    What two subatomic particles are found inside the nucleus of an atom?

    Explanation
    Protons and neutrons are found inside the nucleus of an atom. Protons have a positive charge, while neutrons have no charge. These subatomic particles are responsible for the mass of the atom and are tightly packed together in the nucleus. Electrons, which have a negative charge, orbit around the nucleus in specific energy levels.

    The total number of protons and neutrons make up the                                 of an atom?

    Explanation
    The total number of protons and neutrons in an atom is referred to as the atomic mass or weight. This value represents the combined mass of the nucleus of the atom. The protons and neutrons are the two types of subatomic particles found in the nucleus, and their total number determines the atomic mass. The atomic mass is measured in atomic mass units (amu) and is an important characteristic of an element as it helps in identifying and classifying different atoms.

    Rate this question:

  • 35. 

    What number do you look at on the Periodic Table of Elements to determine the number of protons and electrons?

    Explanation
    The atomic number on the Periodic Table of Elements indicates the number of protons and electrons in an atom. Protons are positively charged particles found in the nucleus of an atom, while electrons are negatively charged particles that orbit around the nucleus. The atomic number represents the unique identity of each element and determines its position on the periodic table. It is a fundamental property of an element and is used to understand the atom's structure and behavior.

  • 36. 

    Which Scientist created the first Periodic Table of Elements?

    Explanation
    Dimitri Mendeleev is credited with creating the first Periodic Table of Elements. He organized the elements based on their atomic mass and properties, and left gaps for elements that were yet to be discovered. His periodic table was a significant breakthrough in the field of chemistry as it provided a systematic way of organizing and understanding the elements. Mendeleev's work laid the foundation for the modern periodic table that we use today.
