Textbook Problem

There are particles called bottom mesons or B−mesons. One of item is the B− meson, which has a single negative charge; its baryon number is zero, as are its strangeness, charm, and topness. It has a bottomness of −l. What is its quark configuration?

To determine

The quark configuration of B meson with single negative charge, 1 bottomness and zero

baryon number, strangeness, charmness and topness.

Explanation

Given info:

The particle B meson has single negative charge, 1 bottomness and zero baryon number, strangeness,

charmness and topness.

Calculation:

Since the particle B meson has single negative charge, 1 bottomness and zero baryon number, strangeness,

charmness and topness the possible combination is bu¯.

Let's check the quantum numbers from quark configuration.

Charge of B meson =13e23e=e

Baryon number =13
