(Particle Physics) The short-range interaction between hadrons responsible for the force that binds the nucleus of an atom together: it is the strongest of all known forces
Any of a class of subatomic particles that are both hadrons and fermions, are composed of three quarks, participate in strong interactions, and are generally more massive than mesons and leptons. The class of baryons is divided into the nucleons and hyperons.
Any of a class of six elementary fermions, two in each of the three generations of fundamental fermions (one negatively charged and one neutral), and including the electron, electron neutrino, muon, muon neutrino, tauon, and tauon neutrino, together with their associated antiparticles, the antileptons. Leptons participate in weak interactions, but not strong interactions, and have masses generally less than those of mesons and baryons.
