pro·ton

 (prō′tŏn′)
n. Abbr. p
The stable, positively charged nucleon, having a mass 1,836 times that of an electron and being a baryon composed of two up quarks and one down quark. The proton is a basic component of all atomic nuclei and the nucleus of the protium isotope of hydrogen.

[From Greek prōton, neuter of prōtos, first; see per in Indo-European roots.]
