A subatomic particle refers to any of the various constituent elements of matter that are smaller than a hydrogen atom. These particles include, but are not limited to, electrons, neutrinos, photons, and alpha particles. They are the fundamental components that interact with each other in the physical world.

Subatomic particles can be further categorized into types such as protons, neutrons, and electrons, as well as all hadrons and leptons. These particles are essential in the composition and functioning of atoms and molecules. There are two broad categories within subatomic particles: composite particles and elementary particles, which describe their complexity and fundamental nature.
