14. To examine the conservation laws associated with the proposed reaction 0ppe+−+→Λ+Σ+, we make use of particle properties found in Tables 44-3 and 44-4. (a) With (p)1, (p)1,qq=+=−0()0,qΛ=() 1q+Σand ()1qe−, we have 1(1) 01(1)+− = ++−. Thus, the process conserves charge. (b) With 1, (p)BB0()1,BΛ=B+Σand ()0Be−=, we have )110+− ≠ ++. Thus, the process does not conserve baryon number. (c) With 0,eeLL==0() ()0+Λ= Σ=and () 1eLe−=, we have 00001+≠++, so the process does not conserve electron lepton number. (d) All the particles on either side of the reaction equation are fermions with
