a neutron is neutral. it doesn't have the same number of protons and electrons, but an atom that is neutral does. A neutron has the same mass as a proton but it doesn't have a chrge. Protons are positively charged and electrons are negatively charged.
An electrically neutral atom has the same number of electrons as protons. Since protons have a positive change and electrons have a negative charge, when there is the same number of them, the charges cancel each other out. Example: Helium is neutral when it has 2 electrons, since it also has 2 protons.
Number of protons
the number of protons and electrons are the same. on the Periodic Table of Elements you will see your element that you are looking for, then you will see there is a number under it. )ex. 9=flourine) that number is the number of protons. then, usually the number of protons, electrons, and neutrons are the same.
The number of electrons is the same as the number of protons or the atomic number. If the element is an ion of e.g O+2, you would take away 2 from the atomic number and if it is O-2, you would add two electrons
The numbers of protons and of electrons in a neutral object are the same.
Yes i believe it does.
Each isotope has the same number of protons and electrons but a different number of neutrons.
The neutron. Unless it is an isotope, which has a different number of neutrons.
Regular elements contain regular neutron number and the same number of protons and neutrons. Isotopes have different neutron numbers than the original element, but the same number of protons and electrons.
NO. Isotopes are forms of an element that have the same numbers of protons and electrons, but differing numbers of neutrons. For example Helium-3 has two protons, two electrons, and one neutron and Helium-4 has two protons, two electrons, and two neutrons.A form of an element that has a different number of electrons than the number of protons is an "ion".
Protons and neutrons have almost the same mass.
They have the same number of protons (54) and electrons. 130Xe has one more neutron in the nucleus.
Protons = Atomic Number Electrons = Atomic Number Neutrons = Atomic Mass - Atomic Number *A note on Atomic Mass* Atomic Mass is the sum of the number of protons and neutrons in an atom. Every time you remove or add a Proton/Electron or a Neutron, you change the mass by one. *A note on Protons and Electrons* The number of Protons and Electrons in an atom is always the same. Whenever you talk about adding/removing a proton or an electron, you are by default adding/removing one of the other as well.
The number of electrons should = the number of protons.
protons, because the protons are positive and the electrons are negative so to have a neutral atom the protons and electrons must be balanced
Naturally, all elements have the same number of electrons and protons.
atomic number is the amount of protons, equal to the atomic number, the electrons, minus the mass number atomic number is the amount of protons, equal to the atomic number, the electrons, minus the mass number atomic number is the amount of protons, equal to the atomic number, the electrons, minus the mass number
