Textbook Problem

How can quarks, which are fermions, combine to form bosons? Why must an even number combine to form a boson? Give one example by stating the quark substructure of a boson.

To determine

The process to form bosons by combining quarks. Also explain the reason for combining an even number for boson formation and state one example relating to quark substructure of a boson.

Explanation

The fermions consist of either +0.5 and0.5spin and when these fundamental particles combine the total spin produced is either 1 or 0. The, two spin-1/2 fermions combine to form a total spin of 1 or 0. In either of the case the spin implies that the composite spin of the object can be a boson.

For example helium can be stated as a boson
