We have to determine how many electrons, protons and neutrons does a neutral Cr-52 atom contain.
Atomic number is defined as the number of protons inside the nucleus of an atom
Mass number is the sum of the number of protons and neutrons inside the nucleus of an atom.
In a neutral atom the number of protons (positive charges) and electrons (negative charges) are equal.
Specify the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons in the neutral atom chromium-52.
