From the American Institute of Physics update. Very interesting.
Arn't baryons supposed to be made of 3 quarks?
Yes, Brad it can't be a Baryon if it's got 5 quarks, cos Baryon's are made out of three quarks. The name it's been given is a pentaquark.
I think I'll take the word of a person working on the experiment
I'm a bit new to this subject; so forgive my ignorance if I'm asking a stupid question..
Would a pentaquark, along with baryons and mesons, be classified in the hadron family?
Separate names with a comma.
