    • Abstract

       

      For a large class of phenomenological potential models motivated by quantum chromodynamics, we have studied the behaviour of bound state masses as the constituent mass is increased and found that the mass of a quark-antiquark bound state increases when a constituent mass is increased. It appears, for these potentials, thatd quark is heavier thanu quark.
