And that about a very simple question:

What is the specific formula of the electron ( not a symbol)?

1.

e-

2.

electrons donot have formulas

but have charge which is expressed by e and

unit is coulombs. e=1.6*10^-19.

or for mass comparing with proton

(mass of electron=(1/1836) *mass of proton).

3.

The formula for what? the speed? the densiity?

Be more specific.

If you just mean the symbol it is (e-)

4.

(A very stupid question indeed!)

What does one really mean by the formula for an electron?

If u mean symbol, then the answer could be e-

5.

Time-independent Schrodinger wave equation

in one dimension for an electron is:

d^2 Ô/ dx^2 = - (2m/h^2)[E - U(x)] Ô(x)

6.

Not simple, you are actually right,

expecting even an electron to have a formula.

But the very behaviour of a simple electron can

constitute a formula occupying miles in paperwork.

If one day we work out that formula,

even to some approximation,

then a true window called science has opened to us.
