Dimensions of matter

Postby Mekonta » Sun Jun 07, 2020 3:33 am

Our students watched a TV programme about the LHC at CERN.
They asked this question :- a proton is considered as 3 dimensions at rest. As it accelerates to 99% the speed of light it becomes 2 dimensional . So? On collision it turns into energy, So the question is? Is energy considered as 1 dimension or no dimension ?
