One decay mode for the eta−zero meson is (a) Write the decay in terms at the quark constituents.(b) How much energy is released?(c) What is the ultimate release of energy, given the decay mode for the pi zero is To determine

The decay mode η0π0+π0 in terms of quark structure.

Explanation

Given:

Given reaction is, η0π0+π0

Calculation:

Quark structure of η0=uu¯+dd¯

Quark structure of π0=uu¯+dd¯

Therefore, the equation in terms of quarks is given by,

η0π0+π0

uu¯+dd¯

To determine

(b)

The energy released in the decay of η0 particle given by η0π0+π0

To determine

(c)

The ultimate release of energy if the decay product π0 of the reaction η0π0+π0 is again

decayed by π0γ+γ
