Textbook Problem

There are particles called D−mesons. One of them is the D+ meson, which has a single positive charge and a baryon number of zero, also the value of its strangeness, topness, and bottomness. It has a charm of +1. What is its quark configuration?

To determine

The quark configuration of D+ meson with single positive charge, +1 charmness number and zero

baryon number, strangeness, bottomness and topness.

Explanation

Given info:

The particle D+ meson has single positive charge, +1 charmness number and zero

baryon number, strangeness, bottomness and topness.

Calculation:

Since the particle D+ meson has single positive charge, +1 charmness number and zero

baryon number, strangeness, bottomness and topness the possible combination is cd¯.

Let's check the quantum numbers from quark configuration.

Charge of D+ meson =23e+13e=+e

Baryon number =131
