Question about reactions and the strong force

  • #1
I have a problem on my homework that lists several different reactions involving K mesons and asks which of them can happen via the strong interaction. I've listed a couple of them below, and I'm hoping that someone can tell me why these can or can't proceed via the strong interaction:

(K-) + proton -> (anti K0) + neutron

and

(K0) + neutron -> Delta + (neutral pion)

If I can get a little help on those I can figure out the rest of the problem on my own. Any takers? Your help is appreciated!
