We’re being asked to determine the species that is represented by the given subatomic particles.
An element can be represented as:
You can determine the identity of the element using its atomic number:
Atomic number (Z):
• represents the identity of the element
• reveals the number of protons
• in a neutral element:
# of protons = # of electrons
Mass number (A)
• reveals the number of protons and neutrons
mass number = # of protons + # of neutrons
What species is represented by the following information?
p+ = 47 n° = 62 e- = 46
