When Energy Conservation Seems to Fail: The Prediction of the Neutrino
Guerra, Francesco; Leone, Matteo; Robotti, Nadia
Science & Education, v23 n6 p1339-1359 Jun 2014
A historical case study concerning the serious doubts that arose in early 1930s about the validity of the law of energy conservation in nuclear disintegrations, and the hypothesis of neutrino, will be closely analyzed with the goal of promoting understanding of the nature of science. This work is based upon primary archival and printed sources, with a particular focus on the proceedings of the first International Conference of Nuclear Physics which was held in Rome on October 1931.
