What is the protons neutrons and electrons in a protium atom?
Protium has 1proton(P), 0 nutrons (N) and 1 electron (E) Deuterium has 1(P), 1(N) and 1 (E) Tritum has 1 (P), 2 (N) and 1 (E)
NO, protons and neutrons are in the centre of an atom and the electrons are spinning round on the outside of an atom. protons have a positive charge and electrons have a negative charge, this why they cannot be together. However, neutrons have no charge, that is why they are combined with the protons.
How do you find the mass number of an atom if you know how many protons neutrons and electrons that atom has?
Protons, neutrons and electrons form an atom. Neutrons and protons are within the nucleus of an atom, the electrons orbit the atom on what is called 'shells'. Neutrons have no charge, they are neutral particles. Protons are positively charged, and electrons are negatively charged. Electrons have a weight of next to nothing, so they are commonly referred to without a weight. However, neutrons and protons both have a mass of 1, being inside the nucleus…
Protons and Neutrons are in the middle of the atom whereas electrons rotate around them or outside of the atom. Protons are positively charged. Electrons are negatively charged. Neutrons are neutrally charged. Protons and neutrons are in even amounts of elements. Protons and neutrons weigh about the same whereas electrons weigh about 1/1800 of a proton.
An atom of the element iron has an atomic number of 26 and an atomic weight of 56. If it is neutral how many protons neutrons and electrons does it have?
protons 26 electrons 26 neutrons Iron will have 26 electrons 26 protons (they are = because the atom is neutral) and it will have 30 neutrons (because protons + neutrons= your atomic weight) electrons have virtually no mass If the iron atom had a +2 charge there would be two less electrons than protons. 26 protons 24 electrons 30 neutrons.
