Explains beta decay. TODO why/how.

Beta decay could not be explained by the strong nuclear force, the force that’s responsible for holding the atomic nucleus together, because this force doesn’t affect electrons. It couldn’t be explained by the electromagnetic force, because this does not affect neutrons, and the force of gravity is far too weak to be responsible. Since this new atomic force was not as strong as the strong nuclear force, it was dubbed the weak nuclear force.
