Solution: How many electrons, protons, and neutrons does nitrogen-14 have? Is it an anion or cation?

Problem

How many electrons, protons, and neutrons does nitrogen-14 have? Is it an anion or cation?

Solution

We are asked to calculate the number of electronsprotons, and neutrons in nitrogen-14 and identify if it is an anion or cation.


Information 1:

We find nitrogen in the periodic table in period 2group 5. Its atomic number is 7.


Information 2:


Nitrogen-14 is an isotope of nitrogenRemember 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).
