It would likely have 6 neutrons which means it would have a mass of 12, hence Carbon-12, the most abundant isotope of C. If it had 8 neutrons (Carbon-14), it would be unstable and would decay by negative beta decay to stable Nitrogen-14, the most abundant isotope of N which has 7 protons and 7 neutons for a mass of 14.
The answer is 12.
The mass is the number of protons and neutrons added together. The answer is 12 because 6 protons + 6 neutrons = 12.
Atomic number is the number of protons. number of protons of an element is equal to number of electrons. therefore, in this case Carbon has 6 protons.
It is most likely to have 6.
(The constituent particles of an atom are the electron, the proton and the neutron; all three are fermions. However, the hydrogen-1 atom has no neutrons and the hydron ion has no electrons.) WIkipedia
An atom is made up of three parts. The protons, neutrons, and electrons. The protons and neutrons are located in the center of the atom called the nucleus. The electrons float around the atom in what is called orbitals.
The nucleus of the atom has a positive charge because the protons that found in the nucleus are positive and the neutrons have no charge. The electrons on the electron cloud have a negative charge. This means the entire atom has a neutral charge to it. The atom always has the same number of protons and electrons, which means they cancel their charges out.
an atom has two subatomic particles which are neutrons and protons in the nucleus or "center" and electrons surrounding the nucleus in orbitals, "orbit like" regions of space outside the nucleus.
None. Electrons are found in energy levels outside the nucleus, not in it. An atomic number of 20 tells you there are 20 protons in the nucleus of an atom, and 20 electrons in energy levels (or shells or orbitals depending on which model of the atom you are using) outside the nucleus.
Protons and Neutrons compose the nucleus of the atom. They are surrounded by a cloud of electrons. If our universe was an atom, the sun would be the nucleus (with protons and neutrons) and the orbiting planets would be the electrons.
Protons and neutrons are in the center of an atom in the nucleus. Electrons are dispersed around the nucleus.
Electrons, Protons, and Neutrons.
No. The nucleus of an atom contains protons and neutrons, but not electrons. Electrons are found in orbitals surrounding the nucleus.
Protons and neutrons are located within the nucleus. Electrons are revolving around the nucleus.
Electrons are never found in the nucleus of an atom, along with the protons. They exist in shells that surround the nucleus.
electron - electron cloud protons and neutron- nucleus
Protons, neutrons and electrons are located in the atom. The protons and neutrons are located in the atomic nucleus; the electrons are around the nucleus, arranged in shells.
Protons are in the nucleus of an atom along with the neutrons. electrons are in a cloud that is located around the nucleus.
The general particles of an atom are Protons, Neutrons and Electrons. The Protons and Neutrons are in the Nucleus of the atom and the Electrons are orbiting the Nucleus.
Protons are found in nucleus, as neutrons are also.
No, Electrons do. Protons do not orbit around the nucleus of atom. It is electron which moves around the nucleus.
