If two protons and two neutrons are removed from the nucleus of an oxygen atom a nucleus of which element remains?

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)

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)

Why do protons have atoms in them?

they have atoms in them because Ryan is a gay retard who has a para and needs major help quickly. Ryan is one that you would call slow.

What is the Number of protons in an atom is called the atomic?

\nDo you mean "Why is the number of protons in an atom called the atoms atomic number?"\n. \nThe defining characteristic of an atom is the number of protons in its nucleus. Hydrogen has one proton. All atoms of hydrogen have one proton. Helium has two protons. If you add a proton to a hydrogen nucl (MORE)

The atom of an element has one proton and two elements what is the atomic number?

The only atom that contains one proton is the hydrogen atom, also called protium. It is neutrally charged with a single proton at its nucleus, and a single electron orbiting.. It is possible that you are asking about the isotope of hydrogen called tritium . Tritium is a radioactive isotope of hydr (MORE)

How many protons are there in two atoms of oxygen?

Let's see, 1 hydrogen, 2 helium, 3 lithium, 4 beryllium, 5 boron, 6 carbon, 7 nitrogen, 8 oxygen. Eight protons in one atom of oxygen. Oxygen is diatomic, so there would be 16 protons in a typical oxygen "molecule."

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

None of the elements of the periodic table have the same number of protons.. All elements have their own unique atomic (proton) number which defines how many protons that element has in its atoms.. Just a note that the atomic number is also called the proton number. To know which number is which t (MORE)

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 atom has two more protons and two more electrons than bromine?

Bromine has 35 protons and 35 electrons (if it is neutral). Rubidium has 37 protons and 37 electrons (if it is neutral as well). The atomic number is equivalent to the number of protons in an atom. You can easily solve this problem by looking at your periodic table, finding Bromine (Br) and then (MORE)

Can an atom have two protons and no neutrons?

We don't find an atom with only two protons in its nucleus. Only the atom of hydrogen-1 has no neutrons. But there is something about a proton pair we might want to consider. In stars, we find two protons fused in what is called a proton-proton chain reaction, but one proton immediately undergoes (MORE)

If an atom has only two protons it would?

It would by definition be Helium (atom number = number of p rotons = 2) but the nucleus of the stable isotope 4 He also contains 2 n eutrons (the mass number = total number of p 's and n 's = 4)

Can a proton be shared by two atoms?

No protons and neutrons cannot be shared by two atoms, because they are in the nucleus where no interactions occur. Interatomic forces only happen between electrons of different atoms

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

Is an atom a proton?

An atom is composed of protons and electrons which is similar to the atomic number, and neutrons (every other atom except hydrogen-1 isotope).

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)
