Hi, can a Baryon be made up of 3 quarks and anti quarks? or can they only be only made up of either 3 quarks or 3 antiquarks? Thanks for the help

Its only 3 quarks or 3 anti quarks because the total charge of a baryon has to equal 1. For example a proton has a charge of 1 and contains 3 quarks. Remember each quark has a mass of 1/3

This is what you need to remember:

1. Hadrons are made up of quarks (and anti-quarks). There are two types: mesons and baryons.
2. Mesons consist of one quark and one anti-quark.
3. Baryons consist of either three quarks or three anti-quarks.

Questions come up on this regularly, so you must memorise it.
