Neutron Mass

What are neutrons? It is a subatomic particle. Neutron is the composition of 1 up quark and 2 down quark and comes under the family of fermions. It is denoted by n or n0. The neutron mass is slightly higher than proton mass. The charge of neutron is null, which implies that neutron is electrically neutral. Neutron is located inside the nucleus.

Mass Of Neutron

Mass of neutron is cannot be directly calculated by mass spectroscopy. But it can be calculated by indirect methods.

Neutron mass mN 1.674927471(21) * 10-27kg

Nuetron Mass In Other Units

The mass of the neutron can be expressed using alternative units of measurements. Like – mass of neutron in grams, neutron mass amu, mass of neutron in MeV
