The particles with charge within atoms are protons (positive charge) and electrons (negative charge). The charge on a single electron is equal in magnitude to the charge on a single proton. Thus if there are equal numbers of protons and neutrons in an atom, the charge of that atom will be zero/neutral.
For example, a carbon atom always has 6 protons (definitive of carbon). If it also has 6 electrons, it will be neutral! Oxygen atoms have 8 protons. If they also have 8 electrons, they will be neutral. The positive and negative charges cancel each other out.
For example, with oxygen..... +8 for the protons and -8 for the electrons (remember each single proton's charge is equal in magnitude to that of a single electron's).......add them together and.......+8 + (-8) and you get 0. Neutral!
(Atoms are not neutrally charged if they have different numbers of protons and electrons. If the number of protons and electrons differ in an atom, the atom is referred to as an ion.)
atoms can be neutral when the charged particles that is the neg charged electrons are equal to the number of positively protons
Atoms contain one or more particles charged particles. They have to have at least one or more electrons and protons.
Atoms are the building blocks of matter and are microscopic in nature. They are neutral despite having charged particles because they contain an equal number of positive and negative particles, thus cancelling each other out.
Atoms are electrically neutral because they have equal number of protons and electrons.

Because they contain charged particles which attract each other
The electrons.The electrons.The electrons.The electrons.
charged particles that form when atoms transfer electrons are
Molecules contain atoms and these atoms contain subatomic particles.
The positively charged particles that make up atoms are protons, the negatively charged particles are called electrons, and the particles with no charge are called neutrons.
There are no atoms in an atom as an atom is a small and an indivisible part of things. Inside the atoms are three parts, viz: Protons:Positively charged particles Neutrons:Neutrally charged particles Electrons:Negatively charged particles

Any ion contain atoms and these atoms contain subatomic particles.
Molecules contain atoms; only atoms contain subatomic particles.
It is a matter of how they are arranged and electrically charged that changes the properties of them
Atoms have equal number of positively charged particles and negatively charged particles and some particles having no charge. Since numbers of positively charged particles and negatively charged particles are equal the NET charge as whole is zero.
What are charged particles that form when atoms gain or lose electrons
Atoms are neutral despite having charged particles because there are equal protons and electrons. Protons have a positively charged and electrons are negatively charged.
Atoms are neutral particles. Ions are charged atoms.
the nucleus of an atom has two subatomic particles protons and neutrons the nucleus does not contain atoms but subatomic particles of atoms
Yes, atoms contain subatomic particles.
the no of positive charges are equal to negative charges (protons = electrons) in any neutral atom.
One! An atom is not made up of other atoms, but has a nucleus of a positively-charged proton and a neutrally-charged neutron. It is surrounded by a network of positively-charged particles called electrons. (sorry, NEGATIVELY charged particles called electrons!)
there are 3 fundamental particles in an atom . they are -protons - the positively charged particlesneutrons- they are neutral particleselectrons - the negatively charged particles...
Atoms contain positively charged nucleus at the centre and negatively charged electrons revolving around the nucleus. The nucleus consists of positively charged protons and neutral neutrons. All atoms except positron (an isotope of hydrogen) have atleast one neutron.
