Textbook Problem

How can the lifetime of a particle indicate that its decay is caused by the strong nuclear force? How can a change in strangeness imply which force is responsible for a reaction? What does a change in quark ?avor imply about the force that is responsible?

To determine

The explanation for the lifetime of a particle indicates that its decay is caused by the strong nuclear force and the force that is responsible for a reaction implied by the change in strangeness. The change that is implied by quark flavor about the force that is responsible.

Explanation

A particle possessing lifetime in the range of1016sto1023sindicates that its decay is caused by strong nuclear force, whereas a particle possessing lifetime in the range of1013sto896sindicates that its decay is caused by weak nuclear force. Thereby, one can determine the lifetime of a particle, caused by whether strong or weak nuclear force.

The change in strangeness is caused by the change in the flavor/type of the strange quark to the down or up quark(su,orsd).

The weak nuclear force keeps the ability to change the quark flavor
