A proton IS a hydrogen atom if you remove the electron. All the electron orbital shells etc., have no reality without the electron.

Remove the electron from a hydrogen atom.

A hydrogen atom consists of a lone proton and its paried electron. If the hydrogen atom loses the electron and becomes a positively charged ion, the hydrogen atom would then consist only of the proton.

A hydrogen atom consists of one proton.

There is one proton in a hydrogen atom and no electrons or neutrons. Because the atom only has a single proton, it is referred to as a proton in chemistry.

H+ is just a proton, as long as the hydrogen ion is protium.

The element with one proton per atom is hydrogen.

A hydrogen atom has a diameter of about 60 picometers while a proton has a diameter of 1.75 femotometers. So a hydrogen atom's diameter is about 35,000 times that of a proton.

A proton is a subatomic particle which is the same in whichever element it is found. A proton from a Xenon atom is no different to that from a Hydrogen atom or a Uranium atom.

The answer for a hydrogen atom would be about 100 meters across a proton is about 1/10,000 th of the diameter of a hydrogen atom.

A hydrogen atom, H, is a proton (as nucleus) with one electron orbitting around it. A proton is just (the same as above) one proton, which lacks the electron: H+ .

a Proton. A hydrogen-1 atom (the most abundant isotope of hydrogen) has no neutrons and only 1 proton. So the atom is 1 proton and 1 electron. So the ion, when the electron is removed, the entire ion is just 1 single proton.

The hydrogen atom has no neutrons in the nucleus. There is just a proton and an electron.

A hydrogen atom always has one proton.

You are an atom of heavy hydrogen, or deuterium. Most hydrogen has one proton and one electron, which form a neutral atom. But once in a while, a neutron will stick to the proton, and then the atom, which is still hydrogen (it has just the one proton) will be about twice as massive as "regular" or "common" hydrogen. It is another isotope of hydrogen called heavy hydrogen or deuterium.

That would be a hydrogen atom!

what is located in the middle of any atom is it's nucleus. The nucleus of an atom generally contains a mix of protons and neutrons but a hydrogen atom contains only one proton. So in answer to your question, a proton is in the middle of a hydrogen atom.

Every hydrogen atom contains a single proton.

There is one proton and one electron in the atom of hydrogen-1 isotope.

An acidic hydrogen atom is a hydrogen atom that has lost its electron and is running around as a hydrogen ion. The lone proton (in 1H) has loaned out its electron in a chemical reaction, like to chlorine in HCl, and when HCl is combined with water, the H and the Cl separate into H+ and Cl- ions. That H+ ion is the acidic hydrogen atom.

the first isotope of hydrogen

The "NUMBER" (#) of Protons in an Atom of Hydrogen is one (1). The number of protons is what makes a specific element that element. Hydrogen always has one proton no matter what. If someone says that a hydrogen atom has two protons(they are incorrect), it is no longer hydrogen; it is the element Helium.

There would be only 1 electron in a hydrogen atom because hydrogen only has 1 proton.

In one atom of hydrogen there is 1 proton.

A stable atom of hydrogen (H)
