All oxygen atoms contain 8 protons in their nuclei. All neutral oxygen atoms have 8 electrons. There are three isotopes of oxygen, containing 8,9, or 10 neutrons in their nuclei.
Oxygen-16: 8 protons, electrons and neutronsOxygen-17: 8 protons and electrons, 9 neutronsOxygen-18: 8 protons and electrons, 10 neutrons
Oxygen has 8 electrons and protons. The number of neutrons is different for each isotope: Number of neutrons = Atomic mass of the isotope - Number of protons
Oxygen has 8 protons and electrons; the number of neutrons is different for each isotope.
Oxygen 16 is the most common isotope and it has 8 protons, 8 electrons and 8 neutrons
Oxygen has 8 protons, 8 electrons, and 8 neutrons.Look at the periodic table of the elements. The atomic number is same value as the protons and electrons. Round the atomic mass to a whole number then go mass-protons=neutrons.
Oxygen has the atomic number 8 and an atomic mass of 16.That means it has 8 protons, 8 electrons, and 8 neutrons.Rules for Calculating Protons, Electrons, and Neutrons in Uncharged CompoundsProtons = atomic numberElectrons = protons = atomic numberNeutrons = atomic mass - protonsRemember, if you have a charged ion, the number of electrons will be different.Oxygen is normally found as O2. A molecule of O2 will have 16 protons, 16 electrons, and 32 neutrons.
Oxygen has 8 protons, 8 neutrons and 16 electrons
Oxygen has 8 protons, 8 neutrons and 8 electrons. The symbol for oxygen is O and the atomic number is 8.
8 protons 8 electrons and 8 neutrons. Oxygen has the atomic number 8, so it has 8 protons, 8 electrons. The number of neutrons would be mass number-atomic number, so 15.9994-8=7.9994, so rounding would be 8 neutrons.
Oxygen has an atomic number of 8, which means it has 8 protons. Given a neutrally charged atom, the atomic number will be equal to the number of electrons, so again, there are 8 electrons. Ionized oxygen, which is still the same element, has gained or lost electrons such that it has a net positive charge (more protons than electrons) or negative charge (more electrons than protons). The primary isotope of oxygen, Oxygen-16 (that number being the sum of protons and neutrons), also has 8 neutrons. Rarer isotopes have fewer or greater numbers of neutrons with the same number of protons, but for the purposes of your question, 8 neutrons is the answer.
Oxygen has 8 protons as its atomic number is 8. It therefore has 8 electrons also for charge neutrality. The number of neutrons depends on the isotope. O-15 isotope will have 7 neutrons, O-16 isotope will have 8 neutrons. (Note: Mass number = Number of protons + number of neutrons)
Electrons are - charged.protons has opposite. Oxygen atom has 8 protons and neutrons.
Protons & electrons 8 Neutrons 10.
8 17 This isotope of oxygen has 8 protons (atomic number), 8 electrons and 9 neutrons. (Recallthat mass number is the total of protons and neutrons. )
in chemistry all elements have the same amount of electrons,protons and atomic number so if an element has an atomic number of say 64 the electrons and protons will be 64 but not the neutrons....so oxygen has an atomic nuber of 8, and 8 electrons and protons. but im not sure about neutrons
The isotope oxygen-18 has the mass number of 18. The atomic number of oxygen is 8, so all of its atoms, regardless of isotope, have 8 protons. In a neutral oxygen atom the number of protons equals the number of electrons, so it has 8 electrons. The number of neutrons equals the mass number minus the atomic number, which for oxygen-18 is (18 - 8), so there are 10 neutrons.
an oxygen atom has the atomic number of 8. meaning it has 8 protons, and 8 electrons. also, it has a mass number of 16. therefore, the number of neutrons must be 8 as well, as the protons and neutrons have a mass of 1 amu and the electrons have no charge. :)
The isotope oxygen-17 has 8 protons and electrons and 9 neutrons.
Oxygen has a mass number of 16.00 with atomic number 8 which means there are 8 electrons and 8 protons. The number of neutrons is always equal to the mass number- the atomic number. In this case it is 16 - 8= 8. Protons: 8 Neutrons: 8 (for isotope O16 the most common) Electrons: 8
Oxygen-16 has 8 electrons and 8 neutrons.
Oxygen has 8 electrons and protons; the number of neutrons is specific for each isotope. Number of neutrons in an oxygen isotope = Mass number - 8
Oxygen's atomic number is 8. Thus, neutral oxygen has 8 protons and 8 electrons. 16O has 16 - 8 = 8 neutrons.
No there are different number of protons, neutrons, and electrons
The number of neutrons will vary depending on the isotopes of hydrogen and oxygen in the molecule. The number of protons and electrons will be 10 each in every molecule.
Oxygen has 8 electrons and protons; the number of neutrons is specific for each isotope. Number of neutrons in an oxygen atom = Mass number - 8
