## Main Question or Discussion Point

I'm in trouble on answer to this question: "Wich is the (most probable) simmetry of the spatial part of the wavefunction for the lightest baryons? Why?"

I know that the spatial and spin parts of a baryon wavefunction must be simmetric under an interchange of any two quarks (this is an assumption on the quark static model, at least for the lightest baryons: the Pauli principle is not violated because there's the colour degree of freedom: to be "colourless" a baryon must be antysimmetric on the colour degree of freedom, so his "total" wavefunction results antysimmetric), and i also know that the spatial part in the lightest baryons has l=0, but i'm not able to motivate that answer exactly.

What i am forgetting?

Someone can help me?

Sorry for my english.
