In particle physics, neutron (TR:13) (LH:29) (TL:42), from neutral-, meaning: “charge zero” + -on, meaning: “subatomic particle”, symbol n, is a bound state particle comprised of two down quarks and one up quark, bound together by the exchange force mediated by gluons.
The neutron, eventually, was classified as a type of "baryon".
