An atom has 2 protons in its nucleus. Which of the following must be true for this atom to have no net charge? Question 2 options: The atom also has 2 positively charged neutrons in the nucleus. The atom has 2 negatively charged electrons outside the nucleus. The 2 positive protons have no influence on the overall charge of the atom. The atom has 2 negatively charged electrons in the nucleus.

    It wold need to have two electrons to negate the charge of the protons. Electron has a negative charge and protons have a positive charge.

    @PrincestonA the protons are in the nucleus, and the electrons are outside with a negative charge of it that make sense? now all elements are NEUTRAL which means that the number of protons must equal what?

    number of protons must equal the electron outside

    so if there are two protons and there must be how many electrons?

    yep! always remember that man if it says (no net charge)

    So that means protons and neutrons are the two subatomic particles are located within the nucleus of an atom?

    @PrincestonA neutrons have no charge but they have mass. FYI an atom can have a different number of neutrons that's called an isotope you know what that is?

    last thing then i g2g but can you tell me how many protons/electrons and neutrons are in this element. and also what the mass number and atomic numbers are? |dw:1442856342773:dw|
