|The primary purpose of this paper is to demonstrate that a neutrino has a definite mass. Secondly, the purpose of this paper is to demonstrate through reaction equation the genesis of neutrino from nuclear reactions induced by electricity.|
The author used a method called logical mass analysis to determine theoretically the exact mass of a neutrino. The author determined the exact mass of three types of neutrinos: a. neutrino-p has a rest mass almost 1/2 of an electron mass or 0.2395 MeV, b. neutrino-d has a rest mass about 1/10 of an electron mass or 0.059 MeV, c. neutrino-t has a rest mass about 9/10 of an electron mass or 0.444 MeV.
The author formally defines neutrino as a leptonic particle having a mass ranging from 1/10 of an electron mass to 9/10 of an electron mass.
The importance of this paper lies in the fact that the exact mass of neutrino has eluded scientists for 60 years since 1930 when the neutrino was postulated as a massless particle. Secondly, this paper is important because this paper serves as a basis for experimental scientists to identify different types of neutrinos and their respective definite masses during experimentations.
