kHow do you find the number of protons, electrons, and the charge of N^-1? What makes this different from just finding N? Thanks so much!!!

  • Chemistry -

    The charge of N^-1 is -1

    To find the protons, look on a period table, and find the atomic number. Atomic number = protons

    Atoms have the same number of protons and eletrons because they have to balance.

  • Chemistry -

    Regular N is not ionic, so it has no charge I think.

  • Chemistry -

    Since this is N^-1, it will have one fewer electron than the number of protons.
    Regular nitrogen is N2.
