16. The formula for T z as it is usually written to include strange baryons is T z = q – ( S + B )/2. Also, we interpret the symbol q in the T z formula in terms of elementary charge units; this is how q is listed in Table 44-3. In terms of charge q as we have used it in previous chapters, the formula is 1 () 2 z q TB S e =− + . For instance, T z =+ 1 2 for the proton (and the neutral Xi) and T z 1 2 for the neutron (and the negative Xi). The baryon number B is +1 for all the particles in Fig. 44-4(a). Rather
