Flashcards in Quarks Deck (13):
What are quarks?
The building blocks for Hadrons.
what are anti-particles of Hadrons made from?
What are Mesons?
What are baryons and anti-baryons in terms of quarks?
Baryons and anti-baryons are Hadrons that consist of three quarks for a baryon or three anti-quarks for an anti-baryon.
What quarks are involved in strange particles?
Strange Quarks, S
What does it mean for strangeness to be a quantum number?
It can only take a certain set of values, it therefore has to be conserved.
What interaction is strangeness conserved in?
What interaction breaks down strangeness?
How is strangeness conserved?
• Strange particles are always produced in pairs.
• One particle has a strangeness of +1
• Other particle has a strangeness of -1
How many quarks are mesons made from?
How many quarks are baryons made from?
What is the anti particle of a pion?
Uncharged pion's antiparticle is itself.
