an elementary particle that participates in weak interactions but does not participate in the strong interaction; it has a baryon number of 0. Some known leptons are the electron, the negative muon, the tau-minus particle, and the neutrinos associated with each of these particles.
The fundamental matter particles that do not carry color charge. They are all spin / particles, and include the electron, muon, tau, and their corresponding neutrinos. See also: fundamental particle, spin, electron, neutrino, Debriefing
Along with q uarks, leptons make up all known matter. Unlike quarks, leptons do not participate in strong interactions. Neutrinos and electrons are two common examples. There are three flavors of leptons: electron, muon, and tau.
A class of elementary particles that includes the electron and its antiparticle, the muon and its antiparticle, the tau and its antiparticle, and the neutrino and antineutrino associated with each of these particles.
A lepton is a fundamental particle of which the most common example is the electron ( e- ). The other leptons are the muon ( Î¼- ), tau ( Ï„- ), and three neutrinos ( Î½e , Î½Î¼ and Î½Ï„ ). Electrons, muons and tau have a charge of -1, and neutrinos have charge zero. Each lepton has an antimatter equivalent which has the opposite charge - for the electron, the antimatter equivalent is called the positron ( e+ ). All leptons have a spin of one half, and are fermions. Reference Link (http://www2.slac.stanford.edu/vvc/theory/leptons.html)
A fundamental matter particle that does not participate in strong interactions (eg. electron, muon, neutrinos...). ('light' particles)
Any of six elementary particles that experience the weak force but not the strong force. The known leptons are the electron, muon, tau, and their three associated neutrinos. There are also six corresponding anti-leptons.
Particles (neutrinos, electrons, muons) which do not take part in strong interactions.
A light sub-atomic particle, such as an electron.
a sub-atomic particle, one of a family of elementary particles
A lepton is any of a family of elementary particles that participate in the weak force, for example, the electron.
A fundamental fermion that does not participate in strong interactions. The electrically-charged leptons are the electron (e), the muon (µ), the tau (), and their antiparticles. Electrically-neutral leptons are called neutrinos ().
Fundamental particle family composed of the electron, the muon, the tau, and 3 generations of neutrinos.
one of the two basic building blocks of matter (An electron is a lepton.)
an elementary particle that is not affected by the strong force.
A type of elementary particle.
A particle (such as the electron or neutrino) not subject to strong interactions.
Collective name for the light particles electron, muon, tau, and their associated neutrinos.
Leptons are subatomic particles that are susceptible to the weak nuclear force but not the strong force (the force that binds an atomic nucleus together). There are six leptons: the electron, muon, tau, electron neutrino, muon neutrino, and tau neutrino.
In physics, a lepton is a particle with spin-1/2 (a fermion) that does not experience the strong nuclear force. The leptons form a family of elementary particles that are distinct from the other known family of fermions, the quarks.
