What are Virtual Particles?

Although the above explanation may have sounded vague, the general idea behind Virtual Particles is that they are only able to exist for a few moments before ceasing to exist. In essence, they could also be described as a binding of Quarks through strong nuclear forces.

In addition to that, they are represented through diagrams known as Feynman Diagrams. These diagrams are structured in such a way that they can represent different types of particles. For example, this diagram can be used to describe "real" particles such as Photons in additon to Virtual Particles.
