Answered by Expert


A comparision between properties of subatomic particles is being done below:
Both protons and neutrons have the same mass - much larger than the relatively tiny electron, whose mass is in fact  negiligible.(It is 1/1833 times) 

Both protons and electrons have an electrical charge. Both have the same size of electrical charge, but the proton is positive and the electron is negative. The neutron is neutral.

The table summarises these differences in properties.

particle relative mass relative charge
proton 1 +1
neutron 1 0
electron negligible -1
