Proton Mass

In physics, Proton is a subatomic particle. Made up of current quarks. Denoted by p or p+. Proton location is inside the nucleus. The charge of proton is positive that is +1e elementary charge. Proton mass is slightly less than neutron mass. Mass of proton can be measured using the units kg,MeV/c, and u (amu).

Mass Of Proton

Mass of the proton is the sum of the mass of current quarks and the binding gluons. The mass of the proton is-

Proton mass mp = 1.672621898(21)×10−27 Kg

Mass of proton is higher than the mass of electron

Mass Of Proton In Other Units

The mass of the proton can be expressed in alternative units like – proton mass amu, mass of proton in kg, proton mass MeV. The table given below comprises the value of proton mass and corresponding units.
