Hank Green - Strange Charm Chords

  C0                           C1         F2
0a quark is a fundamental constituent of matter
  G3                      F4            C5
1Observed in 1968 through deep elastic scatter.
   C6                            C7            F8
2We found that protons aren't as simple as we thought.
           G9                            F10         C11
3We thought they were solid particles but they are not.

   C12                           C13              F14
6Protons in fact are made up of three separate pieces.
   G15                               F16         C17
7It just gets more confusing as our knowledge increases.
    C18                               C19          F20
8But that is what a quark is; It's a piece of a proton,
         G21                         F22             C23
9And they also make up other things including the neutron.
10
11
    C24                       C25      F26
12Oh, up, down, strange, charm, top, bottom
       G27                                    F28                C29
13If you don't know what a quark is, it don't matter you still got 'em.
         C30                   C31                  F32
14And with leptons and bosons, unless something's amiss,
             G33                              F34            C35
15They make up everything that we can see and that we know exists.
16
17
C36                                  C37              F38
18Things made up of quarks including protons and neutrons
G39                            F40               C41
19Are composite particles that physicists call hadrons.
C42                             C43           F44
20Many types of hadrons are theoretically described,
    G45                        F46                C47
21But most exist for only very brief amounts of time.
22
23
C48                                  C49                F50
24Quarks have electric charge, color charge, mass and spin,
    G51                              F52            C53
25And having color charge means they exist solely inside of
C54                            C55            F56
26Other kinds of particles and cannot exist alone.
         G57                                 F58         C59
27Which is why quarks have never been studied on their own.
28
29
C60                       C61      F62
30Up, down, strange, charm, top, bottom
       G63                                    F64                C65
31If you don't know what a quark is, it don't matter you still got 'em.
         C66                   C67                  F68
32And with leptons and bosons, unless something's amiss,
             G69                              F70            C71
33They make up everything that we can see and that we know exists.
34
35
C72                              C73          F74
36Quarks can join together in two different ways,
G75                            F76         C77
37Baryons and Mesons, but most instantly decay.
     C78                                  C79       F80
38If a particle has three quarks, then it's a baryon,
           G81                                  F82          C83
39If there's one quark and and anti-quark, then it is a meson.
      C84                                 C85           F86
40These tiny bits of matter are a part of almost everything
          G87                       F88               C89
41And there is no unified theory to make it less confusing.
        C90                               C91             F92
42But the fact that we've identified that they exist at all
   G93                           F94             C95
43Is so god damn remarkable that I just sit in awe.
44
45
    C96                       C97      F98
46Oh, up, down, strange, charm, top, bottom
       G99                                    F100                C101
47If you don't know what a quark is, it don't matter you still got 'em.
         C102                   C103                  F104
48And with leptons and bosons, unless something's amiss,
             G105                              F106            C107
49They make up everything that we can see and that we know exists.
