Argue that the quark composition given in Table 11.5 for the positive kaon is consistent with the known charge, spin, and strangeness of this baryon.

Chapter 11, Problem 41P, Argue that the quark composition given in Table 11.5 for the positive kaon is consistent with the

To determine

The positive kaon is consistent with the known charge, spin, and strangeness of baryon.

Explanation

Introduction:

Quarks are elementary particles, which makes up another particle. There are six different quark namely, up quark, down quark, strange quark, charmed quark, bottom quark and top quark.

The quarks present in a positive kaon K+ are an up quark and a strange anti-quark. The charge of an up quark is +23e and that of a strange anti-quark is +13e. So, the net charge of K+ will be +1e, which agrees with its own value
