Taking a closer look at LHC
As it's been already said, the aim of this website is just to introduce the LHC experiment and some simple physical calculi about some phenomena which took place in any particle accelerators. They can be used in the secondary school classroom in order to stimulate the curiosity of students, to help them to understand those physical concepts, and as an example of the relationship between the cold equations of Physics on the blackboard and the exciting work in scientific research.
The calculations that you will be finding in this Web are adapted to the Physics of Secondary School and in most of the cases are only very simple approaches to the correct results.
If you find any mistake, please don't hesitate to let me know and I'll try to correct as rapidly as possible.
If you wish for more specific information you must go to websites linked to CERN and its experiments, where you will obtain more complex and specific descriptions and data.
This Website has received the permissión of CERN to use informations, data, texts and images from CERN websites. The rest of images, graphs, etc., not belonging to us, have been taken as "fair use" qualification, but, please, let us know if that is not the case.
