Why is it easier to see the properties of the c, b, and t quarks in mesons having composition W− or rather than in baryons having a mixture of quarks, such as udb?

To determine

The reason for that it is easier to see the properties of thec,b, andtquarks in mesons having compositionWortt¯rather than in baryons having a mixture of quarks, such asudb.

Explanation

Introduction:

Mesons are subatomic particles that are composed of one quark and one antiquark whereas baryons are subatomic particles composed of odd number of quarks.

The given quarks areu,d,c,b, andt. Theu,c,andtquarks have±23qecharge, whereas thedandbquarks have13qe,charge.

Mesons are composed of an antiquark and a quark, whereas baryons are composed of3quarks. Mesons (both quark and antiquark) involve single flavors, thus they are easy to study. Baryons involve different flavors, thus they are difficult to study
