This is very simple, just look at the Periodic Table. Boron has the atomic number of 5, meaning that it has five protons and five electrons. As for the neutrons, most chemicals have isotopes, which means that one atom of an element may have a slightly lower or higher neutron count of an atom of the same element. In boron's case, it has two isotopes. Boron-10 would have 5 neutrons, and Boron-11 would have 6 neutrons, although boron-11 makes up somewhere in the range of 80% of known boron atoms.

Is boron protons electrons or neutrons?

Boron is an atom or element, and it contains protons, electrons, and neutrons.

What element has 5 protons and 5 electrons and 4 neutrons?

Any atom with 5 protons is Boron, and a neutral (no net electrical charge) boron atom will also have 5 electrons. A Boron atom with 4 neutrons is Boron-9, a highly unstable isotope.

An atom has 5 protons 6 neutrons and 5 electrons what is the name of the element?


How many protons and neutrons and electrons does the element boron have?

Since Boron's atomic number is 5, it has 5 protons and 5 electrons. The standard boron atom has 6 neutrons in it.

What element has 5 protons and 6 electrons?

Any atom with 5 protons is boron, regardless of the number of neutrons. This would specifically be the isotope boron-11.

How many protons electrons and neutrons in boron?

In a single Boron atom there are 5 protons, 5 electrons and 6 neutrons.

A boron atom has 5 protons and 6 neutrons what is the mass number?

The mass of an atom is found by adding the number of the protons and neutrons. So, a boron atom with 5 protons and 6 neutrons would have an atomic mass of 11.

How many protons are in a boron?

The element boron has atomic number 5; therefore, there are 5 protons in each boron atom, because the atomic number of an element is defined as the number of protons in each atom of an element.

Why does boron-11 have 6 neutrons and 6 protons?

This isn't true. Boron-11 has 5 protons and 6 neutrons. An atom with 6 protons and 6 neutrons would be carbon-12. The 11, in boron-11 is the atomic mass of the atom, which is equal to the sum of the number of protons and neutrons in the nucleus. All boron atoms have 5 protons, this is what makes it boron. Therefor, in order to have a mass of 11, a boron atom must also have 6 protons (5+6=11).

What is the mass numberfor an atom with 5 electrons 5 protons and 5 neutrons?

It is the boron element. It contains similar numbers of electrons and protons.

How are boron-10 and boron-11 different?

Boron-10 has five protons and 5 neutrons Boron-11 is an atom that contains five protons and six neutrons

What many protons and neutrons would B-11 have?

There are 5 protons in every boron atom and therefore boron-11 isotope has 6 neutrons. The sum of the protons and neutrons of an atom is equivalent to its relative mass number.

How many neutrons does boron have?

a regular boron atom (5B11 isotope) has six neutrons and five protons

A boron atom is made of?

The boron atom is made up of 5 electrons, 5 protons, and 6 neutrons. This element is low in abundance in both the solar system and the Earth's crust.

How many protons are in boron atom?

5 protons, 5 electrons and 6 neutrons :)

Which pair below describes isotopes of the same element Aan atom with 6 protons and 8 neutrons - an atom with 8 protons an 6 neutrons Ban atom with 6 protons and 6 neutrons - an atom with 6 p?

The pair below that describes isotopes of the same element is B, an atom with 6 protons and 6 neutrons-an atom with 6 protons. It is not A, an atom with 6 protons and 8 neutrons- an atom with 8 protons and 6 neutrons. Isotopes of the same element have the same number of protons and electrons, which is the atomic number of the element.

Which atom has 6 neutrons 5 protons and 5 electons?


How many protons electrons neutrons does boron have?

The number of protons in an atom will always be the same as the atomic number, by which the periodic table is organized. So figuring out how many protons an atom has just becomes an exercise at reading the table. In this case, boron has an atomic number of five. If the particle is specifically an atom, then it will be neutral and the number of electrons will balance the number of protons exactly. The number of neutrons will differ depending on the isotope - atoms of the same element with different numbers of neutrons. Boron has two isotopes, the most commonly found being 11B with six neutrons.

Is atom a element?

An atom is an element. Every atom has a certain amount of protons, neutrons and electrons and these are what define which element that atom is.

How many neutrons are in the nucleus of boron?

Boron has 2 isotopes and both are stable thus, depending on the isotope, an atom of Boron could have 5 or 6 neutrons in it nucleus. 10B has 5 neutrons (and 5 protons) 11B has 6 neutrons (and 5 protons) As about about 80% of all boron is 11B, most Boron atoms will be found to have 6 neutrons.

Do lithium atom an the boron atom have the same parts?

All atoms contain protons, neutrons and electrons.
