Textbook Problem

The quark ?avor change it takes place in decay. Does this mean that the reverse quark ?avor change takes place in decay? Justify your response by writing the decay in terms of the quark constituents, noting that it looks as if a proton is converted into a neutron in decay.

To determine

Whether the reverse quark flavor change dtakes place inβ+decay or not.

Explanation

A proton is composed of one down quark and two up quarks. A positron that is β+ during its decay converts a up quark into a down quark, releasing positron and a neutrino. The equation is,

   d + β+ + ν
