The ionization energy for hydrogen is 1312 kilojoules per mole. This is the same as the ionization potential and is the energy required to remove one electron from the atom. While other elements have more than one ioniza... More » Science Chemistry Atoms & Molecules

In kilograms, the mass of a hydrogen atom is 1.67 times 10 to the power of negative 27 or 1.67 x 10-24 grams. That conversion is based on one atomic measurement unit of atomic mass for an atom of hydrogen. More » Science Chemistry

Hydrogen atoms have a neutral charge, containing a single proton with a positive charge and a single electron with a negative charge. Unlike all other elements, hydrogen atoms contain no neutrons. More » Science Chemistry Atoms & Molecules
