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.

Overview

In 1920, the "neutron" was introduced, in namesake, as a theoretical particle by Ernest Rutherford.

In 1932, the neutron was discovered, based on data by Ettore Majorana and James Chadwick.

The neutron, eventually, was classified as a type of "baryon".
