece of the cosmic puzzle. What follows is a very brief, very simplified explanation of how the Higgs boson fits into modern physics, and how science is attempting to study it.
