Neutron

In 1932, Chadwick discovered the fundamental particle neutron. The neutron is a neutral particle found in the nucleus of an atom. The subatomic particle not present in a hydrogen atom is neutron. A hydrogen atom contains only one proton and one electron. A neutron is represented by the symbol n.

Characteristics of a Neutron
Mass of a neutron : The mass of neutron is equal to the mass of a proton. The relative mass of a neutron is 1 u. The absolute mass of a neutron is 1.6 × 10–27 kg.
Charge of an neutron : Neutron has no charge. It is electrically neutral.
