Is it possible to find the radius of an electron?
Asked by: Bindu
The honest answer would be, nobody knows yet. The
current knowledge is that the electron seems to be
a 'point particle' and has refused to show any signs
of internal structure in all measurements. We have
an upper limit on the radius of the electron, set by
experiment, but that's about it. By our current
knowledge, it is an elementary particle with no
internal structure, and thus no 'size'.
