Both Rho^0 and Pi^0 are bosons so require an overall symmetric wavefn. However, they are in different spin states: the Pi is in the anti-symmetric S=0 state and the Rho is in one of the symmetric S=1 states.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Which other part of the overall wavefn (color, flavor, spatial) differs between the two such that their wavefn's have the required symmetry? As far as I know they should be identical in all other respects!
