Best Answer

The nucleus of an atom contains protons and neutrons. Hydrogen-1 is the lone exception. It has a single proton in its nucleus. Protons and neutrons, when they make up an atomic nucleus, are called nucleons. Links can be found below for more information.

Which particle is found outside the nucleus of the atom?

The nucleus of an atom is made of neutrons and protons. Electrons move around the outside of the nucleus. The number of electrons around an atoms nucleus compared to the number of protons in the nucleus determines the charge of an atom, and the charge of an atom effects the way that an atom reacts with other atoms.The three main particles of the atom are the electrons, protons and neutrons. The protons and neutrons are located at the nucleus. The electrons orbit around the nucleus.
