Use "particles" in a sentence
"As, therefore, in the electrolytic action, _induction_ appeared to be the _first_ step, and _decomposition_ the _second_ (the power of separating these steps from each other by giving the solid or fluid condition to the electrolyte being in our hands); as the induction was the same in its nature as that through air, glass, wax, &c. produced by any of the ordinary means; and as the whole effect in the electrolyte appeared to be an action of the particles thrown into a peculiar or polarized state, I was led to suspect that common induction itself was in all cases an _action of contiguous particles_ [A], and that electrical action at a distance (i.e. ordinary inductive action) never occurred except through the influence of the intervening matter."
"It suggests that these hard things which we call particles are considered as ontologically real because, well we consciously determine them to be."
"The wave proprieties of the electron and other particles is a guess of genius, although this idea occurred to de Broglie under the influence of Einstein's notion of photons and the equations"
