The Atomic Mass is the number of protons, plus the number of neutrons. In this case, 8 + 6 = 14.

Furthermore, the six protons (atomic number) tells me that this is carbon; the six electrons tell me that this is a carbon atom, rather than a carbon ion (an ion is when the number of electrons does not equal the number of protons, making the atom electrically non-neutral). The eight neutrons tell me that this is an isotope (in other words, a version) of carbon called carbon-14, which happens to be mildly radioactive; and therefore useful to archaeologists in dating human artifacts.

How can atomic number and mass number be use to find the numbers of protons electrons and neutrons?

Atomic number is the number of protons in an atom. In a neutral atom the numbers of protons and electrons are equal. So if you know the atomic number of a neutral atom, you will also know the numbers of protons and electrons. Mass number is the sum of protons and neutrons in a particular isotope of an atom. Since atomic number is the number of protons in an atom, subtract the atomic number (or number of protons) from the mass number to get the number of neutrons. Mass no. - atomic no. = no. of neutrons or mass no. - no. of protons = no. of neutrons.


Where are protons neutrons and electrons located?

Protons, neutrons and electrons are located in the atom. The protons and neutrons are located in the atomic nucleus; the electrons are around the nucleus, arranged in shells.

How do you tell how many protons neutrons and electrons are in an atom?

IF you know the atomic mass and the atomic number the atomic no. is the number protons and electrons(number of protons is the same as the number of electrons) and whatever the atomic mass - protons and you will get the number of neutrons


What is the atomic mass of atom with 23 protons 24 neutrons and 25 electrons?

What is the atomic mass of atom with 23 protons 24 neutrons and 25 electrons? is it 72 actually its protons + neutrons = atomic mass, therefore it is 23+24= 47.
