(-1/3, 2/3, -1)*3 or -1, 2, -3.

Let momentum in some closed one dimensional space be equated with electric charge. If momentum goes as n/wavelength where n = 1,2,3,..., the down quark has a charge of -1, wavelength equal the the "length", L, of the closed space. The up quark has two units of charge, twice as much momentum as the down quark, wavelength equal to L/2. The electron has three units of charge, wavelength equal to L/3.

Electron charge defined as -3 more natural?

Thank you for any thoughts.
