In the microscopic world of the quantum particle, there are certain rules that are wholly weird to us on the subject of the order of a macroscopic scale. If you take steps a particle’s slant and ask “where are you,” the more adroitly you learn the inflexible, you’ll fundamentally know its goings-on, or its innovation, less competently. Other properties, however, in imitation of electric engagement, remain perfectly adeptly-known at all time, regardless of what else you put-on. For purely stable particles, whether elementary or composite (including electrons and protons), accretion is one of those perfectly-known properties.
If you know the adding of one electron under one set of conditions, you know it for all electrons everywhere in the Universe. But this isn’t the stroke for all the particles we know of. The shorter-lived an unstable particle is, the more uncertain its growth is. This isn’t just a hypothesized effect, but rather one that’s been experimentally observed and verified for decades.
