Readers Respond to the July 2020 Issue
In the “Neutrino Flavors” box, an illustration of the three mass states of the normal hierarchy produces the expected result. Meanwhile the illustration of the inverted hierarchy seems to propose that the electron neutrino's predominant mass state (mass 1) is not the smallest state but the intermediate one. Yet to maintain the expected rank order of the masses in the inverted hierarchy, the “extremely small mass” must be the electron neutrino's second most prominent mass state (mass 2). In reply to Van: The figures of the three mass states are correct. The particle's most dominant mass state is mass 1, followed by mass 2 and then mass 3.
