19 IonisationWe can prove that radiation creates ions as we bring a source close to a charge electroscope

82 Ghost Particle Mystery By 1930 most of the particle physics world was understoodHowever the decay of the neutron to a proton producing a beta particle did not obey Einstein's Lawn0 → p+ + e-Pauli said there must be a new particle called a neutrino
83 Beta decayIn β− decay, the weak force converts a neutron into a proton while emitting an electron and an antineutrinon0 → p+ + e- + νeThis explains loss in energy and momentum. Pauli proposed it’s existence in 1930 but was not discovered until 1956 as it is so weakly interacting with other particles.
