neutrinos- i dont understand.Watch
i dont understand their function ughhhhh i just dont get it
please could someone explain it, or direct me to somewhere
ill watch it and let you know if i have any questions x
Neutrinos were predicted before they were detected, due to a tiny discrepancy observed in energies in particle decays. Their name derives from the fact that they have extremely small rest mass energy (for the purposes of A-level, their mass is 0) and that they don't have charge. They very rarely interact with matter, so detecting them is difficult but not impossible.
Neutrinos have different 'flavours', in A-level a general rule of thumb is that the flavour of the neutrino corresponds to whichever other lepton is involved in the interaction.
