What is bigger a proton or an electron?
a proton has a mass of 1
whereas an electron has a mass of 1/1800
If a free electron and free proton are released in identical electric fields what will the electric forces on each particle be and how their accelerations compare?
No, the proton and neutron don't have the same mass. A neutron is about 1.00138 times as heavy as a proton. The neutron is just a bit bigger, as you can see, and when a free neutron decays, it releases a proton and an electron. It might be said that a proton plus an electron equals a neutron, but you might not be able to get a physicist to say that. Links can be found…
No, it isn't. The mass of an electron is significantly smaller than that of a proton. The mass of 1,800 electrons is about the same as the mass of one single proton. The antiparticle of the electron, the positron, has the same mass as the electron. the mass of the electron is not the same to the mass of the proton
The main similarity between them is that they are subatomic particles found in all elements and they are particles of matter (versus antiprotons and positrons, which are their opposites and are particles of antimatter). They are quite different in most other ways; the proton is found in the nucleus while the electron orbits about the atom some relative distance away from the nucleus, and the proton is much bigger and heavier than the electron.
If a proton had a mass of 1 what is the mass of an electron and neutron relative to the mass of the proton?
Protons are in the nucleus of an atom while electrons are in the electron cloud. Electrons can also travel to other atoms and are very fast moving. Protons are very large whereas electrons are 2,000 times smaller than protons. Proton mass is about 1836 times electron mass. Proton charge is positive, electron charge is negative. Proton is hadron, electron is lepton. Proton contains 3 quarks (UUD), electron contains no quarks. Proton responds to strong force…
