Asked in Chemical Bonding
How many protons are in an atom with atomic number of 6 and mass number of 13?
The number of protons in an atom is equivalent to its atomic number, so this atom has 6 protons, and is therefore carbon. Further, as the mass number is the number of protons AND neutrons a mass number of 13 this carbon atom has 7 neutrons. Carbon-13 is a stable isotope of carbon. ...
