How do the different subatomic particles differ?
Mass, dimensions, spin, electrical charge, life time are different.
Subatomic particles are particles that are smaller than atoms. There are two different types of subatomic particles: elementary particles and composite particles. The first subatomic particle that was discovered was the electron. It was first theorized to exist by G. Johnstone Stoney in 1874 and was confirmed to exist in 1897 by J.J. Thomson.
