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.
