Meet The Swirlon – A New State of Active Matter Discovered By Physicists

Swirlons and External Forces

25. Swirlons and External Forces

As we now know, external forces don’t play a large role in changing these new particles. Because swirlons orbit around a common and fixed center moving in all different directions, no external forces can affect them. But, there is a catch.

Even though they don’t accelerate, their velocities will sometimes increase with external forces. The mobility and movement of each swirlon will solely depend on its mass and the number of particles that are making up the swirlon.

In this case, the larger the swirlon, the smaller the mobility. The orbiting velocity may differ from the self velocity, making it difficult to find the values of its overall velocity.
