Relationships between the Masses of Subatomic Particles


IN previous communications1,2, I have shown that all sub-nuclear particles are probably composed of x tamaids combined with y bachs quantum conditions controlled by a quantum number z. In the case of positively charged subatomic particles I developed a relationship as follows Particles external to the core = (x − 6) + y = (3 + 13z) (1)
