quick question I haven't been able to find the answer to.
Can the colour charge of a quark or a gluon change?
Can I get a red quark and make it antired? Can I get a greed quark and make it blue?

I don't can it be done by me, I mean is it possible at all?

From my superficial google search I even found an animation...

That animation doesn't explain at all whats happening.
Here's the mathematical relations I found:

(r{\bar {b}}+b{\bar {r}})/{\sqrt {2}}}
(r{\bar {b}}+b{\bar {r}})/{\sqrt {2}}
-i(r{\bar {b}}-b{\bar {r}})/{\sqrt {2}}}
-i(r{\bar {b}}-b{\bar {r}})/{\sqrt {2}}
(r{\bar {g}}+g{\bar {r}})/{\sqrt {2}}}
(r{\bar {g}}+g{\bar {r}})/{\sqrt {2}}
-i(r{\bar {g}}-g{\bar {r}})/{\sqrt {2}}}
-i(r{\bar {g}}-g{\bar {r}})/{\sqrt {2}}
(b{\bar {g}}+g{\bar {b}})/{\sqrt {2}}}
(b{\bar {g}}+g{\bar {b}})/{\sqrt {2}}
-i(b{\bar {g}}-g{\bar {b}})/{\sqrt {2}}}
-i(b{\bar {g}}-g{\bar {b}})/{\sqrt {2}}
(r{\bar {r}}-b{\bar {b}})/{\sqrt {2}}}
(r{\bar {r}}-b{\bar {b}})/{\sqrt {2}}
(r{\bar {r}}+b{\bar {b}}-2g{\bar {g}})/{\sqrt {6}}.}
(r{\bar {r}}+b{\bar {b}}-2g{\bar {g}})/{\sqrt {6}}.

Basically two quarks can swap colours by transferring a gluon with colour charge equal to the emitter and anti-colour charge equal to the receiver. This ensures that the colour charge remains constant across the whole system.

Colour charges aren't just guaranteed to be conserved at external edges of a feynman diagram (the final particles). They are also guaranteed to be conserved at every vertex as well, via the lorentz invariance of the matrix elements.

Spin 1 massless particles conserve their associated charge at every vertex. Hence, the gluon's associated charge (it actually always carries 2, a colour and an anti colour). Hence why say a red particle couples to a gluon, which then carries off red and antiblue, and the original particle now has blue (carrying away or subtracting anti colour adds the colour, so removing antiblue gives it blue). Particles can only have colour, anti particles can only have anticolour (again, implied by the coupling of a spin 1 massless particle to matter is the idea of antimatter, having the same mass but exactly opposite charge).

Although a particle can never interact with a gluon and carry away the same colour, because then gluons (it would carry colour+anticolour then and that would be neutral) could satisfy colour confinement and we would see them outside of interactions which we don't.

I'd already figured it out but this is the clearest and most succinct way of explaining it I've seen, so you've actually just solved a secondary problem I had so thanks even more because it's been more stumping than the previous one

There is some more rules not outlined by this definition. From a quantum field theory stand point we must also think about colour confinement. In the sense that we know gluons don't travel far, they must not satisfy colour confinement because if they did there would be nothing stopping them from travelling as far as they want (virtual particles need not obey all laws of physics, in particular mass shell relations and colour confinement are some they don't)

Thus, no gluon can be in the red+antired state. There's only 8 linearly independent gluon states, but they were all made so there is no linear combination of them that could produce colour+anticolour so as to satisfy colour confinement. This is why, if a quark stays the same colour it can't have interacted strongly (since there is no colour+anticolour configuration it can't stay the same colour when coupling to a gluon)

Breaking News : UN health council has declared that the western wold should sped 1 billion dollars US to genitally mutilate every male in Africa by government force by 2028 and that this will stop and cure all HIV and AID's in Africa.

When asked why this didn't stop the spread of AID's in the US or Israel (which have been increasing for decades) where circumcision is very common. The feminist head of the UN world heath council wiped her sweaty brow and stuttered " Muh Judaism ! ".

then when confronted with the fact 10% of circumcised boys in Africa die from infections caused by the procedure due to unsanitary conditions. She responded " Muh necessary sacrifices for greater goy- I mean good"


This is madness imagine what will happen if millions of uneducated Africans think they have god dicks immune to AID's and HIV !?

that's because in this case it actually is Israeli Mohels who work for massive global conglomerates and Jewish american pharmaceutical companies as well as funding by the Clinton foundation, Melinda Gates foundation and several other feminist lobbing organisations.

I think they actually want HIV to spread across Africa , that why they are pushing this completely ineffective and ludicrous solution when all logic and reason tells us condoms and sex education are obviously the best methods .

I think that entire sentence is made of conspiracy theorist buzzwords... good job.

The latest shit I can find on this is from 2011... and if you read a single article then you'd know their reasoning; they're in the camp of people who believe circumcision prevents disease transmission. The fact that it's bullshit is irrelevant, it's not some conspiracy to... I'm not sure what exactly, kill all the africans?

They aren't going to kill anyone, because it's not mandatory, and no sane person cuts their dick up.

Open your mind

1.American and Jewish intrest have for the last 20 years been spreading misinformation across Africa about the "magical" benefits of circumcision

2. various American and Israeli companies and charities have been paying African government officials to push circumcision as a miracle cure .

3. now that enough Africans believe their lies they want to make it mandatory for all Africans.

4. Profit ?

My mind is open, I just don't accept things without evidence.

1a. By "jewish" you mean "there are people involved who are jews" right? Because jews aren't a hivemind.

1b. There's a lot of discussion about the benefits of circumcision; I think it really doesn't matter so long as you only perform the procedure on willing adults.

2. Citation needed.

3. No they don't.

I find it's better for people to google and such for the truth themselves as every-time I just give them some they double down on their stance .

"There's a lot of discussion about the benefits of circumcision" - mainly the fact the side who claims there are benifits can't actually prove any and have been constantly chanig claims about what it treats or cures for 77 year , untill the 1960's they claimed it would cure autism, club foot ,down syndrome,colic, cleft pallets , blindness , bladder infections , penis cancer , hiv, gonorrhea etc Year after year these claims have been proven false .

he United States, the United Nations, the World Health Organization, and many international charities and African governments have launched a massive campaign to circumcise 20 million adult men in 14 countries. More than $100 million has so far been invested in the effort.

That's because you have no evidence at all, and you know that the only people who will bother trying to fact check for you are the same sort of crazy as you.

I've never encountered any such claims (given that you just made them up on the spot), the main argument I hear is that it prevents transmission of STIs, which is what some studies have shown, however other studies have failed to find any such correlation. I can't think of a mechanical explanation for the former, therefore I tend to agree with the latter, though I don't consider the problem important.

Citation needed (as always), and of course how many men have actually been circumcised by this effort? None. There is an increasing rate of circumcision amongst africans but this is due to the rise in radical christianity in some areas imported from the americas, and not some conspiracy.

feel free to look it up if you don't believe me .

almost all professional people who are pro MGM are some combination of American, Israeli , Jewish, Mohel, doctor with a circumcision clinic (so his livelihood depend's on it being a good thing ) , pharaseutial rep for company that harvest foreskins to make skin products . All of these things create huge biases .

I know the drill, no matter what name I provide you'll say they're a jew, because everyone is a jew. In fact, I'm obviously a jew for questioning this.

Foreskins for skin products? In my many years of conspiritard-watching I haven't seen that one before. I presume this is something you came up with to answer the question "why on earth would anyone want to steal people's foreskins".

wouldnt climate change happen even without humans and that our activity will just have the climate changes different then if it was without us? didnt know how to word it

Yes, climate change is a natural process with Earth. This is caused for several reasons, but largely boils down to the Earth's irregular orbit, bringing us closer/farther from the sun slightly over a few thousand years. major natural phenomenon (enormous volcanos or sudden ice sheet collapses, which causes a temperature change over a few hundred years), and natural ecological cycles.

HOWEVER, human-caused climate change drops that into absolute overdrive, several orders of magnitude faster. So fast that we aren't even sure what the point of no return will look like. Further, the speed and vector for our influence aren't just influence temperature. The destruction of huge swathes of habitats, desertification, soil depletion, ocean acidification (which is dangerous for the ocean's ecosystem - the most important on the planet - and will eventually reach a point the ocean can no longer absorb CO2 and the temperature will spike), greenhouse gases (which do more than just trap heat, they cause chemical changes in the atmosphere and react with stuff like ozone and bacteria), etc.

Check out this comment for a scale of natural climate change is compared to how rapid the human caused climate change is: xkcd.com/1732/

Do you mean cook an egg? If so, yes, but it will have a very liquid consistancy (like honey, almost), although the proteins will be denaturated and it will be "cooked".
If you simply mean boiling the fluid in the egg, then yes. You just need low pressure and it will vaporise.
