What is another word for subatomic?

Pronunciation: [sˌʌbɐtˈɒmɪk] (IPA)

The term "subatomic" refers to particles that are smaller than atoms and cannot be seen with the naked eye. Some synonyms for "subatomic" include "elementary," "particle-level," "microscopic," "nanoscopic," and "quantum-level." These words all reflect the tiny, minuscule nature of particles that make up atoms and their various subatomic components. Each term also emphasizes the highly specialized, advanced nature of the scientific study of these subatomic particles, which may have fundamental implications for our understanding of the natural world. In the realm of physics and chemistry, scientists are constantly discovering new subatomic particles with different properties and behaviors, which adds to the importance of having precise synonyms for this field.

What are the hypernyms for Subatomic?

A hypernym is a word with a broad meaning that encompasses more specific words called hyponyms.

What are the opposite words for subatomic?

Subatomic refers to particles or phenomena that are smaller than atoms, such as protons, neutrons, electrons, and photons. The antonyms for subatomic are macroscopic, visible, or substantial. Macroscopic describes objects or phenomena that can be seen with the naked eye, such as rocks, trees, and buildings. Visible refers to things that can be seen or observed, or the ability to perceive. Substantial, on the other hand, means having a significant size, mass, or importance. These antonyms are used to describe things that are larger than subatomic particles and can be observed without the aid of a microscope or other instruments.

Usage examples for Subatomic

Things are always at a certain place in three dimensions, but when you describe the location of a subatomic particle, for example, you also have to say when it was there.
Thomas Hoover
At some time during its first years, Mercury had been so close to the sun that its temperature was driven high enough to permit a subatomic thermonuclear reaction.
"Rip Foster in Ride the Gray Planet"
Harold Leland Goodwin
If it didn't, asteroid and Planeteers would end up as subatomic particles in the sun's photosphere, because he had calculated his blast to drive the asteroid past the limit of safety.

Famous quotes with Subatomic

  • A careful analysis of the process of observation in atomic physics has shown that the subatomic particles have no meaning as isolated entities, but can only be understood as interconnections between the preparation of an experiment and the subsequent measurement.
    Erwin Schrodinger
  • Quantum fiction is any story that witnesses life and the human experience on a subatomic level.
    Vanna Bonta
  • Schrodinger's Cat is a classic example of Paradox, in my view. In actuality, it was a Gedankenexperiment or a Thought Experiment, created by Austrian Physicist Erwin Schrodinger in 1935. Not many folks are probably aware that Schrodinger himself called that experiment “a ridiculous case.” Here’s the "Schrodinger's Cat" in Schrodinger's own words: “A cat is penned up in a steel chamber, along with the following device (which must be secured against direct interference by the cat): In a Geiger Counter, there is a tiny bit of radioactive substance, so small, that perhaps in the course of the hour one of the atoms decays, but also, with equal probability, perhaps none. If it (i.e. decay) happens, the Geiger Counter discharges and through a relay releases a hammer that shatters a small flask of Hydrogen Cyanide. If one has left this entire system to itself for an hour, one would say that the cat still lives if meanwhile no atom has (undergone) radioactive decay.” So you see, the cat's life or death truly depends on the formation of a subatomic alpha particle that triggers off the avalanche of electrons in the Geiger Counter. There is an equal probability that it may not happen, and hence the cat should remain both alive and dead per Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics. Philosophically speaking, Human Life is full of paradoxes, and we often find that the uncertainties therein bear a startling resemblance with Schrodinger's Cat experiment. The total randomness of events that shape our human lives, and determinedly control the outcome (i.e. future) can be extremely perplexing and equally thought-provoking as Schrodinger's Cat experiment....a pre-written and pre-destined Reductio ad absurdum perhaps!
    Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate
  • Modern physics has thus revealed that every subatomic particle not only performs an energy dance, but also is an energy dance; a pulsating process of creation and destruction. The dance of Shiva is the dancing universe, the ceaseless flow of energy going through an infinite variety of patterns that melt into one another’’.For the modern physicists, then Shiva’s dance is the dance of subatomic matter. As in Hindu mythology, it is a continual dance of creation and destruction involving the whole cosmos; the basis of all existence and of all natural phenomenon. Hundreds of years ago, Indian artists created visual images of dancing Shivas in a beautiful series of bronzes. In our times, physicists have used the most advanced technology to portray the patterns of the cosmic dance.
    Fritjof Capra
  • At the subatomic level, matter does not exist with certainty at definite places, but rather shows "tendencies to exist," and atomic events do not occur with certainty at definite times and in definite ways, but rather show "tendencies to occur."
    Fritjof Capra
