Q. 14.4

Would the discovery of proton decay be a violation of baryon conservation?

Verified Solution

There are no known baryons with lighter mass than the proton. Therefore, if proton decay occurred, it would be a violation of baryon conservation unless a new, lighter baryon was also discovered. The lifetime of the proton is believed to be greater than $10^{33}$ years, but searches for its decay continue.
