A neutron has a charge of 0. A proton has a charge of +1. An electron has a charge of -1. In order to find the total charge, multiply the number of each by their respective charges. Opposite charges attract each other, while the same charges repulse each other. Atom A = 7(+1) + 6(0) + 6(-1) = +1 Since it has a positive net charge, it will be attracted to a negative charge. Atom B = 6(+1) + 7(0) + 7(-1) = -1 Since it has a negative net charge, it will be repulsed by a negative charge.
