Suppose they are held 10 nm apart. What is the dominant interaction between them? The magnetic dipole interaction or something else?
Could you please tell me, where can I find a straightforward calculation with all details of beta-decay of neutron? To find the amplitude and to square it is difficult, but possible. The main problem ...
The reason "neutrons don't overlap", as DarenW explained it, has to do with intricate forces at play that take into account the spins, iso-spins and symmetry of the wavefunctions. However, assume I ...
I've read that free neutrons decay into a proton, electron and neutrino with an average lifespan of about 15 minutes. Is there anything physically different about a neutron that has existed for 14 ...
