Question
(a) Is the decay $\Lambda^0 \rightarrow n + \pi^0$ possible considering the appropriate conservation laws? State why or why not. (b) Write the decay in terms of the quark constituents of the particles.
1. Yes, this decay is possible. Strangeness is not conserved, which means it must be mediated by the weak nuclear force.
2. Please see the solution video.
