What happen with the Electrons produced in Stars due to the weak force decay? Do they combine with other atoms? Are they just pushed out of the Sun? Do they help with the electron degenerative pressure? OR they are used again to produce another neutron? Or Physicist are not sure yet?
Short Answer: Electrons are not bound in the plasma of the star, so they roam around freely after any decay process with two exceptions.
- If they are at the core.
- When a star is undergoing collapse.
At the core, fusion is taking place so any free electrons/protons will fuse together to create heavier elements thereby keeping the pressure of the fusion matched with the gravitational pull.
If the fusion pressure is not enough, the star undergoes a collapse. When a star is undergoing collapse, and if the gravitational attraction is great enough to pass the electron degeneracy pressure, the compressed electrons with protons will form neutrons. If the neutron degeneracy pressure is greater than the gravitational attraction, this is how you obtain a neutron star. If the gravitational attraction is greater still, the neutron degeneracy pressure fails and you obtain a black hole.
