We are asked to calculate the number of electrons, protons, and neutrons in nitrogen-14 and identify if it is an anion or cation.
We find nitrogen in the periodic table in period 2, group 5. Its atomic number is 7.
Nitrogen-14 is an isotope of nitrogen. Remember that Isotopes represent atoms of an element that contain the same atomic number (same number of protons), but different mass numbers (different number of neutrons).
How many electrons, protons, and neutrons does nitrogen-14 have? Is it an anion or cation?
