### How many neutrons does an atom of Americium have in its nucleus?

It depends on the isotopes of Americium
e.g. Americium-241 has 95 electrons and 146 neutrons
Americium-243 has 95 electrons and 148 neutrons
To find out the number of neutrons for Americium you take the
Isotope number (x) minus away the number of electrons (95)
e.g. Americium-x
So, Americium-x has 95 electrons and (x-95) neutrons..
OR
You take the relative atomic mass (x) and subtract it with the
number of electrons (95)
(x-95) = Neutrons
