Atomic number=number of proton
Atomic weight=number of neutrons + number of protons
Net charge=number of protons + number of electrons
If oxygen is O and there is no charge, then net charge=0
Not the answer you are looking for? Search for more explanations.
Read what I wrote above. You need to know the # of protons to find the number of electrons.
oh 6 protons right
Why would you think its 6 protons?
why wouldn't I 6+ 6 12
where did you get 12 from?
its my last choice and its the only thing that seems right 6+6 =12
No, I said atomic weight=number of protons + number of neutrons.
Not number of neutrons=number of protons + number of electrons
I really have no idea and im sure the answer is right in front of me I REALLY appreciate your time and trying to help its just not working best response and medal its not u its me this is my second year of this class and it looks like I will be back at it next year LOL
No, you are wrong. Trust me
I know I am
If you look at the periodic table, oxygen's atomic number is 8
I said atomic number=number of proton
So 8=8 which is 8 protons
If you look at the periodic table again its atomic weight is 16
and since atomic weight=# of protons + # of neutrons
16=8 protons+ # of neutrons
Since oxygen has a charge of O it is 0
In order to get a charge of zero, the # of electrons must equal the # of protons
Since there are 8 protons, there must be 8 electrons also.
Hope it helps!
