1. In Current Science, a neutron is an electrically uncharged subatomic particle of slightly greater mass than the proton, which is a constituent (with the proton) of all atomic nuclei except that of the common isotope of hydrogen (H1). In the Standard Model of Particle Physics the neutron is made up of three quarks (2 Up & 1 Down) with fractional charges that add up to zero net charge.
2. In Neu Theory, a neutron (n) is the quantum whole, the neutral a-state of matter, made from three elementary matter particles. The neutron is the primal form of one of two states of N identical objects that make up the universe. The free neutron is unstable, and when not part of a stable nucleus will spontaneously transform into the quantum parts, the electric b-state of matter, hydrogen (H1).« Back to Glossary Index
