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 443. In terms of charge
q
as we have used it in
previous chapters, the formula is
