## Why do protons and neutrons not move?

Protons and neutrons are made up of smaller subatomic particles. When protons or neutrons get close enough to each other, they exchange particles (mesons), binding them together. Although the strong force overcomes electrostatic repulsion, protons do repel each other.

## How do electrons differ from protons and neutrons?

Electrons are a type of subatomic particle with a negative charge. Protons are a type of subatomic particle with a positive charge. Protons are bound together in an atom’s nucleus as a result of the strong nuclear force. Neutrons are a type of subatomic particle with no charge (they are neutral).

## Do protons neutrons and electrons differ from each other based on their locations in an atom but they have the same electrical charges?

Of these three subatomic particle types, two (protons and electrons) carry a net electric charge, while neutrons are neutral and have no net charge. Both protons and electrons have charge that is quantized. That is, the magnitude of their respective charges, which are equal each other, is 1.

## Why is it that protons are not considered a source of moving charges for current flow?

Answer. Answer: because the flow of protons are not able to transfer the electric charge.

## What is it called when molecules completely stop moving?

Absolute zero is the temperature at which the particles of matter (molecules and atoms) are at their lowest energy points. Some people think that at absolute zero particles lose all energy and stop moving. The Celsius and Fahrenheit scales are defined so that absolute zero is −273.15 °C or −459.67 °F.

## Why do molecules never stop moving?

Answer 1: The quick answer to your question is no, molecules do not stop moving at absolute zero. They move much less than at higher temperatures, but they still have small vibrations at absolute zero. The vibrations of the atoms and bonds are restricted because of the way quantum mechanics relates to their symmetry.

## What is the fastest thing in space?

The Parker Solar Probe just earned the title of the fastest-moving manmade object. Launched by NASA this past August, this robotic spacecraft is currently very, very near the Sun, on its way to probe the outer corona of our local star.
