    Indeed, quarks are subatomic particles. They are considered elemantary particles. Protons and neutrons are made up of three quarks each. There are six kinds of quarks knows as up, down, top, bottom, strange and charm. Protons have two "up" and one "down" quarks, whereas neutrons have two "down" and one "up".

    Print out this free poster from CPEP on A3. Laminate it and enjoy. This poster has taught me more than reading a thousand words. If like me you are a complete but very interested novice, you will find it extremely informative. To give this out free speaks volumes about this organisation.
