How does the mass of an electron compare to that of a proton?

The mass of a proton is 2000 times the mass of an electron. Mass of electron: 9.10938 * 10 -31 kg Mass of proton: 1.67262 * 10 -27 kg Mass of neutron: 1.67493 * 10 -27 kg Note that protons and neutrons weigh approximately the same (neutrons are slightly heavier), but electrons are MUCH lighter than both of them. The MASS of the electron is much smaller than neutrons and protons. It is common, but incorrect, to use mass and weight interchangeably. They are not synonymous.

Is the number of protons equal to the atomic mass minus the atomic number?

No, the number of protons is the atomic number, what you have suggested is the number of neutrons

Is the mass number equal to the number of protons and electrons?

it is the sum of the number of neutrons and protons. Mass number is the sum of number of neutrons and protons while atomic number is equal to number of protons or electrons..

Is the mass number of an atom equal to the number of protons it contains?

No. The mass number (also, nucleonic or atomic number) of an atom is equal to the total number of nucleons (the collective term for protons and neutrons) in its nucleus. Isotopes are chemically near-identical atoms of an element that have the same number of protons and electrons, but a different number of neutrons. There are several isotopes for each element, so the mass number of atoms from the same element will vary depending upon the number of neutrons they possess. For instance: . Hydrogen normally has one proton; a mass number of 1. . Deuterium has one proton and one neutron; a mass number of 2. . Tritium has one proton and two neutrons; a mass number of 3. Deuterium and tritium both have near-identical chemical properties to hydrogen, but the nucleus is different and heavier; deuterium and tritium weigh two and three times as much as hydrogen respectively.

What is the ratio of the mass of a proton to the mass of a neutron?

What is the ratio of the mass proton to the mass of an ELECTRON?

Dunno, but the ratio of the mass of a proton to the mass of what prople think of as being an electron is approx 1980. I'd check that if I were you though. Probably OK to +- 5%.

How do the masses of electrons compare with the masses of protons?

The mass of a proton is 1836 times greater than the mass of an electron.

How many electrons equal the mass of one Proton?

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 the mass of 1 proton.

What is a neutral subatomic particle in an atoms nucleus that has masses nearly equal to that of a proton?

Protons and Neutrons compose the nucleus of an atom. Protons and nutrons weight combine to give the mass of the atom. In most atoms, the amount of Neutrons is equivalent to the amount of Protons.

How does the mass of a proton compare to the mass of a neutron?

The mass of a proton is about 1.672621777 x 10 -27 kg. The mass of a neutron is about 1.674927351 x 10 -27 kg. The equivalent energy of a proton is 938.272046 MeV/c 2 . The equivalent energy of a neutron is 939.565378 MeV/c 2 . The difference is 1.293332 MeV/c 2 , which is the amount of energy released when a down quark is converted into an up quark, changing the neutron into a proton during beta - decay, releasing an electron (0.510998928 MeV/c 2 ) and an electron antineutrino (< 2.2 eV) plus energy of about 0.782333 MeV/c 2 .

Protons plus neutrons plus electrons equals mass number?

no just protons + neutrons. but always number of electrons= number of protons( in an atom)

Do protons and electrons equal the atomic mass?

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 the mass of an electron is, in comparison, very small.

What is the atomic mass of an element equal to atomic number or number of protons?

Answer : The atomic mass is NOT equal to both 'atomic number' and 'number of protons . The atomic mass of an element is by approximation equal to, but not exactly , the sum of protons and neutrons in the nucleus of the atom. The number of protons is given by the atomic number, not atomic mass. So, only the atomic number of an element AND the number of protons are equal. The atomic mass is also depending on the number of neutrons. More explicative : The atomic mass of an element refers to a particular isotope of that element, and is equal to the sum of the protons and neutrons in the nucleus of atoms of that isotope. For example, carbon-12 atoms have 6 protons and 6 neutrons, while carbon-14 atoms have 6 protons and 8 neutrons. Atomic weight, which is shown on the Periodic Table is a weighted average of the atomic masses of all the different isotopes of each element. For example, the atomic mass of C-12 is 12.0000 a.m.u. and the atomic mass of Carbon is 12.0107(8) g/mol From the Periodic Table you can only tell the number of protons in the atoms of all of the isotopes of a given element, because the number of protons defines the element, and is the element's atomic number. However, you cannot tell the number of neutrons from the Periodic Table. You would have to look up the atomic masses of all the isotopes of each element in some sort of reference. The atomic number of an element is equal to the number of protons in the nucleus of an atom.

What subatomic particle has mass nearly equal to that of a proton but carries no electrical charge?

The neutron is a subatomic particle that has mass nearly equal to that of a proton but carries no electrical charge.

Where is the location of the mass of a proton?

If the mass within a proton has any structure -- in other words, if it is NOT simply a uniform sphere of about .87 fento-meters -- at present we lack the capability to discern that structure. The mass MIGHT be concentrated in the center, or at the edge, or clumped half-way in-between. We can't know at this point. More so, at the size level of a proton, mass structure begins to lose any meaning. The interactions of the three quarks within a proton may well be occuring in such a way that there really isn't ANY mass structure.

Is atomic mass equal the number of protons and neutrons or the weight of the nuclei?

The atomic mass number , which is always an integer, is the sum of the numbers of protons and neutrons in the nucleus. This is approximately equal to the mass of in atomic mass units of an atom of a particular isotope, because the only other constituents of an atom are electrons, of which there are the same number as protons but which have only about 0.005 times the mass of either protons or neutrons. There are also small variations in actual atomic masses because of the fact that nuclei have varying degrees of stability to radioactive decay, and this is reflected in their masses because of the equivalence between mass and energy first postulated by Einstein and later proved by many others.

Is the mass of a proton 1 gram?

No. A proton has a mass of about 1.66x10 -24 gram, an incredibly tiny fraction.

Do protons and neutrons have equally mass?

No, although their masses are very close. The difference is noticed when one considers the internal structure of the particles: a proton is comprised of two up quarks and one down quark, whereas the neutron is comprised of two down quarks and one up quark.

Is a atomic mass of one element is equal to mass of protons neutrons and electrons?

In a way yes, it is really only the amount of protons and neutrons, but electrons are so small they carry so little weight that they add so little consequece to the atomic weight of an atom.

Is the mass of a proton half the mass of a electron?

The mass of a Proton is certainly not half the mass of an Electron. A Proton's mass is a lot more than an Electrons. A Protons mass is around 908 MeV/c 2 , whilst an Electrons mass is 0.511 MeV/c 2 . This should answer the Question.

What is the mass of the neutrons and protons called?

Rest mass of neutron, and rest mass of proton. If you mean the symbol, mn 0 and mp 0. If you mean the values, to 4 significant figures 1.673*10^-27kg for a proton, 1.675*10^-27kg for a neutron.

Which more mass a- proton or electron?

A Proton is made up of Subatomic Particles, these include Quarks and Leptons. Within a Proton are two Up quarks and one Down quark. An Up quark has a mass of 2.4 MeV/c 2 , whilst a Down quark has a mass of 4.8 MeV/c 2 . An Electron is a type of Lepton, so we can not break it down any further. An Electron has very little mass 0.511 (MeV/c 2 ). So using the information provided we can safely say that a Protons mass is greater than an Electrons mass. This should answer the Question.

What the mass of a proton of a mole of sodium?

How does mass of electron compare with that of proton?

The mass of an electron is about 1822 times less than that of a proton.

Why do protons and electrons aproximately equal a atomic mass?

Protons are much heavier (1800 X approx) than electrons! Atomic mass is due to the mass of the protons and neutrons only a very small % of atomic mass is due to electrons.

How many electrons does it take to equal to the mass of one proton?

electrons are a 2000th of the mass of a proton/neutron. Because of this very low mass, electrons dont affect the mass number of elements on the periodic table

What is the mass of a proton travelling at v equals 0.8c?

First compute the Lorentz factor gamma. v/c = 0.8 v^2/c^2 = .64 1 - v^2/c^2 = 0.36 √(1 - v^2/c^2) = √.36 = 0.6 gamma = √(1 - v^2/c^2) = 1/0.6 = 1.6667 This is the factor by which the proton gains mass. So the answer is 1.667 x rest-mass Look up rest mass of proton & multiply by 1.667.

The number of protons is equal to the atomic mass minus the atomic number true or false?

Answer this question The only item that exists on the planet in allthree states of matter at standard pressure is

Is the mass of the proton about one atomic mass?

No. Different elements have different atomic masses, the allprotons have the same mass (ignoring the small mass loss to bindingenergy when bound inside an atomic nucleus). The atomic mass of an element is the weighted average of the atomicmasses of all isotopes of that element. The atomic mass of anisotope of an element is the sum of the protons and neutrons in itsnucleus, minus the mass loss of the protons and neutrons to bindingenergy, plus the mass of the electrons around the atom (but theirmass is so small as to usually be negligible and is ignored). The element hydrogen has one isotope whose nucleus is just asingle proton, all other elements have both protons and neutrons intheir nuclei. Only for this hydrogen isotope is its atomic massabout the mass of the proton. The mass of its proton nucleus is notreduced by binding energy, as there are no other particles in thenucleus for the proton to bind to and the mass of the singleelectron in the atom is about 1800 times smaller than the mass ofthe proton making it negligible in the total atomic mass.
