What are the most likely modes of decay for ##\Omega ^{}## into 2 hadrons?
##BR_{k}=\frac{\Gamma _{k}}{\Gamma}##
##\Gamma=\frac{\hbar}{\tau }##
##\Gamma _{k}=\Gamma _{if}=2\pi \rho<\Psi _{i}H_{Int}\Psi _{f}>^{2} (E_{f})##
I took a look at the Particle Data Group, and the most likely modes are ##\Omega ^{}\rightarrow \Lambda K^{}## (68%) and ##\Omega ^{}\rightarrow\Xi ^{0}\pi ^{}## (24%). I have some difficulties to understand which particle i should use to calculate the branching ratios. The exercise only says that it can decay in 2 hadrons, but it doesn't say which. How can i know this without looking at books as i did?
