Given an element's atomic number and mass number, how can you tell the number of protons and neutrons in its nucleus? Number of protons = mass number; number of neutrons atomic number - mass number Number of protons = atomic number; number of neutrons = mass number + atomic number Number of protons = atomic number; number of neutrons = mass number - atomic number​

Question: Given an element's atomic number and mass number, how can you tell the number of protons and neutrons in its nucleus?Number of protons = mass number; number of neutrons atomic number - mass numberNumber of protons = atomic number; number of neutrons = mass number + atomic number (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Number of protons = atomic number; number of neutrons = mass number - atomic number​

Answer: The correct way to determine the number of protons and neutrons in an element's nucleus based on its atomic number and mass number is:

Number of protons = atomic number Number of neutrons = mass number - atomic number

So, the correct statement is: "Number of protons = atomic number; number of neutrons = mass number - atomic number."
