Think of the new world if...

Just think...:: 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....:)

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

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
