Bose einstein condensation and subatomic-speed

  1. Jan 31, 2005 #1
    If we cool down a small sample of atoms and see bose-einstein condensation,
    and so the speed of the atoms is slowed down dramatically,
    what can we say about the speed of the sub-atomic particles
    (quarks etc..), do we know how their speed is being changed?

    regards, marcel

    I guess that a large part of the atoms being in the ground state doesn't effect the velocity of the atoms constituents...?!
