# Atomic Model- Modeling Worksheet ```Pre-lab notes
Atomic number = the number of protons in an atom
Mass number = the number of protons and number of neutrons in an atom
(mass = protons + neutrons)
Can also be used to calculate number of neutrons (mass - protons= neutrons)
HypothesisHow do neutral atoms become ions? (an atom with an a charge)
How do neutral atoms become isotopes? (an atom with a different mass)

identify the atom on the periodic table?
2. What effect, besides the quantity, was there on the atom when electrons were gained or
lost?
3. What did NOT change in the atom when electrons were gained or lost?
4. What effect, besides the quantity, was there on the atom when protons were gained or
lost?
