We’re being asked to determine number o protons, neutrons, and electrons in 133Cs.
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
How many protons and neutrons are in the nucleus of each of the following atoms? In a neutral atom of each element how many electrons are present?
