Quark
fundamental particles of which electron,positron, neutrino and their associated anti-particles. Has 3 generationsa and only formed in hadrons
1 of 11
lepton
First gen leptons.electron +1, Neutrinos have +1,positron and anti-neutrino -1.
2 of 11
Proton
Baryon composed of uud . This gives charge of +1 and baryon no. +1
3 of 11
Neutron
Baryone composed of udd.This has a charge of 0 and baryon no. +1
4 of 11
Electron
Has little mass and carries negative charge of -1. has lepton no.+1.
5 of 11
positron
same as electron but has charge of +1 and has lepton no. -1.
6 of 11
Hadron
Contains 3 quarks and contains either a mix of quarks and anti-quark.Have strong force.
7 of 11
Baryon
Name given to particles which consist of 3 quarks. An anti-baryon contains 3 anti-quarks
8 of 11
Meson
This particle contain 2 quarks one quark, one anti-quark.
9 of 11
pion
Mesons are unstable, decaying into leptons and photons .
10 of 11
Neutrino
carries no charge and has lepton no. +1 and anti = -1
