A Demonstration of How Small Quarks Are


This demonstration shows us that how small quarks are (with the assumption that quarks have size). If one magnifies a 10-micrometer silt particle to the size of the Sun (about 1.39 million kilometers in diameter), quarks of atomic nuclei of atoms of the original silt particle will be magnified by a factor of about 1014 or 100,000,000,000,000 and still will be smaller than the original 10-micrometer silt particle which shows that quarks are smaller than 10-19 m (In fact, experiments have shown that quarks are smaller than 10-19 m).
