Homework Help: Evidence for number of different colour charges

  1. May 26, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    what experimental evidence is there for the number of different colour charges?
    this was on one of our past papers but i dont really understand a few of the answers found online and hyperphysics.com seems to have some of the info missing from the page...

    all i know is that the number of colours is related to the ratio of the number of hadron events to the number of muon events, this somehow points to 6 quarks and 3 colours but i dont know why or how...

    thanks for any help

    Yes, I'd like to know the answer, too.

    Anyone? :smile:
