## Can you calculate the number of neutrons in an atom?

The number of electrons in a neutral atom is equal to the number of protons. The mass number of the atom (M) is equal to the sum of the number of protons and neutrons in the nucleus. The number of neutrons is equal to the difference between the mass number of the atom (M) and the atomic number (Z).

## How many neutrons are in an atom?

For example, silicon has 14 protons and 14 neutrons. Its atomic number is 14 and its atomic mass is 28. The most common isotope of uranium has 92 protons and 146 neutrons. Its atomic number is 92 and its atomic mass is 238 (92 + 146)….2.1 Electrons, Protons, Neutrons, and Atoms.Elementary ParticleChargeMassProton+11Neutron01Electron1~0

How many neutrons are in the nucleus of an atom that has a mass number of 36 and an atomic number of 25?

so, atomic mass = no. of neutrons + atomic no. so the no. of neutrons is 11.

How many neutrons are in an atom with the atomic number 16?

### What has 16 protons and 18 neutrons?

Thus, each atom or ion of sulfur must contain 16 protons. We are told that the ion also has 16 neutrons, meaning the mass number of the ion is 16 + 16 = 32. Because the ion has 16 protons and 18 electrons, its net charge is 2–. Thus, the symbol for the ion is 32S2–.

What element has 17 protons and 18 neutrons?

chlorine (Cl)

## Is chlorine a neutral atom?

Atoms are neutral; they contain the same number of protons as electrons. A neutral chlorine atom, for example, contains 17 protons and 17 electrons. By adding one more electron we get a negatively charged Cl- ion with a net charge of -1.
