Weak Nuclear Force

  • #1
I'm looking for some sort of basic explanation on the characteristics of the weak nuclear force. All of the physics books I've checked up in have only minimal references to the weak force, and the only information I've been able to get on it is a) that it plays some role in radioactivity, and b) a couple of contradicting claims as to how far its influence extends. Does anyone know where I can find this information? I need to know what the force actually does, what sorts of particles it is capable of acting on, what its range is, and the magnitude of the force or an associated formula.
