What is a Particle Accelerator?

  1. Sep 5, 2011 #1
    I was wondering exactly what a particle accelerator does and also how to make them because I would like to make one for my science fair. But obviously to do this, I need an understanding of particle acceleration. So if you know anything on how to make them that would help! Thanks!
