Why are electronics stuffs called “electronics” but not “protonics” or “neutronics”?

In: Physics

Because electronics deal with electricity, which is the emission, flow and control of electrons. In a simplified manner electricity is created when you move electrons trough a wire, not protons or neutrons.

Because the electron is that part that moves around in wires.

Protons and Neutrons usually stay were they are.

It is the electrons that “move” or carry current when a voltage or potential is applied to a circuit

In an electrical environment, for example a light bulb and a battery, on atomic level it are the electrons of the three of them which are moving around, the protons and neutrons stay don’t move.
