The up, charm, and top quarks each carry a charge equal to 123 that of the proton, whereas the down, strange, and bottom quarks each carry a charge equal to 213 the proton charge. The proton consists of two up quarks and one down quark (see Fig. 2), giving the correct charge for the proton, 11. The neutron is composed of two down quarks and one up quark and has a net charge of zero. 3 | Dimensional Analysis The up and down quarks are sufficient to describe all normal matter, so the existence of the other four quarks, indirectly observed in high-energy experiments, is something of a mystery.

The rest have no value because they imply greater accuracy than was actually achieved in the original measurements. In experimental work, determining how many numbers to retain requires the application of statistics and the mathematical propagation of uncertainties. In a textbook it isn’t practical to apply those sophisticated tools in the numerous calculations, so instead a simple method, called significant figures, is used to indicate the approximate number of digits that should be retained at the end of a calculation.
