Question

Electrons are _____ particles.


  1. neutral

  2. positively charged

  3. negatively charged

  4. infinitely charged


Solution

The correct option is C

negatively charged


Electrons are the negatively charged particles of an atom. The negative charge of electrons in the orbitals of an atom balances the positive charge of the protons in the atomic nucleus. They are extremely small compared to all the other parts of the atom. The mass of an electron is almost 1837 times less than the mass of a proton.
