We are being asked to find the number of protons, electrons, and neutrons for an atom of Aluminum-27.
Mass number Al = 27
Atomic Number Al = 13 (From periodic table)
Charge of the atom = 0 (consider the atom neutral because there is no mention of a charge in the problem)
How many protons, neutrons, and electrons are present in an atom of aluminum-27?
