Problem 6Q

Why is it that a neutron decays via the weak interaction even though the neutron and one of its decay products (proton) are strongly interacting?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step-by-step solution Step 1 of 2 Concept Neutron decay: It is the process in which neutron is emitted from the nucleus. Weak interaction: It is a fundamental interaction between elementary particles which is several orders of magnitude weaker than the conventional electromagnetic interaction. Strong interaction: It is one of the four basic forces which act between the particles of the nucleus.
