Is the number Protons the same as electrons?
No: an atom can gain or lose electrons and become a negative or positive ion. An atom that does have the same number of electrons as protons is said to be stable.
101 electrons...to find the number of electrons in an element, you need to know the number of protons. There are the same amount of protons as electrons. The number of protons is the same number as the atomic number. Mendelevium has 101 as its atomic number therefore 101 protons and therefore 101 electrons.
the number of protons and electrons are the same. on the Periodic Table of Elements you will see your element that you are looking for, then you will see there is a number under it. )ex. 9=flourine) that number is the number of protons. then, usually the number of protons, electrons, and neutrons are the same.
