Dear subrata303link@rediffmail.com

Thanks for asking us a question in Ask the Expert section of TopperLearning.com.

Mass of electron: 9.1 x 10-31 kg.

Mass of proton: 1.6726 x 10-27 kg.

Mass of neutron: 1.6749 x 10-27 kg.

Looking at the data given, the masses of electron, proton and neutron are negligible.

So there won't be any noteworthy change in the conditions of the Earth even if we increase the mass of electrons, protons and neutrons by 10 or 100 times .

Physical propeties like melting point, boiling point, density, De Broglie Wavelength etc. are dependent on the mass of particles.
