Atoms consist of protons, neutrons and electrons. Protons have a positive charge. Electrons have a negative charge. And neutrons have no charge at all.

### All atoms have a blank charge?

If there are more protons than electrons there is a positive charge. If there is more electrons than protons there is a negative charge.

Nuetral nitrogen atoms have 7 protons and 7 electrons.

### In atoms with the same number of electrons and protons. what is the charge?

There is no charge. The atom is neutral.

### Atoms have no electric charge because they?

They have an equal numbers of electrons and protons...MoMMy =)

### Why do atoms have no electric charge?

It has an equal number of protons and electrons.

### How are atoms that are neutral in charge?

Atoms that are neutral in charge have the same quantity of protons and electrons. Negative ions have extra electrons, and positive ions are missing electrons.

### Is there a positive charge in atoms with equal numbers?

Atoms have positive protons in the nucleus with an equal number of negative electrons around the outside the nucleus. No there is no charge on an atom with equal numbers of protons and electrons.

### Why is there no overall electrical charge on an aluminium atom?

because the electrons and protons are equal.

### What parts of an atom are equal to each other?

It depends on what you mean by what parts are equal. Protons and electrons both have the same magnitude of charge with opposite signs and electrons are much less massive than protons. Protons and neutrons are approximately equal in mass but protons have a charge of +e Coulombs while neutrons have a charge of 0. Atoms can often exist with unequal numbers of protons and electrons. Such atoms are called ions and have a negative charge if they have more electrons than protons and positive charge if they have more protons than electrons.

### How are protons related to elements?

Protons are the positive charge electrons in atoms that make up elements.

### What is an atoms charge when it has 20 electrons 20 neutrons and 20 protons but then it loses two electrons?

This atoms charge would be +2. Electrons are negative, protons are positive, when they are in equal amounts they balance out to zero, when you lose electrons you have more protons, so the atom becomes positively charged.
