Textbook Problem

Discuss how we know that (−mesons are not fundamental particles and are not the basic earners of the strong force.

To determine

The process which indicates thatπ-mesons( π+, π, π0 )are not fundamental particles as well as not the basic carriers of the strong force.

Explanation

These particles lack the quark and antiquark of strangeness and also are not fundamental particle as they are usually produced as a byproduct in various decays.

Mesons includingπ-mesons( π+, π, π0 )are made of quark and an anti-quark pair and interact through the strong nuclear force. But these are unstable as they contain a particle and an antiparticle to produce particles such as neutrinos, photons and electrons. Thus these are also not the actual carrier of strong force
