What distinguishes one type of an atom form another?
An atom is distinguished for another by the # of protons.
What type of hybridization occurs of a bonbon atom participating in a triple bond with another contract atom?
Protons, neutrons, and electrons can form any type of atom on the Periodic Table of Elements. The amount of protons determine what type of element an atom is. If the number of neutrons differ from the stable amount it should have, the atom is known as an isotope. If the amount of electrons differ from the amount of protons, the atom is known as an ion.
