Mass regularities forS- andP-wave mesons and relations between their masses are discussed. A detailed analysis is given forS-wave mesons which extends the investigations onP-wave mesons reported earlier. Masses for theS- andP-states of all interesting$$q\bar q$$-systems (including toponium states) are predicted. Partial understanding of the mass formulae is obtained within a general potential model approach. Scaling arguments are presented which support the empirical scaling behaviour found for the expectation values determining the spin-splittings in the potential picture.
