Oxygen has the atomic number 8, so it has 8 protons. Almost all oxygen has 8 neutrons, for an atomic mass number of 16. If you remove 2 of each, you now have an atomic number of 6 and a mass number of 12 (6 protons, 6 neutrons). If you look up element 6 on a period table, you will find the element (MORE)

# How many protons does carbon dioxide have Considering that the two oxygen atoms has 16.?

Since Carbon dioxide is CO 2 then there are two oxygens and one carbon, the number of protons in CO 2 is 16 + 6 (atomic number of carbon) = 22. It has 22 protons.

# What are protons in an atom?

In the nucleus of the atom there are two things: protons and neutrons. Protons have a positive charge and neutrons no charge. Protons are subatomic particles found in the central unit on an atom: the nucleus. It's positively charged.

# Where is a proton in the atom?

Protons are found in the Nucleus of the Atom. In fact the Nucleus of an Atom can only be made up of Protons and Neutrons. The Electrons in the Atom just orbit the Nucleus. Actually most of the Atom is just empty space in terms of volume of the Electron(s) and the Nuleus. This should answer the Quest (MORE)

The nucleus shows that it is oxygen (O2) but the electrons don't add up properly; there should be eight, not ten.

# What happens if two neutrons in a uranium atom are changed into protons?

The change of a neutron in the nucleus of an atom into a proton and an electron is beta minus decay . In this form of radioactive decay, the weak interaction (weak force) mediates the transformation of a neutron into a proton, and an electron and an antineutrio. The later two are ejected from the n (MORE)

# What are two atoms called when they have different number of protons?

\nAn atom's number of protons determines what element it is, so if two atoms have different numbers of protons they are two different elements. \nHowever, there can be an atom of an element with the same number of protons but a different number of neutrons; this is called an isotope.

# What are two atoms that have the same number of protons called what?

they are the same element because an element has an atomic number through its number of protons so if there was an element with 2 protons it would be number 2 in the periodic table which is helium, if another element has 2 protons it should be helium still, if it wasn't modified in anyway

# How can atoms of two elements with different number of protons have the same charge?

If they're in the same group (vertical column) on the periodic table, then they will have the same charge. It's based on how many valence electrons they have. The periodic table is organized this way to make it easy to predict things like reactivity.

16 The atomic number of an element is always the same as the number ofprotons in an atom of the element.

# What is an atom called if you have two protons two neutrons and two electrons?

The atomic number is the number of protons, so in this case it is2, which is Helium. The charge or ionization of the atom is thedifference between the number of protons and the number ofelectrons; in this case, they are the same, so the atom is neutral(not ionized). The atomic mass number is the sum (MORE)

# Why cant an atom have one proton one neutron and two electrons?

Well seeing as how neutral atom is meaning neither a positive or a negative charge and a proton is positively charged an electron is negatively charged If you had 2 electrons the balance would kinda be disrupted wouldn't it? Because then your nuetral atom would in fact be negative.

# Does a Mg2 plus ion have two more protons than an atom of Mg?

Absolutely not. Magnesium is magnesium, whether it's an ion or not. So it must have 12 protons. The number of electrons, however, is different. Neutral (non-ionic) magnesium has 12 electrons; the magnesium ion (Mg +2 ) has 10 electrons, which means it is isoelectronic with neon.

# How can atoms of two elements that have a different number of protons have the same charge?

The charge of an atom depends on the number of protons and thenumber of electrons. If the number of protons and electrons is thesame, which is generally regarded as the normal state, then theatom will be neutral with no charge. If there is a difference inthe number, then the charge will be equal to (MORE)
