Asked in Atoms and Atomic Structure
How many protons neutrons and electrons are in nitrogen?
A neutral nitrogen atom has 7 protons, 7 neutrons, and 7 electrons. If it is electrically charged, the number of electrons will be different. If it is an isotope of nitrogen other than the most common (N-14), the number of neutrons will be different.
Protons = Atomic Number
Neutrons = Atomic Mass - Protons
Electrons = Protons
Atomic number is the amount of protons in element.
