In physics, the neutron is a subatomic particle [[1]] with no net electric charge [[2]] and a mass of 939.573 (1.6749 × 10 -27 kg, slightly more than a proton).

Uses Edit

The neutron plays an important role in many nuclear reactions. For example, neutron capture often results in neutron activation [[3]], inducing radioactivity [[4]]. In particular, knowledge of neutrons and their behavior has been important in the development of nuclear reactors and nuclear weapons [[5]].
