Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am just learning some materials and struggling to find what the other octet is. I know the following:

[itex]3 \otimes 3 \otimes 3 = 10 \oplus 8 \oplus 8 \oplus 1 [/itex]

Now I understand the 10 and one of the 8's. But I am a little unsure of what the other octet and singlet is in terms of quarks. Is the other octet just an excited state of the other octet (higher spin)??

(This is the octet I already know)

Thanks.
