1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data (a) What are the branching ratios for EM decay only? (b) What does this reveal about the strength of strong interaction? (c)What are the relative rates of decay? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution Part (a) For EM-only decay, the branching ratio would be 50% and 50%. Part (b) Strong interaction is more likely to occur, since only 12% of total reaction can be attributed to EM interaction. Part (c) Not too sure how to approach this part..
