Based on quark composition of a proton, show that its charge is +1.

To determine

To show:

The proton'scharge is +1 based on quark composition of a proton.

Explanation

All particles are made up of elementary particles called quarks. Quarks are of 6 types. They are up quark, down quark, strange quark, charmed quark, bottom quark and top quark.

A proton consists of 2 up quarks and 1 down quark

Up quark has a charge of +2/3 and the down quark has a charge of -1/3

So, the net charge of a proton =
