Can someone explain in easy to understand terms, what parity violation is? specifically: "Only the left-handed components of particles and right-handed components of antiparticles participate in weak interactions in the standard model." Thanks in advance. BONUS: if you're like a particle physicist or something, could you also explain: "A spin-1 exchange particle can be described by a vector (V) or axial vector (A) operator. Both would conserve parity, but if the operator is mixed, parity can be violated. The observation of maximal parity violation and purely left-handed neutrinos requires equal contributions of vector and axial vector with opposite sign (V-minus-A theory)."
