## Main Question or Discussion Point

My question concerns the delta++ baryon.

I understand that the rest mass of quarks makes up a very small percentage of the total mass of a baryon, but I don't understand exactly what it is about delta ++ (uuu) which makes it have greater rest mass than a proton (uud).

If anyone can explain this I would be very grateful!

Thanks
