. The properties of the top quark have been confirmed with the 2007 discovery of mesons composed of a t quark and a Chapter 12, Problem 31P, . The properties of the top quark have been confirmed with the 2007 discovery of mesons composed of quark. What charge does such a particle carry? What is its spin? How many units of topness and bottomness does this particle have?

Expert Solution
To determine

The charge, spin, topness and bottomness of a meson composed of t quark and b¯ quark.

Explanation of Solution

Given info:

Charge on topness = t=+23

Charge on bottomness (antiparticle) = b¯=+13.

Calculation:

Total charge on the meson,

Charge = tb¯=(+23)+(+13)=+1
