13. To examine the conservation laws associated with the proposed decay process nK p π −− Ξ→ + + + , we make use of particle properties found in Tables 44-3 and 44-4. (a) With ( ) 1 q Ξ= , ( ) 1, (n) 0, (K ) 1 qq q = −= = and (p) 1, q =+ we have 11 0 ( 1 ) 1 −=−+ +− + . Thus, the process conserves charge. (b) Since ( ) 1 B + , ( ) 0, B = (n) 1, (K ) 0 BB = += and (p) B we have 101012 +≠ ++ += . Thus, the process does not conserve baryon number. (c) , Ξ
