Question 5: [2][67] Hence, it is defined or assumed to be a point particle with a ________ and no spatial extent.
Point particleStandard ModelElectronPhoton

Question 6: What does the following picture show?

  An extended air shower generated by an energetic cosmic ray striking the Earth's atmosphere
  Pair production caused by the collision of a photon with an atomic nucleus
  In quantum mechanics, the behavior of an electron in an atom is described by an orbital, which is a probability distribution rather than an orbit. In the figure, the shading indicates the relative probability to "find" the electron, having the energy corresponding to the given quantum numbers, at that point.

Question 7: [136] When these particles collide with nucleons in the ________'s atmosphere, a shower of particles is generated, including pions.

Question 8: What does the following picture show?

  A lightning discharge consists primarily of a flow of electrons.[111] The electric potential needed for lightning may be generated by a triboelectric effect.[112][113]
  An extended air shower generated by an energetic cosmic ray striking the Earth's atmosphere
  During a NASA wind tunnel test, a model of the Space Shuttle is targeted by a beam of electrons, simulating the effect of ionizing gases during re-entry.[154]
