What are electrons?

Q6. What are electrons?

Ans. Electrons are the very tiny electrically charged particles that whizz round inside an atom. They were discovered by the English physicist J.J. Thomson (1856-1940) in 1879 during some experiments with cathode ray tubes. (Computer and TV screens are cathode ray tubes and cathode rays are actually streams of electrons)
