Abstract

The masses of pseudoscalar mesons are approximately proportional to quadratic powers of integers. The masses of pseudoscalar mesons can be approx imated by the formula mcal = c x n 2, where the con stant c is 122.6 MeV and n is an integer. The value of n is 1 for the two n-mesons, 2 for the three K-mesons and the ^-meson, 3 for the rj' (958)-me-son, 4 for the three D-mesons and the D s-meson, and 5 for the ?7c-meson. For n = 6 one should obtain the mass of the three B-mesons. However the calculated and experimental values do not agree very well. The constant c was adjusted to minimize S ! _ y (M ie x p -W ljc a lV 0c I V * I « P J
