WHAT DOES WEAK NUCLEAR INTERACTION MEAN IN ENGLISH?

weak nuclear interaction

Weak interaction

In particle physics, the weak interaction is the mechanism responsible for the weak force or weak nuclear force, one of the four fundamental interactions of nature, alongside the strong interaction, electromagnetism, and gravitation. The weak interaction is responsible for both the radioactive decay and nuclear fusion of subatomic particles. The theory of the weak interaction is sometimes called quantum flavordynamics, in analogy with the terms QCD and QED, but in practice the term is rarely used because the weak force is best understood in terms of electro-weak theory. In the Standard Model of particle physics, the weak interaction is caused by the emission or absorption of W and Z bosons. All known fermions interact through the weak interaction. Fermions are particles, one of whose properties, spin, is a half-integer. A fermion can be an elementary particle, such as the electron; or it can be a composite particle, such as the proton. The heavy mass of W± and Z bosons being far heavier than protons or neutrons creates the short-range of the weak force.
