Lancaster Particle Physics Package (LPPP)

The Lancaster Particle Physics Package (LPPP) aims to give students a feel for the basic physics and experimental techniques involved in Particle Physics research.

LPPP is designed for students aged 16 to 18 who are taking Physics courses. It covers topics from the common core or optional topics in the English GCE AS/A2 system.master-class-particle-physics

Animations in the LPPP simulate the real physics underlying the events being modelled. There is a gradual introduction to relativistic formulae and corresponding units for energy and mass.

By following the suggested experiments, calculations and short projects, you will learn how to find the mass and identity of particles that you have created, measure the mass and the lifetime of the neutral kaon, and maybe even discover the Higgs boson!
