Textbook Problem

The decay mode of the negative muon is

(a) Find the energy released in MeV.

(b) Verify that charge and lepton family numbers are conserved.

To determine


The energy released in the decay of μ particle given by μe+ν¯e+νμ



The decay mode of negative muon is given by, μe+ν¯e+νμ

Formula used:

Energy released = Rest energy of initial particle − sum of energies of decay products


In this problem the negative muon decays by μe+ν¯e+νμ

Rest energy of μ particle =105

To determine


The conservation of charge and lepton family numbers.
