A Σ0 particle travelling through matter strikes a proton. A Σ+, a gamma ray, as well as a third particle, emerge. Use the quark model of each to determine the identity of the third particle.

To determine
The unknown particle in the reaction.

Explanation of Solution

The reaction is,

Σ0+pΣ++γ+X

  • X is the unknown particle

The quark composition of Σ0 is uds , quark composition of p is uud , quark composition of Σ+ is uus and quark composition of γ is 0 .

The reaction in quarks level is,

uds+uuduus+0+x

  • x
