What is an electron?

An electron is a subatomic particle commonly represented as e or e. It possesses negative polarity. An electron inherits the properties like – Charge, Mass, Spin, etc. The values of the electron imply the value of the charge of an electron, the mass of the electron, and a quantum mechanical property- spin of the electron along with corresponding units.

Value of electron Units
Electron charge 1.60217662 × 10-19 Coulomb’s
Electron charge in eV 1.60217662 × 10-19 Joule
Electron mass 9.10938356 × 10-31 Kg
Electron mass in amu 0.00054858 Atomic Mass Unit(amu)
