20. 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 45-3. In terms of charge q as we have used it in previous chapters, the formula is T z = q e 1 2 ( B + S ). 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. 45-4(a). Rather than use a sloping axis

Unformatted text preview: as in Fig. 45-4 (there it is done for the q values), one reproduces (if one uses the corrected formula for T z mentioned above) exactly the same pattern using regular rectangular axes ( T z values along the horizontal axis and Y values along the vertical) with the neutral lambda and sigma particles situated at the origin....
