    Proton count = the identity of that element what that element is. Neutrons can change and that's the definition of an isotope. Something that has different number of neutrons. #of electrons can change too. That's what an ion is can be positive loss of an electron to give a positive charge or gaining an electron to have a negative charge an anion.
