Main Question or Discussion Point
I have been trying to understand some of the basic differences in the fundamental nature of leptons and quarks. One article on this issue compares leptons and quarks as "oranges vs apples" to which I basically agree except for one aspect. How can the charges of the quarks be 1/3 or 2/3 the "exact" value of the electron if the leptons and quarks are supposed to be so fundamentally different?? I don't think this is serendipity working.
