A measurement of mass used for elementary particles. The formula is 1 billion (G) electron volts (eV) divided by (over) the speed of light (c) squared. This measurement equals about 1.78 x 10^-36 kg (3.92 x 10^-36 lb). Following is a chart of some elementary particles and their mass:

Up Quark:                .0015 to .005
Down Quark:              .003 to .009
Strange Quark:           1.1 to 1.4
Charm Quark:             .06 to .17
Top (truth) Quark:       about 170
Bottom (beauty) Quark:   4.1 to 4.4
