The core, or dense center of an atom, is called the atom's nucleus. The nucleus contains protons, which have positive charges, and neutrons, which have no charge and are neutral. More »

The Bohr model for silver explains the number of electrons, protons and neutrons that are present in the atom, and it diagrams the placement of the electrons within silver’s five energy levels. Silver’s Bohr model indica... More »

The atomic radius of an atom is determined by the total number of electrons, electron shells and protons in an atom. Protons are located in the nucleus of an atom and create an effective nuclear charge. Electrons within ... More »

The atomic number indicates the number of protons present in the nucleus of an atom, which is used to uniquely identify the atom, as well as its chemical properties. The atomic number is denoted by the universal symbol "... More »

An atom is electrically neutral because it has the same number of electrons as it does protons. The atoms neutrality can only be changed by altering the number of electrons present in the atom. More »
