An electron with a negative charge, as contrasted with a positron.
(Particle Physics) A positively charged lepton with the same mass and magnitude of charge as the electron; the antiparticle of an electron
The definition of a particle is a very small amount of something.
The electrons are in the orbitals.
A stable elementary particle in the lepton family having a mass at rest of 9.107 × 10&spminus;28 grams and a negative electric charge of approximately 1.602 × 10&spminus;19 coulombs. Electrons orbit about the positively charged nuclei of atoms in distinct orbitals of different energy levels, called shells . Electrons are the primary charge carriers in electric current.
