# Two common quarks are called up with a charge of 23 and down with a charge of -13 protons are made up of 3 quarks How many of each quark would make a proton?

The proton has two up (electrical charge +1/3) quarks and one down (electrical charge -1/3) quark.

# What is a proton quark made up of?

Quarks are the elementary particles and in proton and neutron, there are 2 up quark and one down quark in proton and two down quarks and one up quarks in neutron. where as ele

# What is a quark made up of?

It is not currently confirmed whether quarks are made up of any smaller particles, but a theoretically suggested particle is Rishon.

Proton.

# What quarks make up a neutron?

two down quarks and one up

# If protons are positive and are made of two up quarks and one down quark why do neutrons have no charge but are made of two down quarks and one up quark?

The reason that protons are positive and neutrons have no charge is owed to the fact that quarks, which make up these particles, do not have integral charge. The charge of an

# How many up quarks and how many down quarks does a neutron have?

A neutron has one up quark, and two down quarks.

# Is down quark heavier than up quark because neutron is heavier than proton?

The two are related, yes, but technically it would be more accurate to say it the other way around: "Neutrons are heavier than protons because down quarks are heavier than u

arbitrary naming

# Does electron has up or down quarks?

electron has no quarks. both electrons and quarks are fundamental particles and are composed only of themselves.

A neutron.

# When you add two down quarks and one up quark you get this?

You get a neutron! down+down+up = neutron up+up+down= proton

A proton

# Do neutrons have a dipole arising from its one positive and two negative quarks?

Neutrons have a magnetic dipole moment due to the motion of their internal charged structure (quarks). However, there is no evidence yet of an Electric dipole moment. The exis

# How many up quarks and down quarks do protons have?

A proton is made up of two up quarks and one down quark.
In Physics

# Which quarks make up protons and neutrons?

Proton: 2 up, 1 down. Neutron: 1 up, 2 down.

# Why do protons and electrons combine to form neutrons in a neutron star if protons are made of two up quarks and a down quark electrons aren't made of quarks and neutrons are made of two down quarks a?

Actually 'an' up quark.   The weak nuclear force permits an interaction between an up  quark and an electron that converts the up quark to a down quark  and the electron
