User: If an atom has seven electrons how many are in the second shell? 2 5 7 You need to know the number of protons to figure this out.

Weegy: The proton is a subatomic particle with the symbol p or p+ and a positive electric charge of 1 elementary charge. One or more protons are present in the nucleus of each atom.

User: What charge does the proton give to the nucleus? neither since the nucleus does not carry a charge, only atoms do positive or negative, depending on the number of electrons positive negative

Weegy: The answer is A. positive.

Since there is no figure or you can't actually see it, you're not supposed to guess. Please ask clarifications if and only if necessary.

Which count of subatomic particles gives the atom its unique identity as an element, also called the atomic number? the number of protons the number of electrons the number of neutrons plus the number of protons the number of neutrons
Weegy: A. the number of protons User: How are the masses of subatomic particles related? Protons and neutrons are much larger than electrons. Electrons are much larger than protons and neutrons. All subatomic particles are the same size. Neutrons and electrons are much more massive than protons. Weegy: A. the number of protons User: Which subatomic particle adds atomic mass to an atom but without adding charge? proton electron ion neutron Weegy: A. the number of protons User: The periodic table contains information about which types of matter? ions molecules compounds elements Weegy: The periodic table contains information about: B. elements. User: Does the nucleus of an atom have a positive or negative charge? The nucleus contains protons, so it has a positive charge. The nucleus contains the neutrons so it has a neutral charge. The nucleus contains the electrons, so it has a negative charge. The nucleus contains protons, so it has a negative charge. User: A neutral charge by an atom is caused by which of the following conditions? balance in number of electrons and protons balance in number of protons and neutrons presence of neutrons in the nucleus the balance of electrons in each electron shell Weegy: The answer is: C. balance in number of electrons and protons. User: Calcium has 20 electrons. How many electrons are in the outer shell? 2 6 8 0 Weegy: Whats your question about electrons? User: how many electrons are in the outer sill of calcium User: Which subatomic particle is responsible for chemical properties of atoms? electrons neutrons neutrons and protons protons Weegy: The following statement is true D. An electron has far less mass than either a proton or neutron User: What is the maximum number of electrons in the first electron shell, closest to the nucleus? 2 8 1 4 Weegy: Each shell can contain only a fixed number of electrons; the 1st shell can hold up to ...

If an atom has six protons and four neutrons, what is its charge?
Weegy: The number of protons an atom has is equal to its atomic number. In this case, there are 3 protons, so its atomic number is 3 and this is lithium (Li), the third element on the periodic table. [ Atomic mass is sum of the number of protons and neutrons in the nucleus. Here, that is 3 and 4, respectively, giving our atom an atomic mass of 7. The number of electrons does not affect either the atomic number or the atomic mass, but instead determines the bonding properties of the atom and whether it has a charge. If the number of electrons is equal to the number of protons, as is the case here, the charge is neutral (0). If there are more electrons than protons, the atom will be negatively charged (5 electrons and 3 protons - > charge = -2), and if there are more protons than electrons, the atom will be positively charged (2 electrons and 3 protons - > charge = +1).
