What is a Proton in Nuclear Physics?

Here we are going to discuss "what is proton", A proton is a positively charged and subatomic particle, which means a particle that is smaller than an atom in size. A proton has 1.6726219 × 10-27 kilograms mass, which is equal to the hydrogen atom, a "(H) Hydrogen Atom → (H+) Proton + (E-) Electron".


Basic Comparision of Protons, Electrons, and Neutrons

For more understanding, let's create the behavior comparison between Protons, Electrons, and Neutrons that makes more clearer. Even you can see the below-tagged image which is also indicating the same thing.


  • Protons are positively charged particles.
  • Electrons are negatively charged particles.
  • Neutrons have no charge.


History and Founder of Proton

In 1909, researcher Ernest Rutherford founded Proton when he was experimenting with "Gold Foil", which is (gold foil) used to protect satellites from the extreme temperatures encountered in space.
