Textbook Problem

Based on the quark composition of a neutron, show that is charge is 0.

To determine

To show:

The charge of a neutron is 0 based on the quark composition of a neutron.

Explanation

Concept used:

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, the bottom quark, and the top quark.

A neutron comprises of 2 down quarks and 1 up quark. The charge of an upquark is +2/3 and that of a down quark is -1/3

Therefore, the net charge of a neutron =13
