Dandav Posted November 4, 2022 Report Share Posted November 4, 2022 (edited) Neutron star - Wikipedia “A neutron star is the collapsed core of a massive supergiant star, "Neutron stars have a radius on the order of 10 kilometers (6 mi) and a mass of about 1.4 solar masses.” Hence in a Neutron star all the protons & Neutrons that were collapsed into some sort one mega atom. As most of the matter in a star (as the sun) is all about protons (Hydrogen - 91% in the sun), we could assume that a Neutron star is actually a proton star. However, our scientists assume that when a star is collapsed into neutron star its protons are changed to Neutrons by the following process: Electron capture - Wikipedia Electron capture (K-electron capture, also K-capture, or L-electron capture, L-capture) is a process in which the proton-rich nucleus of an electrically neutral atom absorbs an inner atomic electron, usually from the K or L electron shells. This process thereby changes a nuclear proton to a neutron and simultaneously causes the emission of an electron neutrino. p+e → n +νe However, we all know that Proton and Neutron has a different Quarks. Proton: Quarks - Up/Up/Down https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proton#/media/File:Quark_structure_proton.svg Neutron: Quarks - Up/Down/Down https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neutron#/media/File:Quark_structure_neutron.svg Up Mass = 2.2 MeV/c^2 Down Mass = 4.7 MeV/c^2 Electron mass = 0.510 MeV/c^2 Hence, how electron with only 0.510 MeV/c^2 can increase the quark up mass (of a proton) by 2.5 MeV/c^2 (4.7 – 2.2) change its structure from up to down (to Neutron) while it is locked in the proton and even claim that there is a decay energy? “Since this single emitted neutrino carries the entire decay energy, it has this single characteristic energy.” Don’t you agree that it is a pure imagination to assume that it is possible to increase the total mass in this process? As the gravity is so strong why it can’t just force all the protons to stay next to each other and overcome the positive electric charge/force of the proton? Why is it so important for us to change a proton to Neutron while it is forced to collapse into Neutron star or BH? Why not - Proton star instead of Neutron star?
