# What is the relative size of a proton?

Protons and neutrons have a mass of 1.67 x 10^-27 kg. That is 1,833 times the mass of an electron. So if the electron were the size of a basketball, which has a weight of 22 oz., the weight of the ... Read More »

## What is the relative charge carried by a proton?

A proton is located inside the nucleus and has a relative mass of one and a relative charge of one. A neutron is also inside and has the same mass, but has no charge. An electron is located outside... Read More »

## What is the mass of a proton in amu?

The mass of a proton is 1.00728 amu, or atomic mass units. This number factors in isotopes to calculate the average atomic weight. Scientists use atomic weight to describe the weight of atoms becau... Read More »

## What is the mass of a proton in kN?

A proton weighs 1.007276 atomic mass units (AMU). Because an AMU is equal to 1.63 x 10-29 (0.00000000000000000000000000163) kilonewtons (kN), a proton weights just slightly more: that is, 1.64 x 1... Read More »

## What is the mass of a proton?

The atomic mass of a proton is 1.6726 x 10 ^-27 kg. Other atomic particles include electrons with a mass of .00091 x 10^ -27kg and neutrons (which contain both protons and electrons) that weigh 1.6... Read More »
