K - shell capture

Quote Quote by Idoubt View Post
I thought the size on the nucleus was so small compared to an orbital that there is a node between the nucleus and the first shell electron?
There is no node for s shell orbitals. The weak force is responsible for the e+p-->n+neutrino interaction. The rate is proportional to |\ps|^2 at the origin, which is nonzero.
