  • PARTICLE PHYSICS
    • Hadrons
      • Baryons
        • Made up of 3 quarks
        • Only stable baryon is a proton
          • All others decay into protons
        • Have a baryon number of +1
        • Proton, neutron
      • Mesons
        • Made up of 2 quarks
          • Quark and an antiquark
        • All unstable
      • Non-fundamental particles made up of QUARKS
        • Quarks are fundamental particles - 'building blocks'
      • Classified by strangeness number.
    • Leptons
      • Fundamental particles
      • Have a lepton number of +1
      • Electron, tau, muon
