No, it is slightly greater.
No. Far off. A proton is 1,836 times heavier than an electron
1836 electrons equal the mass of 1 proton. A proton has a mass of 1.0073 amu, a neutron 1.0087 amu, and an electron 5.486 x 10-4. So, it would take 1836 electrons to equal t…he mass of 1 proton.
It would take about 333,000 earths to match the mass of the sun.
No, there are the same number of protons and electrons in an atom, but I don't think that they have the same mass. You're right, an electron is 1,836 times lighter than a pr…oton.
How many moons would it take to equal the mass f earth? I am going to assume you are referring the Earth's moon. This is a rather simple calculation. We simply take the ma…ss of the Earth, and divide by the mass of the moon. We can express the formula like this. mass of moon * number of moons = mass of Earth therefore mass of Earth ÷ mass of moon = number of moons The mass of the moon is approx. 7.347 7 × 1022 kg. The mass of the Earth is 5.9736×1024 kg. Now, it is a simple matter of division, and we can get the number 81.30081 recurring, so lets just say 81.3.
electron mass = 0.0005446623 amu = 9.1093 × 10-31 kg proton mass = 1.0072764668amu = 1.6726 x 10-27 kg neutron mass = 1.0086649156 amu = 1.6749 x 10-27 kg
Charge, the two particles are equal. Spin, the same. Mass, it would take 1836 electrons to equal one proton.
no just protons + neutrons but always number of electrons= number of protons( in an atom)
False - an electron is about 1/1836 the mass of a proton.
The mass of an electron is significantly smaller than that of a proton. The mass of 1,800 electrons is about the same as the mass of one single proton. The antiparticle of t…he electron, the positron, has the same mass as the electron.
1836 times the mass of an electron So how do you calculate '1836 times the mass of a proton' ? Mass of proton = 1.673 x 10-27 or (10 to the power of negative 27) Mass of… electron = 9.109 x 10-31 or (10 to the power of negative 31) Simply by dividing the largest mass (of protons) by the smallest mass (electrons): (1.67262 . 10-27) / (9.10939 . 10-31) = [1.67262 / 9.10939] . [10(-27)-(-31)] = 0.1836 . 10+4 = 1836
Protons and neutrons equal atomic mass. Although an atom has the same amount of protons as electrons, saying that electrons + neutrons = atomic mass would be incorrect as th…e mass of an electron is, in comparison, very small.
