Short Answer

Using the up, down and strange quarks only, construct, if possible, a baryon (a) withq=+1 and strangeness S=2and (b) withq=+2 and strangeness, S=0.

(a) There is no possible baryon.

(b) The baryon is . uuu

Step by Step Solution

Step 1: (a) A baryon with q=+1and strangeness,S=−2 .

There is no possible baryon by the use of up , down and strange quarks withq=+1 and strangenessS=2 .

Hence, there is no possible baryon.

Step 2: (b) A baryon withq=+2  and strangeness, S=0.

The possible baryon of three up quarks is the only which is with q=+2and strangeness, S=0.

Hence, the possible baryon is .uuu
