# Neutron Mass

A neutron is a subatomic particle. It has the composition of 1 up quark and 2 down quark and comes under the family of fermions. It is denoted by n or nº. The neutron mass is slightly higher than the proton mass. The charge of the neutron is null, which implies that the neutron is electrically neutral. The neutrons are located inside the nucleus.

## Mass Of Neutron

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

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

### Neutron Mass In Other Units

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

 Neutron mass Value Mass of neutron in kg 1.674927471(21)×10−27 kg Mass of neutron in grams 1.674927471(21)×10−24 kg Mass of neutron in AMU 1.00866491588(49) u Mass of neutron in MeV 939.5654133(58) MeV/c2
