Name Symbol Charge Mass (g) Mass (amu) Location Proton P + +1 1.673 x 10 -24 1 Nucleus Neutron n 0 0 1.675 x 10 -24 1 Nucleus Electron e –1 9.109 x 10 -28 0.0005 Outside Nucleus
What are isotopes ?
While all isotopes of a given element share the same number of protons, each isotope differs from the others in its number of neutrons.
What are ions ? How are ions formed form atoms? To what do the terms cation and anion refer?
Very simply an ion is an atom or molecule that has gained or lost an electron. Both positive and negative ions exist.
