Textbook Problem

Which of the following decays cannot occur because die law of conservation of lepton number is violated?

(a) n p + e      (e) π e + v ¯ e

(b) μ + e + + v e     (f) μ e + v ¯ e + v μ

(c) π + e + + v e + v ¯ μ    (g) Λ 0 π + p

(d) p n + e + + v e      (h) K + μ + + v μ

To determine

(a)

Whether the decay can occur or not because of the violation of law of conservation of lepton number.

Explanation

The reaction of the decay is given by,

  np+e

Here, the electron-lepton number of the neutron in the left side is 0 and the net electron-lepton number at the right side of the product is 1

To determine

(b)

Whether the decay can occur or not because of the violation of law of conservation of lepton number.

To determine

(c)

Whether the decay can occur or not because of the violation of law of conservation of lepton number.

To determine

(d)

Whether the decay can occur or not because of the violation of law of conservation of lepton number.

To determine

(e)

Whether the decay can occur or not because of the violation of law of conservation of lepton number.

To determine

(f)

Whether the decay can occur or not because of the violation of law of conservation of lepton number.

To determine

(g)

Whether the decay can occur or not because of the violation of law of conservation of lepton number.

To determine

(h)

Whether the decay can occur or not because of the violation of law of conservation of lepton number.
