Think of the new world if...

Just think...:: ...you all know the nucleus of an atom is constituted of proton and neutron and some another subatomic particles and the electrons are revolving around it in a specified arranged manner i.e. in a orbital....but now think if the charge of the proton and the electron is altered in this case ,think the proton has got negative charge and the electron has got positive charge and the rest is remained as before even their mass is remained as before……then what would be the new world consisting everything that has a negative nucleus and a positive counterpart is rotating around it…..would the mechanism of each and every reaction would be altered….would the nuclear fusion and fission be impossible….would our life be something new…..would this universe be get destroyed…..would the present life be something different……………….just think logically and share your views…….thanks in advance for all of you joining this…..happy thinking....enjoy it....:)

Everything would remain as it is, because we have assumed protons to be positive 'Without Loss Of Generality". If we would have assumed it negative, it doesn't make a difference. A proton would then be negative, with a mass of 1837 times more than the mass of a an electron, which in turn would be positively charged.

yup, you are right , a charge being positive or negative is just assumption it will not make any difference if we are to change its name..

I think Raja doesn't mean only change the name or only change the word to symbolize everything, but he means the inverse of everything.

Only my thinking, everything has inverse matter and inverse state. So the universe will be absolutely different, the condition maybe was like first time you see celestial alien, how scary is that.

nothing would have been changed just it's gone vice versa
