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