Problem 20

The Λ0\Lambda^0 cannot decay by the following reactions. What conservation laws are violated in each of the reactions?

  1. Λ0\Lambda^0 \nrightarrow n + π\pi^-
  2. Λ0\Lambda^0 \nrightarrow p + K\textrm{K}^-
  3. Λ0π++π\Lambda^0 \nrightarrow \pi^+ + \pi^-
  1. charge and strangeness not conserved.
  2. strangeness and energy not conserved.
  3. strangeness, baryon number, and spin not conserved.
