No. of protons is 7.

No. of neutrons is atomic weight -no. of protons.

In neutral atom no. of protons equals the number of electrons which would be 7 in this case.

Refer to Periodic Table for more information.

### What must have the same number for an atom to be neutral?

Protons(p+) and electrons(e-) each charge cancels the opposite one.

### What is the formation of a nitride ion from a neutral nitrogen atom?

they are formed when nitrogen come in contact with more electropositive metals who force it to take electrons from them.

### Which atom has 49 protons?

if im correct u will have 126 elctrons no you will have 49 you must have the same amount if the atom is to have no charge. Protons are positive and electrons are negative, there for they have the same amount

### What would change of an atom be if it has six protons and six electrons?

P + and e - As the charges are balanced in this atom the atom is neutral.

### What represents a neutral atom acquiring an electron in an exothermic process?

A+e- -&gt; A-+energy

### Why a neutral atom has the same number of protons and electrons?

To compensate each proton (+1 charge) you need an equal amount of electrons (-1 charge for each) to get a neutral atom.p*(+1) and e*(-1) can only be zero if p equals e .

### What is the number of electron?

The number of electrons (charge -1 per e) in a certain atom is equal to the the number of protons (charge +1 per p), since it's neutral. The proton number is the same as the atom number of that particular element (atom) in the periodic table.

### What happens to a neutral atom if it gains an electron?

Then this atom will become an anion (negatively charged) Example: Cl + e- --&gt; Cl-

### What would the charge of an atom be if it has six protons ans six electrons?

An atom has no net charge, and is therefore neutral, as long as the number of protons is the same as the number of electrons. There would be no charge. If there is the same number of protons to electrons, there would be no extra attraction to create a charge.

### How many electrons does an ion of oxygen have?

First you want to start with how many electrons there are in a neutral atom. In a neutral atom, the number of electrons equals the number of protons, which equals the atomic number, which is eight in this case. When becoming an ion and reacting with other elements in an ionic bond, oxygen will gain two electrons. So we just add two onto the number in a neutral atom for a total of ten.

### What is the relationship between number of element electrons and the number of protons?

Usually, for an neutral atom, the number of protons equals the number of electrons. If the atom is positively charged, it means that it has lost a certain number of electrons. For example, the Fe atom has 26 protons so 26 electrons in its neutral form. It can turns into Fe2+, in which case it would have lost 2 electrons. The new number of electrons is then 24. On the other side, Cl has 17 protons and 17 electrons. It can turn into Cl-, in which case it has gained one electron, the new number of electron is 18. Be careful, the number of protons does not change, it is the number of electrons.
