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.
