Weak interaction

The weak interaction binds the elementary particles in the atomic nucleus to each other.

 


Explanation

This interaction is transmitted by the W+ boson, the W boson and the Z0 boson.

It is, through radioactive decay in the earth's interior, largely responsible for the heathing of the magma. And that sometimes causes volcanic eruptions. The weak interaction is one of the 4 fundamental forces of nature.

 


Additional information

The Italian physicist Enrico Fermi postulated the weak interaction in 1933.
