Baryons and Omega C-0 Particles

In March 2017, five new sub-atomic particles were discovered by Large Hadron Collider scientists at CERN. These particles have been collectively called Omega C0 and have been named Oc(3000)0, Oc(3050)0, Oc(3066)0, Oc(3090)0 b Oc(3119)0 as per their masses megaelectronvolts (MeV). Omega-c-zero is a baryon. It is a particle with three quarks, containing two strange and ..
