see.. protons = electrons protons = atomic number protons+ neutrons = mass number
ribhu

atomic number for proton determination and then mass number for neutron determination since we already know protons from atomic number..

i dont understand the second part
ribhu
  • ribhu
once u know atomic number.. u know the number of protons present.
ribhu
  • ribhu
and when u know protons, u know the mass number... u can calculate the neutrons from last relation. and protons = electrons.. hence we can determine every sub atomic particle
ribhu
  • ribhu
u understood?? or any doubt..u can ask me

thank you

Knowing the number of protons does not give you the mass number unless you also know the number of neutrons. You know the number of protons simply from knowing which element you have, but to know the number of neutrons you must know which isotope of that element you have, as many elements have multiple isotopes.
