Lepton, Kirklees

A lepton is an elementary particle which does not undergo strong interactions, but is subject to the Pauli exclusion principle. The best known of all leptons is the electron which governs nearly all of chemistry as it is found in atoms and is directly tied to all chemical properties. Two main classes of leptons exist: charged leptons (also known as the electron-like leptons), and neutral leptons (better known as neutrinos).
