What is the atomic number of Carbon?
The atomic number of carbon (C) is 6. The atomic weight of C is 12.011 grams per mole. The atomic number of an element is the number of protons in the element. Carbon has 6 protons and therefore has an atomic number of 6 (See the Related Links below this answer for a periodic table with more information about this element)

What are the atomic symbols for oxygen carbon hydrogen nitrogen?
What is the symbolic name for a carbon atom with ten neutrons?
What is the chemical symbol for the element with the atomic number of 6?
What is the nuclear symbol and the hyphen notation for a carbon isotope with a mass number of 14 and atomic number of 6?
Note that since all carbon isotopes have an atomic number of 6, it is not necessary to state the atomic number; the fact that it is carbon means that it has the atomic number 6. So the isotope with a mass number of 14 is called carbon 14. As a symbol, it is C with a superscript 14 (which I am not able to type).
