Electrons are some of the most flummoxing part of the universe. Electrons are subatomic particles with a negative charge. Contrary to popular notion, electrons do not orbit the nucleus of the atom, but as a consequence of the laws of Quantum Mechanics, they form a probability shell around the nucleus of an atom, with the probability density being weaker the further away from the distance is to the center. When a molecule loses or gains an electron, it becomes an ion, which means that it now has a net charge.
