Charged particle

In physics, a charged particle is a particle with an electric charge. It may be an ion, such as a molecule or atom with a surplus or deficit of electrons relative to protons. It can be the electrons and protons themselves, as well as other elementary particles, like positrons. It may also be an atomic nucleus devoid of electrons, such as an alpha particle, a helium nucleus. Neutrons have no charge, so they are not charged particles unless they are part of a positively charged nucleus. Plasmas are a collection of charged particles, atomic nuclei and separated electrons, but can also be a gas containing a significant proportion of charged particles. Plasma is called the fourth state of matter because its properties are quite different from solids, liquids and gases.

    Water Vapor Found On Jupiter’s Moon Ganymede

    IFL Science 28 Jul 2021
    Ganymede is usually too cold for ice to melt and evaporate. However, research published in Nature Astronomy has shown that the rain of charged particles and sunlight at high noon is enough to sublimate (change from frozen to gas) molecules such as oxygen and water vapor ...
