Quantum numbers related to every flavour of quark

  1. Mar 23, 2012 #1
    Hi. I am a bit confused by the fact that there are quantum numbers related to every flavour of quark except the up and down. A consequence of this is that the neutral pion is it's own anti-particle while the neutral kaon is not. Why is this so?
