The muon (/ˈmjuːɒn/; frae the Greek letter mu (μ) uised tae represent it) is an elementary pairticle seemilar tae the electron, wi unitary negative electric charge o roughly −1 an a spin o 12, but wi much mair mass (Lua error in package.lua at line 80: module 'Module:Gapnum' not found.). Thegither wi the electron (mass Lua error in package.lua at line 80: module 'Module:Gapnum' not found.), the tau (mass Lua error in package.lua at line 80: module 'Module:Gapnum' not found.), ), an the three neutrinos, it is classified as a lepton. As is the case wi ither leptons, the muon is nae believed tae hae ony sub-structure at aw (i.e., is nae thoucht tae be componed o ony simpler pairticles), except possibly at the string scale.
