e·lec·tron

 (ĭ-lĕk′trŏn′)
n. Abbr. e
A stable elementary particle in the lepton class having a negative electric charge of 1 elementary unit (about 1.602 × 10-19 coulombs) and a mass of about 9.11 × 10-28 grams. Electrons are found in shells orbiting the nuclei of atoms and can also move freely through space as cathode rays in a cathode-ray tube or as beta particles emitted by radioactive nuclei, or flow in a current through a conducting material impelled by an electric potential difference.

electron

(ɪˈlɛktrɒn)
n
(Atomic Physics) a stable elementary particle present in all atoms, orbiting the nucleus in numbers equal to the atomic number of the element in the neutral atom; a lepton with a negative charge of 1.602 176 462 × 10–19 coulomb, a rest mass of 9.109 381 88 × 10–31 kilogram, a radius of 2.817 940 285 × 10–15 metre, and a spin of

e•lec•tron

(ɪˈlɛk trɒn)

n.
1. an elementary particle that is a fundamental constituent of matter, having a negative charge of 1.602 x 10−19 coulombs, and existing independently or as the component outside the nucleus of an atom.
2. a unit of charge equal to the charge on one electron.

e·lec·tron

(ĭ-lĕk′trŏn′)
A stable subatomic particle with a negative electric charge. Electrons spin about an atom's nucleus in orbits called shells. Electrons behave both as particles and as waves, and their motion generates electric and magnetic fields. Though the electron is the lightest subatomic particle, its charge is as great as that of a proton. See more at atom.

electron

1. One of the three basic subatomic particles. It is very light and orbits round the nucleus of an atom. It has a negative charge.
2. A subatomic particle carrying a negative charge.
