The properties of a muon most closely resembles that of an electron. In the usual $\beta$-decay, an electron is emitted along with either a neutrino or an antineutrino. In a wildcard $\beta$-decay, a muon is emitted instead of an electron.

 chemicalsoul2009-11-01 08:18:31 haha thats a really good use of the word Wildcard ! I like it.Reply to this comment justmax2009-10-19 19:32:29 Muons are leptons: A) electrons are leptons B) & C) graviton and photon are force mediating particles (bosons) D) Pions are quarks (a quark and an antiquark) E) Protons are a trio of quarks. A) fits best.Reply to this comment sonnb2007-05-20 02:08:40 A muon has charge -1 and spin 1/2. An electron has charge -1 and spin 1/2. A graviton has charge 0 and spin 2. A photon has charge 0 and spin 1. A pion has either charge +1 or 0 and spin 0. A proton has charge +1 and spin 1/2. With these criteria, the electron most closely resembles the properties of the electron. From Vol 2 of H/R/K. Reply to this comment comorado2006-10-23 12:39:26 I would say that muon is a partical from Lepton group so are electron, tauon, neutrino. So the answer must be (A).Reply to this comment
