neutral
less common specialized meanings


Protons have a positive charge. Electrons have a negative charge. Neutrons are neutral.
  specialized senses typically mean that something does not belong to either of two other opposite alternatives; such as:
  • chemistry:  not acidic or alkaline
  • physics:  not with a positive charge or with a negative charge
  • electric circuitry:  with no voltage or electrical charge (though that is an informal simplification that would be dangerous if assumed in fact)
