The Number 3 in Physics
It seems that Physics likes the number 3 at all levels, from the macroscopic down to the quantum level. Consider this..
- There are 3 macroscopic spacial dimensions.
- The Standard Model of elementary particles has 3 families of fermions.
- The Color Force has 3 charges, RGB.
- And we now have the recently discovered "Efimov States" which are bound groups of 3 bosons.
Coincidence? Maybe. Maybe not.
